This lesson is in many respects counter to society, now I’m not saying you should forget reason, logic, maths and trust a mysterious thing that no one really understands.
But at the same time that is what I am saying, and I know this makes me sound absolutely nuts, but at the same time there is no point in fighting your instincts.
Too often people second guess themselves, for example in tests they fill out their paper and then go through it again changing the answers, only to find out their first answer was right.
Now I’m not saying don’t go through your paper again and re-read the question in a test although I usually don’t, if you want the honest truth, I’m saying if you’re not sure trust your first instinct.
Ultimately if you think it’s the right decision with conviction you should go for it.
I don’t think anything really explains this better than how I chose my university.
Going round the university, reads loads of stats online, reviews and it becomes someone what of a mathematical decision.
I searched online for University’s that did my course and found loads but one really stuck out, I applied without seeing it along with a couple of others, in the end I had a choice between a university doing slightly better on paper or them….
Most people would choose the one that was doing slightly better but not me, I chose the one that my gut said, and was glad I made that decision; they even ended up moving up in the league tables by quite a big jump during my first year.
This is probably one of the most important decisions of someone’s adult life and I just trusted myself and I honestly wouldn’t change it,
Gut Instinct is amazing, don’t fight it, embrace it, it’s not scientific but it just works…
