When we give feelings primacy

For many years I was taught that my feelings are the most important element in making decisions.

Our feelings are one aspect of a complex decision-making process. When we give feelings primacy over all other elements we lose our complex sense-making skills. As such, we can become prone to all the negative elements of feelings. Feeling entitled, overly sensitive and righteous, for example.

We need a more integral approach.

Gather data, understand the whole context, take time to consider, sink down into your gut and feelings, roll the collective perspectives around, sink even further into your intuitive senses, ensure alignment, and then make a full and absolute decision yes.
