Instinct Training

there are ways to train to trust one's instinct. when a write-up looks too detailed, cut it down to size, leave only the interesting bits. in conversation, if a man opens up too much and flirts, it's time to back off and hold off any futher communication. when the leader does not say much about an issue, and one believes it's important, then the best recourse is to wait. often, one's instinct is the no that wants to be said, the pause to one's step, the reconsideration to anything rash, often brought on by extreme emotions like fear, excitement, and sometimes, boredom.
