What about that gut feeling?
Gut feeling, instinct, intuition ... do you systematically discard them or do you pay attention?
I remember a time, several years ago when I was stacking pavers on a table on the patio that I was paving. At some point I heard a little voice that said "This may not be a good idea".
I kept doing it until ... the table tilted over and the pavers came crashing down, slitting open my big toe and second toe.
That was a powerful (and painful) lesson. I do listen now. :-)
