Go with your gut.

You may not be able to explain some of the decisions you make; all you may be able to say is, “It feels right.” This is because the language center of your brain is separated from the feelings center, making it difficult to verbalize emotions. You may be able to rationalize your decisions, of course, but sometimes the only reason behind your decision is your gut feeling.

Research indicates that decisions based on gut feelings are made faster and of higher quality than those decisions you spend hours and hours thinking about.


  1. When something “feels right,” do it.
    Don’t spend hours and hours thinking about a decision if you know it’s the right one. Follow your gut feeling—you don’t always have to rationalize your decisions.
