Y’know, just now something happened to me that “opened my eyes”…
You’d think after all these years with all the fancy gadgets we got, we humans would still know better than to ignore our intuition. But nooooo…every now and then we like thinking we’re smarter than we really are.
Heck, I’m guiltier about this than I’d like to admit ( ain’t I an idiot… ).
Here’s an example why…
Time came for me to sit down, relax and play my fave video game ( Metal Gear Solid V TPP ). As I was taking it out of it’s case my finger lightly rubbed the shiny surface of the disc ( whooops ) and left a small nasty lil’ smudge.
Somewhere inside me a voice ordered me to wipe it.
My years as a gamer taught me never to put a smudged disc in a console, it never worked.
But I ignored that voice. Don’t ask me why, I just did.
And guess what happened next?
The damn disc didn’t just fail to read. It crashed my damn PS3!
Talk about fiascos…
I whipped the disc out, listened to that nagging voice in my head and actually cleaned it this time round, and it worked.
This is exactly like how, after a while in your biz your mind is gonna build a “hidden” library of what it KNOWS is correct. No matter how desperately you hold on to the idiot ball and refuse to listen to it…it’ll almost always be right.
It has to be.
Our species had to evolve this little “survival mechanism” to keep track of all the times we got in danger or all the times we screwed up. It’s kept us alive so far.
And now it’s working double time to keep your business alive too.
Call it “instinct”.
Call it “ women’s intuition”
Call it “your stomach”
Call it “ the voices in my head”
Call it “boogiepop “…I don’t care…
Whatever they fuck you call it…listen to it.
It’ll save you from committing business suicide via idiot ball tactics!
