Each day I get hunches about things that are about to happen. When I am tuned in and listening, I can use this information to help ensure that the day flows better. There are also days when I ignore my hunches, only to regret it later on. This happens in relation to my family and my work.
Every day I speak with different individuals about their career concerns. One of the most interesting things that I hear is how often people knew something was going to happen in their work before it did happened. These include events like the closing of a department, an announcement of reorganization or the firing of a senior leader.
Most of us have strong, accurate “gut feelings” that we ignore. If you are uneasy with a person or a situation, or have a nagging sense that there is “more to the story” than meets the eye, you may be correct. To hone your instinct, don’t turn a deaf ear when it “speaks” to you.
