The Signal

Have you ever disregarded the uneasy feeling that is trying to tell you that something is wrong?

I have. And when the event that the feeling was warning of comes to pass, I've often vowed never again to make that mistake.

But then the schedule gets packed, deadlines loom, and it seems only wise to brush aside featherweight concerns. After all, larger issues beckon.

One solution: Before concluding any major decision, ask yourself if there has been any sense of unease, no matter how small. If so, fashion an approach that would reduce or eliminate that concern.

Later, when the results are in, consider if the minor change made a difference. I predict that in many instances, it will have made a big difference.
