Hey guys, trust your gut. Silicon Valley’s big on intuition
If it doesn’t feel right, or taste right, it’s probably not going to work out, ya know?
Don’t want to look like a fool working in an industry and you don’t know what you should, right?
Finally, listen to wise friends/colleagues/the experts.
Why repeat people’s mistakes in the past? Learn from those who tried and failed/succeeded/some degree therein…
I hate whenever I get this advice. Nearly every blog, book, magazine, podcast, speaker’s event for startups offers advice along these lines in one form or another. They’ve basically described every avenue for which anyone can possibly make a decision except through divine insight.
It’s sound advice. You really should trust your gut, do your homework, and crowdsource with smart/wise people whenever you’re doing a major venture. While we’re on it, you should also exercise more, eat less carbs, quit smoking! Be smart with money, don’t cheat on your spouse, read more, think more, do more and stop being so wasteful.
The true issue is that this advice does not explain implementation or reasoning. Why listen to your intuition? Why is it important to do research? and why/how do you decide whose counsel to heed? THAT’S the stuff I want to hear more about. Anyone can look at you and say “hey, lose some weight!” …….but what’s the plan?
