A life mission is:

Two Sentences

Written by Julie Jordan Scott

Two sentences from 1977.

The one single, specific memory I have fromrepparttar ninth grade was during a math class. We were being introduced to Geometry forrepparttar 124017 first time. The teacher whose name I can surprisingly not remember, asked "What is intuition?"

I raised my hand (an unusual act for me at 15 years old) and said, "It is having a hunch: sort of knowing or having an idea of something out ofrepparttar 124018 blue, like without really knowing you somehow know."

In my mind's eyerepparttar 124019 picture is crystal clear. Howrepparttar 124020 teacher was poised, what his sport coat looked like, where inrepparttar 124021 room he was standing, how his head was turned just so. I think his name might have been Mr. Tennaro. I was in his class for one week.

Yet that question and answer still calls out to me more than twenty years later. Forever caught in freeze frame across three thousand miles and countless other classrooms and a huge number of hours and moments and conversations. Intuition. An inkling.

Sharon Franquemont, former professor of Intuition at John F. Kennedy University and author of "You Already Know What to Do" makes an important distinction. Rather than using intuition as one of many tools for living, she suggests that one choose to makerepparttar 124022 practice of intuition a way of living everyday.

Some think, "That is all well and good and I know for a fact I have no clue how to live intuitively. I don't even know for sure if I believe in intuition inrepparttar 124023 first place." Before we discuss that, lets point to some very interesting illustrations.

It may be surprising to learn that some of history's greatest thinkers believed an intuitive lifestyle was very beneficial. Albert Einstein said, "The only real valuable thing is intuition."

Intuition is not just "women's intuition" and it is not only for what might be called "artsy" people. For centuries inventors, entrepreneurs, engineers, parents, children and yes, artists, have all experienced intuitive flashes. These inklings sometimes lead to something big. A positive growth situation beyond our usual way of thinking or being.
