That’s the point. If you could evidence it, then it wouldn’t be an inkling. It’d be a fact, or at least a strong hypothesis.
Many organisations only want to act on facts. They ask their people to prove their inklings; to make a head-space thing out of an inner knowing.
They can’t do that of course because inklings aren’t facts. Not today. Tomorrow maybe, but not today. And so the opportunity is lost.
Inklings are valuable. They point to the future. Some of them do anyway. So you need to know which ones. In fact, you need inklings about inklings. That’s if you want to lead the field anyway.
The question is…
Are you brave enough to back an inkling?
Like Steve Jobs with the iPhone.
Oh and how strong is your inkling muscle?
What do you think? Can you prove an inkling?
