Q.

There has always been debate on emotion and reasoning and which one should follow which one. Now, despite all the reasonings, is not it a fact that major businesses were created out of passion - a kind of emotion? If so, is it good to discount the contribution of emotion?

Heart is the ship and brain is the navigator. In calm weather, they are in good terms with each other. But in storm or crisis , the brain overrules the heart and take decisions , when our heart sheds the silent tears . True leaders are those, who can match their brain and heart in extreme conditions also.

They are bold when they lose
They are calm when they win
But one most important thing in any business is character .......

G.B.Shaw said.
" The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man"
If you count emotions as unreasonable, I hope this is your answer.

Emotion without a passion for anything is like an empty vessel. It may make a lot of noise but nothing more than that. Emotions drive our inner core, that feeling or trait that keeps propelling us to strive for more or give it another try or come to our rescue when we think there isn't any more hope or everything looks helpless in our eyes. The intensity of the emotion that swells up inside of us would help to a great extent where any further application of logic or reasoning has come to an end from the practicality of it or practical point of view and it is this intense feeling that tells us to see much more ahead to go that extra step or see beyond what others cannot see.
