Going by the instinct or gut is indispensable for making a right decision, specially when decision involves going down the well trodden path or taking the ‘less traveled’ one.
No one has elaborated this more, than Steve Jobs, who lived what he preached.
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.
So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something–your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.
This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
