We take decisions from our emotions and then rationalise them with the logic.
This is true about everything humans do. We get hang on to our ideas, business, relations, cause we support, politicians we vote, clothes we wear, things we buy, and everywhere else.
Smarter are those, who know that they don’t have to rationalise their decisions, instead to accept that it wasn’t the brightest thing to do. Instead of rationalising, move ahead if you want to be a winner in the life.
