Imagination is more important than knowledge. Albert Einstein
In my blog yesterday I talked about Self-Awareness being one of those gifts we have been endowed with and makes us so unique as human beings. Today, let’s look at another important human quality or gift that is so unique to all human beings, Imagination.
The ability to imagine things pervades our entire existence. It influences everything we do, think about, and create. It leads to elaborate theories, dreams, and inventions in any profession and in any endeavor.
AND one of the ways we can activate our imagination, is being Insatiably Curious! This is just a second nature to artist, actors, writers, and thinkers, they Observe, they get curious about people, ideas, nature and simply slow down to take in what is right in front of them. And out of these observations they begin to imagine and create some of the greatest works of literature, art, plays, inventions, and theories once unimaginable.
I know for myself, travelling, seeing new places and experiencing first-hand the incredible beauty of our National Parks, is jaw dropping and deeply moving. Just this week my wife Chris and I have experienced the beauty of Zion Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and the Grand Canyon. It has once again just opened my mind to new possibilities, new learning, thinking and just how lucky we are to live in this Country!
Every time I pick up a book and read, it activates my ability to Imagine way beyond what ever I thought possible. I always pick up a new idea, a different perspective or dreaming bigger dreams! You have heard Chet rant on and on about reading, writing, developing better questions for yourself and others and through this process Being Insatiably Curious about you and others. When you start building this kind of thinking and process into your lives, you will begin to understand that other Big Rant Chet speaks of, DREAM and DO….. DREAM and DO
- What are you becoming insatiably curious about?
- When was the last time you sat down and simply started writing what you really want out of life more than anything?
- What are your big dreams!
- What do you want to change in your life that is holding you back?
