Today was a big day… Google Glass was available for purchase but for 24 HOURS ONLY. Being the tech gadget lover that I am, I stewed long and on the idea of owning the new tech. With immense research on the product, I decided I just couldn’t live without them. Today I couldn’t help but give myself the ability to concentrate on the possibilities that Google Glass brought to the table so I decided to skip lunch and go on the “Long” run today… So to the (guard) shack and back I went.
With the imaginative juices flowing like the Yellowstone Old Faithful Geyser, the Inception Movie soundtrack blasting through my auditory canals, I went to work without distraction. I must’ve conjured 100 ideas within the 51:57 5-mile timeframe while my brain was traveling at Warp 9. I came up with games, functional uses, business need utilizations, marketing schemes, social networking additions, military integration uses, entrepreneurial advantages, human productivity increase’rs, traveler functionalities, and a plethora of other uses. Google Glass brings forward a whole new market to the consumer and WORLD at that.
Imagine the idea of staring up at the night sky and the Google Glass connecting the dots of constellations or tracking the very run I was currently undertaking, showing me visually if I was on pace with my last run. Imagine using hand gestures to control the phone in your pocket and with the movement of a finger, charging the digital bungie that was about to launch those angry angry birdies over to some unsuspecting pigs. Imagine looking at a math problem and the glass presenting the answer, or looking onto the magnificent NYC Big Apple skyline from the top of the Empire State Building and detailed descriptions of the buildings in the landscape expanding. Imagine walking through an art museum and instantaneous information appearing right in your eyes on Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Mona Lisa or Salvador Dali’s Hallucinogenic Toreador. Imagine walking up to a stranger in another country and having a conversation with them by the Google Glass presenting their native tongue in English on your glass and your words appearing in their native language on their glass without falter.
Our minds are incredibly powerful and everyday you have imagination flowing. Harness the power of your dreams and find your passions’ in life. What excites you? What do you think about while you are sitting at your cubicle or taking the heavily trafficked drive to work? Your imagination is your co-pilot to self value and realization. Its the swiss army knife for your entire thought process. Take advantage of this gift and stray from squandering or burying it due to fear of others judgements. Speak your thoughts and voice your ideas. Everyone has an inherit want to be happy, not just content and if you find yourself with a blank mental canvas on what makes you happy, excites you, inspires you, intrigues you, and motivates you; allow that natural mental elixir of imagination to pour it’s magical spirit into your consciousness. You will find delight in what comes of it. Unhappiness is a choice. The veil of discontent can shroud us from an entire world of wonder that lies before us. Take chances and push back against naysayers by choosing who to and not to let into your world. You will find others in the same mind frame once you choose to include them.
We are each a lemming in a world of lemmings with unique thoughts, outlooks and inspirations, yet we all share 1 commonality; an imagination that can be elevated and listened to. An imagination that paints the picture of who you are. It takes no guide to simply THINK. Breakdown the barriers you have built up to protect your creativity from judgement and you will find that the world you lived is much more vast than you thought it was yesterday. Happy dreaming!
