Yes, it's called theory. Add the variable in whose effect you are
interested and add variables you think influence both the variable of
interest and the dependent variable. Do _not_ add variables that are
influenced by the variable of interest and in turn influence the
dependent variable. In other words add confounding variables but not
intervening variables.
