The only real valuable thing is intuition.

Albert Einstein

There are tools in life that are extremely helpful in keeping you from falling into traps that will slow you down on your road to success.  Some traps can even derail you altogether.

Use all the tools you have available.  Education is one of those.  Common sense is another. Experience will serve you as well. All those things combined work together to help that little inner voice called ‘intuition’ give you directions. Sometimes you may not know why that little voice is saying ‘don’t do this!’ but pay attention anyway.

Intuition is the single most important tool you have to keep you on the winning side. Nurture it.  Protect it.

Do you know the difference between education and experience? Education is when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don’t.
Pete Seeger

This is a very astute way of saying “know what you’re getting yourself into“. Learn all you can from others who have been there. Study the pitfalls that may be hidden behind a glossy exterior. If you do this, you will have educated yourself. It’s that education that will help determine what your experience will be like. The better educated you are, the more enjoyable your experience is likely to be.
