As business owners, managers or general practitioners, if intuition or gut feelings come into play when is it a good idea to listen?
Today, especially so near to Halloween and with all things paranormal on the air waves, one may wonder if intuition and gut feelings are, in fact, a type of clairvoyance we perhaps all share. Throughout recorded history, many families shared a sage as a familial adviser. These were oftentimes, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts or uncles who featured a well-spring of wise advice and intuition.
Where they actually clairvoyants? Or, where they religiously driven with divine intervention by the Holy Ghost? Better yet, were their gifts and talents in "knowing" the answers of the future and past, driven more squarely by an amalgamation of experience?
Everyone has their own interpretations of the more paranormal or a “supranormal” aspect of divination, but it is a skill set every business owner aspires to have. If a business leader knows intuitively where their industry is going, how a potential teammate will pan out, where to look for pitfalls in business associations, and what to aspire to - then they are leaps and bounds ahead of their competition.
But where do inspiration, intuition, gut feelings and clairvoyance come from?
Sagacity, the quick inner perception and/or instinctive feeling about people derived from unknown internal processes, remain relatively unknown to the conscious mind. However, many people in business often state they are driven by insights they cannot ascribe to a defined source. Often a ball of fire, ability to perceive future success is shared in conversation - an unknown drive toward a visionary result. And, usually if "they" don't have intuition or foresight or good gut feelings they hire someone who does because business professionals know gut reactions to people and events often defy reason, but lend an empathic accuracy resulting in decision-making excellence.
Some suggest inspiration is divinely driven, from God to individuals who live good lives. Others suggest intuition is an amass of time and cellular level historical archives some have capability to tap into, to read and apply in their lives. Others suggest gut feelings are directly correlative to common sense living and an ability to view circumstances and find solutions based on those common sense viewpoints. Some say it is clairvoyant activity that defies science fact.
Wherever inspiration or intuition comes from, they are decent talents to add to a business arsenal.
How does this relate to business practices, expressly Washington DC Government business practices?
A good intuitive thinker is of dramatic importance to business. Especially, relative to business development practices, it is often a business developer who provides solid gut feelings toward impending prospects and solutions, this is especially important in Washington DC for federal sector personnel. Everyone knows understanding the semantics of a process is never quite as successful as having a gut-level feel for a winning solution and its execution.
In finances, too, it is often felt the individual who can project earnings and market changes is a sought after asset. While in all business matters, good planning and preparation, market strategy and study as well as networking and industry prowess does drive successful results - that good old gut feeling drives the ball outta the park. . .

Quote: "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." Steve Jobs (1955 - 2011)
