In his recent blog post, Philip Humbert speaks of the volumes of data and information to which the world today is exposed. Great leaders don’t need more information he writes, they “need filters to cut through the clutter, identify the KEY piece in a world of random data, and take action.” He believes that human beings already have his ability, something that Malcolm Gladwell, in his book Blink, calls “thin slicing.” It is what the world calls intuition or instinct. Humbert suggests that to be successful, “In the 21st century, peak performers will understand and hone this skill to a razor’s edge.” … by seeing the invisible and sensing the truth.
Robert Graves wrote: “Intuition is the supra-logic that cuts out all the routine processes of thought and leaps straight from the problem to the answer.” Albert Einstein told us: “The only real valuable this is intuition.” Holbrook Jackson wrote: “Intuition is reason in a hurry.” Jonas Salk said: “Intuition will tell the thinking mind where to look next.” And Deepak Chopra tells us: “Our intuition eavesdrops on the mind of the universe, giving us access to the infinite source of possibilities.”
Great leaders have that beautiful and precious gift within them. It is that inner voice that unlocks treasures yet dreamed. Listen to its magical voice. As Mahatma Ghandi wrote: “Everyone who will can hear the inner voice. It is within everyone.” Listen to yours … see the invisible, know the truth and change the world.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
