Things to Think About - We may build on emotions but we also need reason to cast light on our efforts

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier


"We may build on emotions but we also need a reason to cast light on our efforts."  Tomas Garrigue Masaryk

The more I read about the first Czechoslovak president, Tomas Garrigue, the more I appreciate his common sense and wisdom as a leader.  Here, for example, he recognizes human nature—emotions, but he hastens to add the element of critical thinking in decision making.

It’s this kind of self-awareness that allows one to acknowledge the fact that, yes, we all have emotional responses, but when we do, we should pause for a minute to remember Masaryk’s words, which will greatly increase the quality, credibility, and effectiveness of our decisions.

Good luck on your journey!
