Principle #2: Trust your instincts
Trust your instincts.
If something feels out of whack, it probably is.
Maybe you are inexperienced. Maybe you have people in your organization telling you that they know better, asking you to give some decision or situation more time to correct itself. You’re likely to end up making things worse by trying to wait out a bad situation, major or minor.
If you think something isn’t working correctly, whether it is a hire, a partnership, a business process, idea, product, or campaign, trust your instincts. Your nose led you into business, got you started, and you need to learn to trust your instincts if you are going to be a successful entrepreneurial leader.
You will find that you are right the majority of the time and you will be happy that you trusted yourself and acted quickly on your instincts. You won’t always be right, but you’ll own your decisions, you’ll own your victories and your failures, and your instincts and your business will grow from you exercising leadership.
