I want to talk about timing. People time the market, trends , etc. But the kind of timing I want to talk about is the sense we get that it’s time to make a change or act on something we’ve been thinking about. It’s all about an individual sense of timing not the world at large.
People who have made huge impact on the market or business or with a discovery or invention all came from their inner sense of timing. In fact, they probably never thought of it as timing. It just seemed like the right thing to do and it came about when it came about.
Now I see entrepreneurs trying to figure timing out for their app or invention or business. Again, it’s paying attention to what your gut says to do. I know a couple of women who are day traders and, again, they have a sense of trends and when to buy, when to sell and they are very good at it. They have developed a sense of timing and they trust themselves.
It’s not an intellectual thing, although it may start that way, it is developed inner sense. Thats the way we do life best. An inner developed in intuitive sense.
There’s that word - intuition. In fact intuition is the highest form of thinking. It is a very complex and sophisticated ability we all have. It enfolds an enormous amount of information on many levels and it delivers to us a very simple sentence which is something like - “Go for it”, “Don’t do it”. “Talk to that person.” “Go that way.” “Take a right.” “Stay away from that.”
You get the idea. There are no explanations given. No involved statements. It just is and you can feel it’s right on target. And, if you are smart you act on it.
When we have important decisions to make it's the place to go. No lists of pros and cons. They never work. The mind is an incredible computer with enormous amounts of information stored which it can pull out to present a case either way and which are sometimes diametrically opposed. It’s not a reliable tool for making decisions that will have lasting impact.
Yes, you can trust your intuition. Test it out. Learn the difference between intuition and a passing thought.
Best to you,
