Chapter 28. Be Practical and Magical Abo... > The Both and More Perspective

The Both and More Perspective

Positive uncertainty’s approach to deciding what to do applies the both and more perspective. It recommends being practical—rational, businesslike, sensible, and reasonable, with down-to-earth thinking. And it recommends being magical— intuitive, mysterious, nonsensical, and playful, with pie-in-the sky thinking. It involves using some rules, breaking some rules, and making up some rules.

To be both practical and magical is to be holistic—whole-brained and whole-hearted. Heart is often defined as the other side of rational, but different from intuitive. It is defined as the source of one’s being, emotions, and sensibilities; the repository of one’s deepest and sincerest feelings and beliefs; and courage, resolution, and fortitude. The left brain is practical; the right brain is magical. Deciding with the heart is said to be curious, empathic, nonjudgmental, courageous, wise, and compassionate. Thus, the both and more perspective calls for using both sides of your brain and all of your heart.
