Einstein is often quoted about his belief in daydreaming. For example, he lived his daydreams in music. Many of his ideas reportedly came from daydreaming or his “thought xperiences.” I agree that imagination is more important than just knowing a bunch of facts. As Einstein pointed out, logic can get you from point A to point B, while imagination will take you everywhere. There are indications that other personages appear to have similar perspectives.
- Deepak Chopra: Daydream, imagine, and reflect. t’s the source of infinite creativity.
- Neil Gaiman: You get ideas from daydreaming . . .The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we're doing it.
- Students of scripture may recall the phrase that you are as you think in your heart. That’s daydreaming.
Let 2020 be the year you learn how to daydream effectively (if you don't already do so) and give yourself permission to do it . . .
