Your Weekly Kuhnspiration (February 6, 2012)

Monday, Monday…can we really trust that day? I’m not sure about that, but what I am sure is that rarely do we make a bad decision when we trust our instinct. But sometimes it can be tough to listen to it above the loud din of other people’s influence, logic and emotion.

How well do you listen to your instinct? Sometimes it may result in taking unfamiliar roads or flying solo with no one in the co-pilot seat to support the journey. Now is your chance to pay your instinct the attention it deserves with this week’s creative exercise.

Look back at your journeyand the steps you took in your life – both personally and professionally – to get where you are today.

  • Where in your life did you listen to your instincts and it paid off? Share the stories and honor the act of following your gut.
  • Now take a closer gander at those times in your life when your instinct spoke up loudly but for whatever reason, you chose a different path. Why did you do it and how differently do you imagine life might appear had you trusted your instinct?


  • And just for fun – consider it a bonus or extra credit – picture your instinct, as if it were your best buddy and confidant (which perhaps it should be)…what would it look like? Describe its appearance and personality.

Now go out there and make it a great week and maybe, just maybe, perk up those ears to hear what your instinct is telling YOU on this beautiful Monday morning…

Cheers to finding that daily spark in your life!
