Imagine you're on a romantic date with your dream match. He or she looks incredible and has a stellar background; a high paying job at a respectable firm, solid values, impeccable style and similar interests to you. But there's one small caveat: You have no emotional connection. Zero chemistry. It's like you're talking to a dead fish! Well, you can forget about having a relationship.
My life has been full of big decisions lately. The kind that feel like decisions that will shape my future happiness and I sometimes feel the burden of choice weighing on me. It's reassuring to know that it's essential that both reason and emotion play such a vital role in decision-making. I always thought my gut was tied to my emotions -- I actually think it's one and the same.
