Imagination – 5 of 10 Einstein Life Hacks

In 1971 John Lennon captivated us with his hit, Imagine.  And while I don’t share his view of imagining that there is no heaven, I do love his vision of the world being able to some day live as one.  Clearly he didn’t live to see that, but the Imagine Peace foundation run by his widow Yoko Ono is having a significant impact.   He left a legacy, based on his imagination.

Einstein said that “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

Imagination is way more than just dreaming.

I would add that without imagination, you can’t connect the dots that we talked about in my first post in this series.  By its vary nature, connecting the dots is an exercise in seeing the unseen (aka using your imagination).  
The spiritual view of imagination is faith, as faith is believing what you can’t see.  
If you can imagine it, you can figure out a way to make it happen (or at least to make a movie about it or write a book about it or paint a picture about it).

What are you imagining?
