You & Your Imagination

Episode 2

You & Your Imagination

In this episode, we talk about the importance of your imagination. Think you don’t have it? Think again!

Imagination is key for innovation, creation and inspiration. It’s key for imagining what your life can become, and then finding ways to make it happen. It’s crucial for imagining the kind of world you wish to live in, and then putting your time, resources and energy into realising it.

Yet, so many people think they don’t have it.

I can’t tell you how many adults I’ve encountered over the years who told me they don’t have imagination. Every time I heard it I asked myself, “Can this be true? How is it that they think this way about themselves?”

I’ll also share how a certain little owl came to life through the power of imagination, and the importance of giving children the mental space to imagine and create for themselves. You’ll also hear about a woman who helped shape a different form of education that is still prevalent today, if not more so now than when she began her journey in this field.
