Learn to Trust your Gut

Daily ReadLearn to Trust your Gut

As a business leader, you constantly need to come up with new ideas. You’re creating a vision for tomorrow — a world that doesn’t exist yet — and your greatest resource for getting it right is your instincts. So how do you trust your ‘gut” when everyone else thinks you’re crazy?

  1. Follow your interest. When you can’t get an idea out of your head, your gut is telling you it has merit.
  2. Commit yourself fully. Every good instinct has to be supported by a lot of dedicated work. Trust your instincts and find a way to follow through.
  3. Immerse yourself in the world around your idea.  When you become immersed in a subject or group, your mind draws on all of that knowledge with very little effort. Your instincts become informed choices made in the blink of an eye.
  4. Ignore the rules. The leaders who trust their instincts will be the ones who set the new rules — the ones who anticipate and solve tomorrow’s problems.
  5. Allow your idea to change. When acting on instinct, be flexible about the implementation. The basic instinct stays the same, but the idea changes and evolves.
