ANGER ON MY MIND

Emotions: The forgotten key to decision making

Posted on: November 4, 2007

Much has been said about not making decisions based on our emotions and this is true to some extent. However our emotions are our window to who we are and what we want  in this life.  Even our  values and beliefs are influenced by how we feel about  them–somewhere in all our decisions is an emotion. 

Often our anger is fueled by a lack of awareness of who we are and what we want. We therefore tend to make decisions that are not in our best interest and our unmet needs fuel our anger. I am advocating that we build a stronger emotional vocabulary so that we become better and differentiating what we feel and the meaning behind our feelings. Improve your emotional vocabulary will be a vital first step to improving your decision making.

Carlos,

You’re right – it’s difficult to address your unmet needs without understanding how one feels about a particular issue.
