Monday Musings – Intuition

It always seems a bit odd to talk about intuition in relation to crypto.

When we discuss crypto, we are talking about the blockchain, technology that is extremely advanced and is changing the world, but at the same time bringing it back to that most human of things, gut feeling.

What I do know is that every time I have ignored that feeling, the little voice that says “don’t do it” or that feeling in the pit of my stomach, it has had some sort of a negative consequence for me.

And when I have listened to that intuitive little voice, I may not have been able to immediately see the benefit of that decision, but it has served me well in the long run.

The thing is, at the time you may not be able to articulate what you are feeling. Your intuitive voice will probably go against all logic and reason. Your brain will probably be going WTF!!

As an example, a few years ago I was offered the opportunity to get involved in a crypto platform that was performing very well for a good while. There was no logical reason to not go all in. The numbers stacked up, all my research said it was sound.

But that voice, that feeling….

In the end I didn’t get involved. And it performed very well for a year and I did wonder if I had made a mistake as many people had made a lot of money from it.

However, it has now not paid out its members for a long time. And I’m very happy that I didn’t get involved and bring others into it.

But there was no sound reason not to at the time. Just a niggling feeling that wouldn’t go away.

Modern life is doing its best to separate us from this most human of senses.

I know many felt this about various narratives and medical procedures over the last few years.

But despite the overwhelming narrative on the media and government and pressure from family and friends, stood their ground because of THAT feeling.

And that feeling is now being borne out by facts that are surfacing in ever increasing quantities.

I guess what I really want to say is that your brain is a wonderful tool, but it doesn’t have all the answers.

The way forward is to listen to your heart.
