Building your Imagination Muscle

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution." - Albert Einstein

Our education system excels at imparting information and knowledge, a role historically deemed paramount. However, with the rise of AI and the eventual prospect of AGI, human retention of information and knowledge is gradually losing its relevance as a technology.

What is becoming more indispensable is human imagination. In my view, human imagination eclipses the capabilities of any computer or AI entity we can construct.

Most people tend to regard imagination as mere childhood fancy or an indulgence in artistic pursuits. However, in reality, imagination stands as a potent force propelling innovation, problem-solving, and success across all domains. It serves as a catalyst for wealth creation and societal advancement. When we observe those who have attained the highest levels of success as entrepreneurs, we find that it is often due to their exceptional imaginations coupled with a very intense work ethic.

Participating in ventures is one way to build your imagination muscle. It offers an unparalleled opportunity to exercise and strengthen this aspect of yourself. When you think about it, venture serves as pathway to construct futures that do not exist today, compelling individuals to engage their imagination to envision what lies beyond the immediate horizon and to connect dots where others see only disparate elements

So get in the game of venture and start cultivating your imagination today!
