My gut is often the difference
between failure and success.
I have to make a decision.
Everything looks good
but something isn’t quite right.
I have that feeling
that I’m making the wrong decision.

So I change my decision
and days or weeks or months later,
I discover my gut was right.

The issue is…
the gut isn’t loud.
The gut is quiet,
a murmur,
a sensation.

If I’m distracted with other projects
or tasks or my email or my phone,
I won’t hear it.

This is why being fully present
is so important.

Business journalist
David Gelles,

The Costco Connection,
shares

“When we actually start
paying attention
to what we’re doing,
we’ll notice a whole lot of things
that we might otherwise miss.

When we can stop
this incessant mind wandering
and actually be fully present in the moment,
there is a whole range of sensations
that reveal themselves to us
that we’re otherwise
usually too distracted to notice.”

If you have a big decision to make,
unplug,
give that decision your full attention.
Be present
and listen to your gut.
