The smartest part of your brain is the intuitive part. It has the
ability to process millions of pieces of information per second and give
you an answer to any question.
Since women are socialized to feel more than men, women usually tend to be
more comfortable using their intuitive instincts as a decision making
tool. Men are socialized to think and analyze more and often don't think
of intuition as a viable source for decision making.
However, most men can relate the intuition through sports. If you listen
to top athletes talk about when they are at their best or "in the
zone," they will describe this experience as sheer awareness ready to
respond in a fraction of a second. They are not thinking about anything.
They are certainly not trying to analyze because that mental process is
too slow during the heat of competition.
Bottom line for both men and women is that you can't do anything

your awareness, often totally unrelated to whatever you are doing at the
If you ask yourself "who does it feel like it is time to talk to now" and
a name pops into your head, call them. Often the response you will get is
that they were thinking about you!
Or, the next time you are in an interview and you get the feeling you
should ask a certain question, ask it. Often that will be a high point in
the interview and you will find that your client will have a whole new
level of respect for you from that point on.
Your intuition is like a mega computer sitting there between your
shoulders waiting for you to give it something to do. Take the two
questions I have given you and try them out a few times each day. You may
find this approach to be a lot of fun and highly profitable.
You may find that you will stumble into things you would have never
thought of or figured out. Those are my favorites.
