Success: The Importance of Daydreaming and a Quiz

Saturday, August 3, 2013

Our culture is all about achievement. Meeting up with family, friends, co-workers and we're asked what's shaking. On the receiving end, I'm always scrambling to summarize my life events including spouse's, children's, heck even are pets are discussed as achievement oriented. We've all been there.

Yet in all this hullabaloo, when have we been asked what are we dreaming? Or the contents of our last fantasy? How about the status of our daydreams? Zilch.

Sure, in order to succeed we must stay the stay, realize it's the longevity of the race, and even during the darkest hour, we must continue as though the light were blazing. Faith, persistence, and loyalty to the cause are what make a champion.

In all this glory, we must remember that in order to have a goal, we must have a vision. And where does this imagery come from?

The moments you least find goal oriented. During those times we slip away from conscious planning and our mind is free to wander. Daydreaming is mind play. Forming connections in fluid free-fall, our imagings are the point at which our brilliance is born.

Here's four quotes: Match the quote with the speaker
Choices: (a) Neil Gaiman, (b) Gloria Steinem, (c)Albert Einstein, and (d) Oscar Wilde

(1) “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

(2)“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”

 (3) “You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we're doing it.”

(4) “Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” 
Curious about the status of your own imagination? Maybe, maybe not. Well if you are here's two quizzes. One fun and games; the other a bit more career flavored. Enjoy!
