Imagination

We’ve probably all heard Albert Einstein’s thought that, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” But have you heard why he thinks this is so?

This is Einstein’s follow up thought, and one I love, “For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” Think of that! We have the power to imagine all that may ever be! I think in this statement, Einstein unlocks a true key to genius- IMAGINATION.

Think of the things we have IMAGINED before they came to be KNOWN. People dreamed of flying long before they could. Even Walt Disney dreamed up ‘Man in Space’ before Yuri Gagarin’s maiden space exploration. It’s pretty inspiring to think that all that is out there, has the ability to be dreamed up within the creative-self.

Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to imagine today. Try to reflect on something that you have never thought before. It does take time and patience to actually think and dream, but the payoff is big.
