Gut feeling. A hunch. Just knowing.
All ways of describing intuition.
Usually, following the gut feeling, hunch, or what you just know, has a positive outcome. And that’s good enough a reason to use your intuition.
But maybe you want something more concrete.
So, here’s a few:
Using your intuition, you may be able to:
- make better decisions
- avoid costly mistakes
- make connections with people that you wouldn’t otherwise have discovered
- get timely input from unexpected sources to your latest project
- know the right thing to say to the right person at the right time
In my own experience, when I’ve followed my intuition, things have gone well. When I’ve ignored it, things go badly (generally speaking).
And when I follow my intuition, it gets stronger. I get more intuitive hits, more regularly, and more strongly.
So you get a two-for-one deal: better experiences, and better intuitive hits for better experiences further down the line.
Wait, that’s a three-for-one deal.
Anyway, using your intuition is a Good Thing.
Do it. Do it now!
