The more we know a territory through routine the easier it is to slither in and out. Our instincts for timing get better, we know the decisions of the crowds. Ultimately, our pace begets success. We get a better seat on the train or buy the stock before it rises.

Seeing the future and hunting by gut is a practice. It’s like catching the wave when surfing in the ocean; you can either ride the wave of opportunity or miss out completely.

Most people miss opportunities because they don’t develop awareness. Awareness is a 6th sense, the combination of doubt, hunger, and guessing. It can be learned but it’ll never come as natural if you’re not vigilant already.

Luck is great timing. Build a better gut.
