Go With Your Gut Feeling

1 min read

Magnus Walker is an interesting guy. Growing up as a poor kid in Sheffield, England, he was not exactly the likely candidate for fulfilled dreams. Especially when his dream was that of a Porsche enthusiast. But undaunted, he forged through life until events and circumstances led him to success – and the fulfillment of his childhood fantasies.

His is an amazing story of careless abandon, led by his inner gut voice always telling him, “What’s the worst that could happen?”

I personally resonate with Magnus’ story. Especially because I have always lived in a spot where the confluence of my understanding of technology, business, capital, and social forces helped shape my understanding of the future. It hasn’t necessarily always been practical to focus┬ámore about what’s coming in 7 to 10 years than how I am going to pay my bills next month. A head full of knowledge that can hardly even be discussed with 99% of the people around me for lack of understanding isn’t necessarily practical.

But I go with my gut feeling and forge ahead.
