Use your gut
Have you ever had that experience where you woke up and realized that you needed to make a change?
Something was off. Something wasn't working. Something wasn't right.
It had to change.
Maybe it's a new product launch, or a campaign, or a JV partnership, or something in your personal life, like an eating habit or a drinking habit or a Netflix binge-watching habit, or whatever.
Think back on a couple of situations like that in your life.
How many times did you actually know that in your gut way early, and you just ignored it?
My bet would be that most of the time you knew.
Your gut already knew, but your mind convinced you otherwise.
"No, it's fine. It's not quite working, but it's not that bad, either."
So you kept going.
Trust that gut.
Listen to it.
Ask other people for their gut check on it.
If you're on a team, volunteer your gut check to the others.
"Hey, I'm having a weird feeling about this, do you feel the same?"
It'll save you time and money.
What's something your gut has been telling you for a while you need to change, but you've been ignoring?
