Today I was talking to my friend, George Gabor Burt, author of the upcoming book, Slingshot: Re-Imagine Your Business, Re-Imagine Your Life, and he reminded to always keep the passion and spirit of childhood alive and well. The following quote from his book really struck a chord with me:
“As children, our imagination knew no boundaries. We would grab a slingshot and be instantly transformed into a warrior, a spy, a huntress, or a protector of treasure. But as we grew older, our imagination was gradually reigned in, and our thinking eventually settled within the accepted boundaries of conventionality. It seems that our intellectual comfort zone has shifted from that of continuous exploration and inquisitiveness to that of conformity with accepted norms of adult perception.”
Here’s to keeping our imaginations ignited and not fall into the comfort of conformity.
