The Principles for Imagination
There is a lot of emphasis on using Logic at school especially in the later years, to the detriment of Imagination. As we get older, our imagination dwindles and so we need to actively spend time exercising it.
Fuel is the energy for your imagination
We use the principles of Fuel, Freedom and Flexibility to let your imagination soar again.
Freedom lets your imagination soar by removing blocks
We use the principles of Fuel, Freedom and Flexibility to let your imagination soar again.
Flexibility improves imagination by letting you shift mental gears
We use the principles of Fuel, Freedom and Flexibility to let your imagination soar again.
