In a way I am a lucky guy for I have an interesting trite in me; its job is to look out for crazy, wonderful and extreme characters around me. Every day, I enjoy some of my free time visiting different new places in and near the city to talk with folks. Sometimes, I meet some economical type too, who likes to save soap, water and stinking smell. It is part of urban life. However, these interactions instigate me to identify interesting personalities as well as topics from people for me, for my readers (when I write) and listeners (when I speak).

Not all the time I find interesting people with a sense of curiosity. Sometimes, I find iconic characters with tenacious pursuit. But they are not man-enough suiting to what I look for. I look for an ordinary man exhibiting pinnacle of boldness in hideous circumstances doing extraordinary things. I am interested in those characters. But I seldom find him. I am searching for go-getters but finding goat-getters. What I mean is, everybody grow-up from being nobody to somebody. It did not come to us; we created it from intuition, positive instincts, insight, patience, blind luck and hard-work.

Once, I asked a known maverick “What are your uniquely inherent interests by being born as a Human being?”

He said, “Mmm, Hmm, well, I do not know about others but I have uncanny ability to sit lonely in isolation all through the evening.”

I said “you do not need uncanny ability to sit lonely in isolation. And how long you can sit out there and enjoy, as you are in a kind of world full of every day’s societal activities and every hour human interactions? Will it be possible for you?”

He said, “yes, all the time and all through the evening once office hours are over.”

He also went on added “Prasad sir, I eat home-cooked food, drink gallons of back-yard purified groundwater to stay myself hydrated and enjoy privacy. I don’t eat and drink outside sperm-killing junk-food, which are chemically sterilized. And also listen, I make love twice a day, one in the morning before going to the office and one in late night to keep my systems and prostate health.”

I reckoned “O boy, this guy is one person who would make a perfect stranger. He imparted me a life-long lesson and I had it coming when I am 67 years old. Some individuals are lucky enough to live off the fat of the land and exist in a cinematic landscape. These sorts of people are nature’s disagreeable blunders. This man is full of the joy of almost living to enjoy.”  And then I walked out on him.

One way, through these acts of interviews and interactions, I am empowering to expand my understanding abilities of human cognitive capacities and also follies of wasting their lives. How Human reflections are established and escalated to the increased levels in the processing of information capacities. This does not end there. It allows me to broadly classify further how human beings construct larger, more complex, and highly variable behavioural units in a variety of behavioural domains.  

Logistically speaking, typical answers refer too many for my above-asked question. What I mean is when we plan and organize our way of life carefully, we have some set or live-objectives in a lifetime such as owning a home, good career or generate the largest income over one’s lifetime or becoming importantly someone.

It differs from person to person.  Of course, some follow prosperous individual’s success path, while few individuals thriftily share credit from other’s success and fewer are so fond of hard-luck they run halfway down the road to meet it, they miss it narrowly. Unlucky ones work hard so much to make both ends meeting but something somewhere breaks in between. First mentioned few are sort of takeaways as bad as stealing a poor man’s vacation. The last two examples are bad-luckers. 

I believe that we should achieve many intended goals before we demise. Many orientations suggest “time” is important. But my question is without “we”, where is our time? The importance is “we, our time and our future achievements before you die”

I knew a few guys, who can be happy reading obituary notices to cheer themselves up for being outlived many died.  But what is the use of the life they are living? (as I cited above maverick example)

You only can create “your time” and “a bright future for you” despite dynamic dimensional surroundings. When I said “you”, it is your psyche, the internal ominous one within oneself.

And at random our gut feeling works a lot. From a clinical and practical perspective, interestingly it is justified that the wisdom lies within us gives an expression of ‘go with our gut’ feeling. This, in turn, corresponds to a widely established conception, which states that ‘listening’ to inner voices and try to do what we love may be helpful. Be it in corporate offices or Research Labs or for that matter in any department of Industry, this flow of line bound to happen knowingly or unknowingly but we never observe the pattern consciously.

During my consultancy practising years, I studied many successful professionals’ epistemological, psychological, cerebral and phenomenological capacities in effective decision-making at different stages irrespective of stress and duress.

After all, all decisions are directed mostly to problem-solving, saving time, improve productivity and seeking to register progress in each employee’s performance. Eventually, it is juxtaposed to weigh the benefit of advantage between cautious utilization of organisational resources versus output yielded from each employee per hour in working business hours.

Despite the lack of long deliberation, the decisions and their judgmental outcomes are often smart and satisfactory. In other words, leaders or managers or professionals at the helm of the affairs know what is right but seldom have they failed to explain why and how. I call it “inner flow or gut feeling. The inner flow is an amalgamation of primary intuition, later are instincts and insight. Since researchers investigate decision-making and judgement, there has been a fascination for the topic of intuition.

In definition, intuition is tacit sense by which one can get aware of what one already knows. Intuition allows people to get access to pre-existing knowledge and by which a person can see the bigger picture and strives for new possibilities in what is objectively given.

So, Intuition is the immediate path-finding compass in us that automatically operates as soon as no other psychological function can find a way out of complex situations. Entrepreneurs, leaders and hierarchical managers need to know about intuition far better than they know.  

In modern business, intuition and cognitive psychology have become prominent algorithms to deal with everyday business complexities, so intuition has become a specific product with which puzzle pieces are quickly put together and foresee the futuristic problems.  More than this, intuition can suggest solutions for futuristic problems well in advance.

In the beginning, I have mentioned human abilities in information processing. I would like to give clarity here. Intuitions speed up information processes to operate fast and associate unconsciously. To simply the multifaceted matter, our prior experiences and our mental representations of solutions build the basis for intuitive judgments and decisions. This system or manifestation appears that intuitive judgments are related to prior learning experiences and arise through unconscious holistic spreading processes. Intuitions are typically described with the phenomenon of knowing something without knowing how.

The most influential physicists Newton and Einstein agreed that one trait was at the heart of their success: intuition.

The mobile device serves as a longstanding testament to Steve Job’s success was intuitive nature. In his self-titled biography, Jobs touted the power of intuition and described its impact on his work at the helm of Apple. “Intuition is a very powerful thing,” he told writer Walter Isaacson, “more powerful than intellect.”

In 2005 Stanford University speech, Jobs again credited his intuitive mind as having a significant impact on his work. “You have to trust in something,” he said. “Your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.”

One would assume that Einstein favoured logic over intuition, but the reverse is true. Einstein is widely quoted as saying, “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.”

The objection to Einstein’s ground-breaking theory of relativity in the 1920s was unprecedented and extremely fierce, but the physicist followed his instinct and stood by his work. Einstein’s general theory of relativity is now renowned as a pinnacle of modern-day physics.

All great achievements of science must start from intuitive knowledge. Einstein once told a friend, according to Psychology Today. “At times I feel certain I am right while not knowing the reason.”

In my journey, I had followed my intuition, instincts and insight a great deal. Many a time I succeeded and a few times, I failed. But important is human life is worthwhile to try hard, hard and hard.

I forget. Before I close, I must say a recalled reminiscence of another peculiar character. When I pose the same question “What are your uniquely inherent interests by being born as a Human being?”

He said, “I am planning to revive a circus as I am tired of being so damned happy”.

Forget being one of the said fools; achieve something unique out of your intuition, instincts and insight to tell your kids your inspiring story.
