Sometimes in life you are face with difficult circumstances and you have to make a decision that can be life altering. It’s important to be able to identify between your logical decision and your emotional decision.
When you make decisions based on logic, it’s based on information and data. When you make an emotional decision, it’s based on your heart and how you feel. Most people who are shrewd operators make decisions based on information instead of emotions. Before you make a decision, make sure you have clearly identified the risks and rewards of such decision. You have to be able to control your emotions and not react solely on them. Add a dose of logic to your decisions. In the short term, emotions will beat logic when making a decision. However, in the long term, logic will prevail. For instance, you can get excited about something and decided to get involve in it without being logical about whether or not it would be the right fit for you. Once the excitement is gone, logic will kick in and that would determine whether you stay or not.
When you make a decision based on information, it’s important to attach a level of emotions to it to help you follow through on your decision. When things get tough, your reason WHY will keep you from quitting. That’s where emotions play a major role. We are now in the Information Age and those who succeed are those with the right information and the right balance of emotions attached to their decisions. Strive to be logically emotional.
