This one really hit home. How many times have you questioned why you did something or why you did not? Was it to please someone else or because there were outside influences that made you take a certain path that you second-guessed in the aftermath? We have all been in similar circumstances. Usually, we reflect with, “I should have trusted my gut.”
Especially over the past two tumultuous years, many of us have deeply evaluated some elements of our lives and careers. This introspection has prompted many people and companies to refocus and reprioritize. You may be going through a similar exercise, either personally, professionally, or as a group exercise in your organization. It is important to realize that you indeed have the skills, knowledge, and maturity to make significant, impactful changes where warranted. Take a deep breath and trust your gut!
