Acting completely based on assumptions which may or may not be right can lead you into mistakes that can cost you more than you can imagine but it doesn’t mean that you should ignore clues, hints, insinuations, signs and tips.
After all, “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck”.
Clues can help you simplify your process, hints will show you where to concentrate, insinuations can make you think outside the box, signs will notify you of what to expect ahead of time and tips are important nuggets that can guide you.
As important as they are, they are fragments or bits of a bigger picture.
With each that you have found, trace how much more you can find.
Getting to know someone better, having a better grip of your health or trying to understand the dynamics of a new market or business idea will require that you take nothing for granted.
Ask questions where you need to, observe further when you have to and conduct a verification if it is important but don’t ignore your clues, hints, insinuations, signs and tips.
It is important in relationships, health and business as you’ll achieve better results and increase productivity when you leave no stone unturned.
