No. There's a phrase "follow your heart", that's about as close as it gets. It means that if you can't make a tough choice you should do the thing that deep down you really feel passionate about.

I suppose that if you definitely, positively have to make a decision, and you've given it as much thought, with consideration for reason, logic and evidence, and can't decide, then a reasoned approach to what "feels" right, would be the best option. It would be better than doing what feels wrong, or just picking at random. The outcome might help in making better decisions based on evidence and reason in the future.

For myself, I'd say that the "follow your heart option" should only be used where a decision is imperative, and no rational course comes to mind, in the given time frame.
