Trust Your Instincts!
This is potentially lethal piece of advice. And yet, for me, it seperates the wannabes from the gonnabes. Perhaps, in the end, it is the difference between an attentive eternal lieutanant and the pirate captain who comes to won the ship.
You are not attempting to be a manager, or even a businessman. You are concerned with the getting of money. You must go with your gut. After that, the managers and the bean counters and financial advisors can take over. But only afterwards.
Trust your instincts. Avoid being a slave to them, but when those instincts are screaming Go! Go! Go! it is time for you to decide whether you really wish to be rich or not. You cannot do this in deliberate, considered manner. You cannot get rich painting by numbers. You can achieve it only as a lone predator: by out-waiting rivals; by remaining alert, constantly sniffing the air; by bringing murderous force to bear upon your prey.
And to do so without consulting anyone or anything but the secret servant of your compulsion.
Share the kill later, by all means. But if you want to get rich, trust your judgement when it calls - and leave those whos job it is to manage your business to pick up the pieces They can have the lesser quality bits.
But the heart and liver are yours!
