Power is a lot like real estate. It’s all about location, location, location. The closer you are to the source, the higher your property value.
Decisions based on emotion aren’t decisions, at all. They’re instincts. Which can be of value. The rational and the irrational complement each other. Individually they’re far less powerful.
