Listen to your gut…

“There are times in all of our lives when a reliance on gut or intuition just seems more appropriate–when a particular course of action just feels right. And interestingly I’ve discovered it’s in facing life’s most important decisions that intuition seems the most indispensable to getting it right.”

Tim Cook

Sometimes all the preparation, logic and knowledge in the world doesn’t give you enough information to make a necessary decision. And there are other times when you know that you don’t have enough information but yet the decision seems easy.

I have learned in life that ignoring my gut or intuition is fraught with peril. I can’t think of a time in life where I have had a gut sense about something, and then ignored that feeling, when it didn’t come back to haunt me. The intuition is an amazing thing, but one has to have the ability to listen to it and pay attention to what your gut is telling you.

Now I am not saying that paying attention to your gut means that you let your intuition make all your decisions and you can just ignore the data and put off doing the work to ensure you have the right information at hand. However, there are times when you need to really listen to what your gut sense is telling you.

The key is to be in tune with your inner dialogue and hone your listening skills. If you don’t take the time to listen, you can’t pay attention to something that no one else can provide, your own gut instincts…
