Every now and then you are faced with a situation that requires a leap of faith; moments in which what you actually know is not enough to make a rational decision.
What do you do on such situations?
I admit it: I am a control freak. I like to know everything that's happening around me; have a conscious understanding on every little variable. Information overload is the water I swim in. Yet I'm fully aware this is not always possible, as a matter of fact in most domestic and work situations there are blanks in information. Under most scenarios this blanks are easy to cope with; it is information you don't need to make the smart choice.
As facts grow dim, uncertainty kicks in and intuition starts to take an increasingly predominant role. Intuition is the way our mind plays "fill in the gaps"; replacing facts with speculations. Our our consciousness needs something similar to a complete picture to take a decision. When the real stuff isn't there we just make it up, if what you make up comes close to the real thing you are an intuitive person.
Sometimes you have to just disregard advice and common sense and take a step towards the void. Those are the moments worth living for, the turning points. In occasions they pay off; and even when they don't the ride is usually fun.
Do you trust your gut?
