I usually build a rhythm in my bullet games and think on my opponents time. It requires some pattern recognition, but... it works.

I always try to match the clock u look start of well but suddenly whilst you think you are matching the other player they have 2.5mins and I have 20 sec's left at that stage its pointless to continue checkmates should have *10 points ..

This is advice for short term, if I realize I'm spending like more than 5 seconds on a move, I almost always just default to a move that doesn't kill your position. It's not a good habit, but it works quite a bit for me. In terms of long term advice, play more slower games and slowly pace yourself to play bullet
