If I date the wrong person, I’m to blame. I’m the full-on sucka! I have 6 senses to help me navigate all this shit. SIX! If I can’t make a “should I stay or should I go” decision with 6 senses stabbing me in the face all the time, I’m a complete moron!
I can’t possibly claim that I didn’t “suspect” something was wrong. C’mon; I have 6 super-powers at my disposal. I’m a bad-ass! But I ignore some of them ’cause I’m in love or at least in lust or I’m lonely or I’m bored or I’m afraid of being by myself. It’s this lack of using my super-powers that makes me deaf, dumb and blind.
Many of my relationships went bad long after they should have been let go. That’s my fault! All the heartache, finger-pointing and blaming is my fault!
I wanna be smarter!
Intuition. We make gut decisions in our businesses and in our personal lives all the time. Sometimes we have good data to back up a business decision and we double-check it with our intuition. Hiring the right person or firing the wrong person. Sometimes, after many dates, our intuition tells us to dig for more data. And we either dig deeper: smart. Or we don’t: dumb.
Most business owners I know are dating or divorced. Yes, some are married, but that’s still-to-be-decided middle-ground – too late to get out and too soon to tell what the real damage is gonna be. On the other hand, the business owners I know who have kick-ass marriages take full advantage of all 6 super-power senses.
We now have multiple platforms in our lives that require using all 6 senses: dating, marriage, divorce and business. They’re all intertwined. When one platform crashes they all crash. When one platform rises they all rise!
Acknowledge and use all six senses, all the time, across all platforms. And share the “should I stay or should I go” process with those that are closely involved with the success of your platforms. Your children care about your success. Family members care. Co-founders care. Friends care. Employees care. Customers care. Investors care. Vendors care. Peeps you’re dating care (or you’ll find out if they don’t).
You care. Use every super-power sense at your disposal for success on every platform.
