4 Steps to Double Check Your Gut

  1. Recognize your decision-making style. Think about how you made decisions in the past, what role did intuition play?
  2. Pay attention to the first option that comes to mind. Research says first impulses are usually the best.
  3. Keep in touch with your intuition as you move ahead. As you work out processes, check in with your gut (for the small decisions as well as the large ones).
  4. Filter out strong emotions. Try to make decisions from a neutral, clear  place.
