What is your vision of the future? How much do you let your imagination run wild? I often imagine… What the hell will this ever-changing world look like?
We’ll have flying cars for people who are still materialistic and teleporting for the folks who just want to get from A to B. Next, Robots will be our personal helpers that don’t require payment or gratitude because who wants to shell out compliments or money? Food won’t be consumed like normal, we’ll just pop a pill that lights up our flavor sensors and… We just had a buffalo chicken salad that was freaking delicious!
You get where I was going, I could just paint a futuristic landscape in my head for the next 10 minutes. Nevertheless, all of those ideas are not even mine. I have read or seen those ideas before. So how do we come up with unique ideas?
We steal them!
We steal these ideas and make them better, a little faster, a bit bigger or smaller, and more appealing. Then we re-introduce these stolen ideas to the world. We turn people into believers that our product or service is superior and there is nothing like it! But we have to first believe in our selves.
I think we all have a little innovator inside of us that is ready to start breaking ideas down and envisioning something greater. Maybe that something could be completely new? Would it not be amazing to create the next innovation the entire world talks about? To go from zero to one? Hell yea it would! That something could be rumbling around in your head right now, but without letting your imagination loose, we might not get a chance to witness it.
I propose we bust out our little kid imagination and let it take over every once in a while… You never know what we’re capable of creating next 🙂 Maybe a great story that captivates your audience and puts them on the edge of their seats?
Take it easy and thanks for reading!
