If you’re blessed with imagination, it’s part of your job to bring better images to the world.*
Imagination is like a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger and more expansive it becomes.
We’re helped to forget at a young age that we all have imaginations – you may have noticed that it isn’t taught in school.
If you can create a picture in your mind you have imagination. In fact, it likely that you use it hundreds of times a day for everyday things, l such as going shopping (what picture just flashed into your mind?).
It just needs to be used for more than the everyday. A good place to begin is with your curiosity. Notice it, wander around it, wander wherever it leads …
Before you know it, you’re a recovering unimaginative.
