Most people tend to think logic vs. emotion, but our “gut instincts” are more rational than previously thought. They are generated to help us with choices. Emotions can be quite powerful. Emotions come from past experiences of your lifetime.
Emotions can benefit your ultimate goal. So if becoming angry helps you, you may be inclined to use that emotion in the next situation. The best choices are usually a combination of logic and emotion.
Most of our decisions are made unconsciously and before we even ‘think’ of a choice. Effective decision making is easier if you break it down to simpler steps. Deciding on what’s most important to you or the most value. Gathering information and weighing the risks involved.
Avoid hasty decisions, faulty reasoning, red herrings and generalizations. Our emotions are a strong motivator, be aware of and use this to your benefit. Emotions help guide us, even if we don’t realize it. Being aware of this can improve so many things!
