Principles of Imagination

Fuel, Freedom and Flexibility

FUEL

Fuel is the energy for your imagination. So:

fuel
  • spot links between things
  • make connections
  • breakout of mental patterns
  • be sensitive to your surroundings
  • pay attention
FREEDOM

Freedom lets your imagination soar by removing blocks. So:

freedom
  • uncover the assumptions you make
  • simplfy everything rather than complicate
  • uncover how your perception works
  • question your need for certainty
  • work with internal doubt and stay positive
  • realise that mental rules hinder your thinking
FLEXIBILITY

Flexibility improves imagination by letting you shift mental gears. So practise:

flexibility
  • Lateral thinking
  • Playing with ideas without constraints
