Looking back, I have realised that most of failed decisions in my case were due to emotions prevailing over logic and this trend continues even now.
We need to control our emotions specially when taking crucial decisions. Logic should prevail.

Can't do much.
Because emotion is a more powerful force than logic.
But we can always repent later.

Most people were overcome with emotion and so on but not everybody lost sight of logic. Too often, I see even grown-up men and women are blinded by emotion, who make decisions in their lives solely based on emotional reactions without much use of logic. The only way to avoid falling into the trap is to rely on logic with the assumption of compassion. Emotions all too often overpower logic. Please don't be so ignorant as to deny this...!

Emotion is the ship and logic is the navigator. In calm weather, they are in good terms with each other. But in storm or crisis , the logic overrules the emotions and take decisions , when our emotions sheds the silent tears .

True leaders are those, who can match their logic and emotions in extreme conditions also...... I am no great and mostly go by my emotions . And really I want to live that way only to keep my emotions alive

Still tears come to my eyes whenever I see that photograph which own the Pulizer prize in 1994 during Sudan Famine .The photograph shows , a famine stricken child , crawling towards an united nations food camp , located a kilometer away.
The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that he can eat it. The picture shocked the world also. No one knows what happened to the child , including the photographer , Kevin Carter ,who left the place as soon as the photograph was taken.

Three months later he committed suicide due to depression .

When dealing with women, understand that often their actions and words are dictated more by emotion than logic. So when one sees a female acting in a purely emotional way, it is best to approach them emotionally or not to approach them at all. Confronting a women with logic when theyre fully engaged in emotional rage, happiness or feeling is like bringing a knife to a gun fight.

I remember dealing with a girl a few months ago, who was in tears and telling how much she hated her boyfriend. I approached her logically and told her to leave him and that it was the best thing for her. The bruises on her arms, I said was a good reason for her to leave him. But did logic work? No. A few minutes later she said she thought she could change him and inside he was a pure angel.
