happy#159 – planning vs. intuition

While planning is mostly done in our frontal cortex, the conscious mind, intuition or gutt feeling is more of an unconscious process.
While for a large part of my life I was sure that the more knowledge I have, the better decisions I can take and therefor become a better person, this belief changed over the last years.
I had to learn that although our conscious decisions seem to make so much sense, our unconsious is really in charge.
When conscious mind is in charge of the navigation, the unconscious is the running the boat, being the skipper. As long as we don’t convince the skipper that our navigation is correct, we can calculate as much as we want and will still never change the course.
Therefor it is not so much a question of planning VERSUS intuition but more planning AND intuition.
Make plans and take decisions what to do and then check back with your intuition if this is the right way to go. Be careful, it speaks in a very soft voice and when you hear it trust your gutt. Your unconscious always wants to protect you and will be your strongest supporter if you act accordingly.
