A lot of times, people tend to do things without thinking. Without evaluating the odds and risks involved. They go with their instincts and gut feelings, taking their cue from business luminaries who repeatedly advocate ‘trusting your gut’ in speeches and talks. Evidently, given their successes, that is not incorrect. However, as much as trusting your intuition is important, you need to do some prep work beforehand. You need to do the assessment, research and leg work. Have the necessary knowledge or at least, find the people who does and work with them. It is not about not believing or trusting in yourself, rather much so that you want to increase the odds of making it a reality thereby also placing an importance on having the required knowledge or expertise.
