|Wanna get ahead in the world? There are really only just a few answers. Yet, many people tend to complicate things.
Well, Brocrates, it’s because we live in a world that is often gray. It’s neither black or white. Our solutions need to be gray, but you can’t win if you’re too emotional and logic doesn’t always make sense.
It comes down to the ability to think with your mind AND your heart. It’s a simple concept, but it’s not so easy. However, Naveen Jain, CEO of Intelius gave us some insight with the following quote:
“The human brain works as a binary computer and can only analyze the exact information-based zeros and ones (or black and white). Our heart is more like a chemical computer that uses fuzzy logic to analyze information that can’t be easily defined in zeros and ones.”
We can be at our best if we not only work to develop our intellect but also our intuition.

P.S. The greatest people in the world know how to balance logic and emotion. It’s not easy, but it comes with practice and surrounding yourself with people who are doing the same.

Most people attempt to pursue meaning and they often find that it might require sacrifice so they default back into searching for temporary happiness. I don't blame em either...
