All of us need to pay attention to our instincts. So often what we think is a good choice may indeed be the right choice.
Such a decision may not be deliberative, but it was the right call. And I think the lesson for leaders is that we need to trust ourselves to make the right call in the moment.
On the other hand, spur-of-the-moment decisions can be disastrous. Deciding to buy a house you cannot afford, quitting your job because you are mad, or marrying a partner after a first date may not be sound decisions. They may work out, but chances are they will not.
Your inner voice no doubt will point you in the right direction.
