I'm a planner, I always have been. I'm also a lists girl, I make lists, lots of lists. It just seems to be in my DNA, I've always done it, nobody taught me how to do it. Nobody taught me how to work through them either ... and so I still have lists. :-)
Planning is what makes me feel safe, or at least it has in the past.
I've had too many things go totally wrong when I have acted on impulse. Having said that, I used the word "impulse" not intuition ... and I do believe there is a very big difference.
The way it has worked for me is that choosing to do something on the spur of the moment without listening to my intuition, is usually when I land in trouble. But I have trouble following my feelings too, since I have had the kind of life that has numbed my senses a bit. So it's a bit of a Catch 22. I want to use my intuition, but I can't tune into it. So I plan.
