The best kind of conversation is that which may be called thinking aloud.

-William Hazlett


It is time to date your hunch – take it to lunch. Wine and dine it. Listen to it and woo it. If you have more than one hunch, take them all to lunch, together or separately – it all depends on you. If some hunches are disappointing, it doesn’t matter. It will not be the first time a hunch date was less satisfying than anticipated. Another hunch at another time will stimulate you to create.

“The date with your hunch involves passion, endurance and commitment. It is a journey that leads to self-discovery, an awareness of sounds and the silence of the mind emptied of judgment and then filled differently.” (HAVE YOU EVER HAD A HUNCH? The Importance of Creative Thinking) The ingredients for this lunch reside within you:



One fresh Hunch

Two cups of Intelligence

Two cups of Talent

Three cups of Daring

Four Cups of Expertise.

Active Ingredients:

imagination, persistence,

commitment, purpose,

enthusiasm, humor.

Stir the above together and allow it to simmer for the rest of your life. Don’t forget to add a dash of luck.

So take your hunch to lunch today, and you never know, one day it might take you…
