A couple weeks ago Nature Neuroscience released a study about our gut instincts. When they kick in, we may actually be accessing memories we didn’t know we had. Malcolm Gladwell talks about this in his book “Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking.” In the movie “Heat” (above), the characters use it to great effect throughout the story.
When doing follow-up work, it will serve you well to trust your instincts. Whether you’re getting locating information, calling clients, or trying to convince them to come back in, trust your gut about what’s going on. If you sense that something’s amiss or going well, trust it and react accordingly.
If you’re out in the field, your instincts are crucial. Safety is the utmost importance, so listen to what your gut is telling you.
I did. It makes a huge difference in the possibility for success.
