Trusting Your Gut Is The Best Business Tool You’ve Got! 🛠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Intuition is big data for your body.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As Chip Wilson says, “It’s the result of your body’s own algorithms processing millions of data points that surround you every day. That’s why more than 40% of CEOs say they still make decisions based on intuition, despite having access to troves of empirical data.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t get me wrong, data and analytics play an important role in business decisions. However, they cannot be the only factor. A good leader knows how to balance data and intuition when making important decisions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The good news is that intuition is something we all have! The key is learning to listen and trust it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I always say, intuition is a muscle that must be trained and strengthened to perform under pressure. The best way to strengthen it, is to practice! Practice listening. Practice being with your thoughts. Practice balancing intuition and data.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Most people identify themselves as either an analytical, theoretical, or intuitive-minded person. Which are you? Do you have both?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
