Everyday Rules for the Survivalist, #1: Trust Your Instincts

Friday, September 26, 2008

Why would you trust someone else's instincts instead of your own? Has the weatherman/woman really had a consistent record of correct predictions? Not likely. Don't allow yourself to depend on these people who feign expertise because, more often than not, your instincts are more reliable.

FYI - This rule is not limited to meteorlogical judgement. Your instincts can have as broad of an application as you let them. Gazelle often employs this rule in a myriad of interpersonal situations, while I most enjoy this rule's applicability to navigational conundrums.
