Why Is Imagination Important?

Definitely believe that imagination is a source of fire for great ideas.

Doug Does Life

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere. ~Carl Sagan

Challenges require imagination

Whether we realize it at the time or not, imagination is used when we’re confronted with challenges.

A situation presents itself, we visualize what the different paths and outcomes will be and make a choice.

This process happens automatically and isn’t usually called imagination… but it is.

Our brain plays through scenarios and reviews outcomes, which then leads to a conscious choice being made.

Our brains practice visualization all the time, but we aren’t always aware it’s going on.

Visualization is natural and beneficial

Our brains use visualization all the time to solve problems and overcome challenges. This skill can be developed and actively used by anyone. Thinking about a problem beforehand and visualizing the exact results you desire make it more likely that result will be achieved.
