Imagination and Creativity



Imagination is the ability to envision a reality that does not yet exist. Creativity is the inspirational energy and skill that allows us to turn that vision into reality. But creativity is not just an artistic ability to create “something from nothing:” it encompasses all manner of ways we synthesize, improve, modify, and personalize the world around us. Any aspect of problem-solving—whether encountered while parenting, teaching, or even debugging a database—relies on an ability to see a possible future and implementing strategies to bring it about. Every human being is capable of being imaginative and creative. While some people are inherently more artistically inclined than others, everyone can enhance their creative abilities with regular practice and by finding places of inspiration that stimulate the mind and heart.
