When I was first approached
with the business gig
that ended yesterday,
my brain screamed ‘yes’
but my gut said ‘no.’
I listened to my brain,
ignored my gut,
and the result was a heavy dent
in my carefully nurtured reputation.
Suze Orman has a great post
on why listening to your gut
as an entrepreneur
is always the right thing to do.
“This is my most trusted business practice:
The minute I say yes to something
that is not honest and true for me
is the minute I stop being a good businesswoman.
I have never been led astray
by my commitment to listening to my gut.”
Listen to your gut.
It sees truths your brain will try to rationalize away.
