There was an article I read yesterday about going with your gut. I couldn’t pass the oportunity to link to it and talk about it!
I hope I’m not the only one, but I’ve learned to trust my gut. In fact I’ve conditioned myself to take my gut reaction over everything else. Fortunately I can report that I don’t think my gut has yet to fail me in the long run.
That’s one of my “tricks” to writing multiple choice exams. If I don’t know the answer I stick with whatever was my first reaction. Yes, at first it may be hard to “hear” what your gut says, but you have to learn! I never change my answers after either, (unless it’s obvious that 1+1 does not equal 3).
Yet many of us ignore this tool — or worse, respond to urges that are misguided or the product of a fevered imagination. Fine-tuning your intuition will help you make better decisions whether you’re buying a car, making new acquaintances, or solving problems at work. It could even save your life.
