Intuition At Work

Making Confident Decisions

One of the most overlooked advantages we have as a human is intuition

Do you constantly fret about whether you’re making a good decision?

What if you’re wrong?

How badly can shit go sideways if you make a terrible decision? Can someone die as a result?

Fortunately, many of us aren’t in the position to make life/death decisions. 

It’s estimated the average adult makes about 35,000 remotely conscious decisions each day. Each decision carries certain consequences with it – both good and bad.

 

As a result, some of us find ourselves:

  • in analysis paralysis
  • gathering more information before we feel confident to move forward with a decision, or
  • running several simulations before we’re comfortable with the odds 

How much info gathering, simulation running, or weighing the pros and cons depends on the confidence level of the person and looming deadlines before them.

A daunting method to be sure.

So how do we find the courage to step up and commit to a decision?

One of the most overlooked advantages we have as a human is intuition.

Intuition is the ability to understand something without the need for conscious reasoning. And the reason it’s overlooked is that it was —and still is — discouraged from a young age.

Your Intuition Is Your Compass

How Intuition Shows Itself

Ninety-Five percent (95%) of our decisions come from our subconscious.

Intuition —often called sixth sense— lives in all of us. We embody intuition. Intuition is subtle and communicates differently for everyone.

Every person on the planet has intuition, but not every person chooses to listen to it. Intuition is a brilliant thing. Intuition is the way the subconscious mind communicates with the conscious mind.

So it’s fair to say that your intuition is a compass. It’s a powerful guide that shows you the way. A profound and practical way for you to connect with your higher self.

As I said, we all have it. 

  • Have you ever thought of someone and out of the blue, they call you?
  • Perhaps you get lucky when you’re driving and don’t need directions because you intuitively know where to turn. A thought bubble pop in your head that says, “turn left.”
  • Have you ever heard someone say, “I dunno… it just doesn’t feel right.

All of those little signs are your intuition speaking to you. And it wants you to listen.

How does intuition differ from instincts?

More often than not, intuition is confused with instincts, which is confused with ego. 

Wait! What?

Yep. Briefly, 3 facets of our human behavior appear like this:

  • Instincts – look for threats. When you’re walking down an alley, and you get chills down your spine, it’s instinct.
  • Intuition – looks for the next right step. When you find yourself in a fortuitous situation, you can thank your intuition.
  • Ego – looks for ways to discriminate. When your inner voice starts talking smack about your self-worth or the person standing next to you, it’s your ego. Ego is pessimistic, judges, and has delusions of grandeur. Ego talks crap about scarcity and feels justified in making bad decisions.

Sidenote: Ego can show up when you feel lonely, cold, hungry, tired, fearful, or angry. When that happens to me, I reassess, readdress, and take care of my needs. Because no one wants Hangry Lisa hanging about. 🤪

I believe it’s our intuition that gives facts color and dimension.

Using Intuition To Make Decisions

Can we use intuition to make better decisions? 

But of course! Like many tools already in your toolbox, such as software on your laptop, intuition is also a tool.

Your body is the hardware, and intuition is the cloud computing software within reach at any time. Available day and night —if you desire access.

As I mentioned, we face thousands of options each day. Many of those choices include pieces of information accepted as true.

For instance: 32°F freezes water. That’s a fact.

But what if you want to skate on that frozen water?

How thick must the frozen water be before we find the courage to edge out into the middle of the pond? And have the confidence to enjoy ourselves gliding into figure eights like a pro?

Typically, we work only with facts to make decisions. 

I see facts as black and white. One dimensional.

Relying on facts leaves us with a certain amount of ambiguity. My question is: How much ambiguity are you comfortable with?

I believe it’s our intuition that gives facts color and dimension. Intuition shortens the gap of ambiguity.

Combining both facts and intuition increases trust in ourselves: Trust, certainty, and the courage to keep leaning in. Leaning into our answers with confidence.

 

This is how the 3 facets of human behavior appear:

  • Ego might jump onto the ice without another thought.
  • Instinct warns us that we must check the thickness, soft spots, cracks, holes, and edges before daring an attempt.
  • Intuition informs us that the ice is too thin.

Whichever way we lean, we can rest easy that the choice we made for skating on that pond was the right one.

In life and in work, when you’re confronted with the metaphorical frozen pond, consider applying your intuition to the situation. And feel confident that you are making the right choice.

Have you leaned into your intuition to make a decision? 

Stay magickal!
