Why don’t I always just trust my gut? Every time I don’t it comes back to bite me in the ass. It’s ridiculous. I started working with someone and knew right off the bat they weren’t happy and it wasn’t going to be a good fit. But for some reason (open schedule, money) I didn’t say no. I just said yes.
I say yes a lot and should probably stop that. But I still haven’t figured out the right way to say “you sound like a nightmare client when all is said and done, so I should pass” or “I’m not sure your company stands a fighting chance, and don’t want to be there when the ship sinks.” All I know is, every time I ignore my gut, I’m mad at myself with in a few minutes of that signed contract.
Trust your gut, it’s smarter than you are. TRUST ME.
