Because Somebody Imagined

Whenever you imagine something new, you give the world the creative arsenal it needs. You pioneer a whole new perspective to explore and trigger ideas.

It’s fascinating to see how a novel, authentic thought can burst into a chain reaction of new ideas.

Sharing some examples here:

  • H.G. Wells wrote The Time Machine in 1895. Since then, the single thought has led to countless pieces of fiction and it aroused a ton of scientific curiosity.
  • Thomas Paine coined the term common sense. That one phrase set a new benchmark in our approach of educating and explaining, giving rise to a no-nonsense approach. 
  • DJ Kool Herc invented hip hop while performing at a birthday party, and even created the genre of rapping. Now it’s omnipresent.
  • Heinz Guderian, a German general, invented the Blitzkrieg form of military strategy shortly before World War II that won Germany several wars. Later, it was adopted by other countries.

The point being this

One person who’s creative, who tries hard, and imagines something new eventually shatters conventions and opens doors that didn’t exist before.

The world is a better place because of individuals who give more than what’s expected of them. Not all people question how ideas are born on a day-to-day basis. They’re only concerned with their work and carry on without much thought.

But when we have individuals who stop, gaze, question, and imagine – we’re introduced to several dimensions. And while that might seem immensely tough, trying doesn’t hurt.
