Brain -Versus-Heart

Found this interesting quote in an amazing book Resonate by Nancy Duarte :

Emotions and beliefs are masters, reason their servant. Ignore emotion, and reason slumbers; trigger emotion, and reason comes rushing to help.

-Henry M Boettinger

( Author of Moving Mountains or the Art and Craft of Letting Others See Things Your Way)

I have not read the book ‘Moving Mountains or the Art and Craft of Letting Others See Things Your Way’ and I am not aware of the circumstance that influenced the author to write it.

Nonetheless, thumps up to the author for the eye opening thought !

For once the ‘THINK LOGICALLY’ bandwagon loses it’s shine. Emotions and beliefs win the logic-versus-emotion, brain-versus-heart debate.

Yayey ! Yipeee!

Sorry, logical, rational, analytical, whose actions are always ‘thought out’ type friends.

I’m from the opposite camp – the emotional, sentimental, ‘ I have a feeling’ type.

And my recent decision to sign in for NaBloPoMo15 was triggered by emotions and helped by logic.
