Many people have lost their sense of imagination.
This is partly because in school we learned to follow directions and stick to an exact schedule.
We didn’t get time or space for daydreaming, inventing, creating, and wondering.
The good news? You can re-cultivate your imagination, if you choose to.
Why does this matter for your career?
Well, how can you be 10%. more imaginative in how you go about creating opportunities?
Maybe market yourself on Twitter.
Maybe send a video of yourself doing 100 push-ups.
Maybe create a project up front and slide it into the hiring manager’s email inbox.
There are plenty of ways to make yourself stand out.
You just want to tap into that child-like creativity.
Can you break your default thinking patterns, and give yourself some space to be different?

Our good friend, Kevin Koskella has the answers in his new book, A Rebel’s Guide To Freedom.
