I think our logical mind can be a huge barrier to discovery of new ideas, connections and opportunities.
Sometimes, you might agree to do something (i.e go to an event, attend a meeting etc) that doesn't make much sense. So nine out of ten times, even after agreeing to do something, your logical mind will take over and force you to get out of that agreement.
I can vividly remember few times I faced this conflict but somehow did what I agreed to do even though every cell in my left brain was screaming 'this is really stupid ... you are going to waste you time'.
Ignoring this powerful voice of our logical mind is very hard to do. But when I look back on my own life experiences, I can vividly recall the situations where I forced myself to 'feel the stupidity and do it anyway', and discovered or received something remarkable.
Next time when you face a situation like this, see if you can apply this strategy, and enjoy the surprising and valuable result it can produce.
