The primary objective of our brain is survival. When we are faced with a tiger or have to make a split second decision to dodge a vehicle, we want to consult our brain.
In instances of making hard decisions about our careers, relationships, or other such matters, survival may not necessarily be the objective. In those cases, we should move away from the brain and look to our heart.

We are a brain-centered society that values smarts over compassion, success over community, and domination over equity. If we could move our basis for decisions from the formers to the latters, we would have a much more beautiful world.
