Why is it Important to Read, Play, and Create? I would love to hear your response to this question. To me the answer is simple, Imagination. Imagination leads to Innovation. We wouldn’t have any Apple products if Steve Jobs didn’t ever wonder during his calligraphy class, or what if Walter Elias Disney never experimented with combining his love for drawing and photography. Imagine if Wilbur and Orville Wright never laid in the grass, staring at the sky and wondering if humans could ever fly like the birds.
In my opinion, our world needs innovative minds to move our cultures forward in a productive and enjoyable way. I believe that comes from observing the world around you, experimenting different cultures and environments, meeting new people and seeing life through their eyes in an accepting, not criticizing, manner. We need to celebrate and enjoy our differences that enrich our lives. Innovation is a product of reading!
Different cultures, situations and experiences can all come from the pages of a book, allowing us access to information or emotions we are not exposed to in our everyday lives. Playing and creating can all stem from reading an amazing adventure inside a book. It is a jumping off point for the experiences you take may in your own life. Our imagination is stimulated by reading and can inspire creation! Imagination leads to Innovation. Turn your life upside down today, think out of the box and question everything! What would life be like if you were only two inches tall? Conversely, what if you were twenty-two feet tall? What if you could only talk in gibberish, how would you communicate? Immerse yourself in something new and different today.
Have fun imagining and enjoy the Adventure!
