Build observation skills – Supercharge your imagination
Observance – The awareness of focused elements of the world around you while making judgements, connections and decisions based on the elements you observe and your previous knowledge and experience.
Imagination – Filling in the gaps between observations.
I’ll talk in first person here if you don’t mind.
I’m 40, a multi-skilled entrepreneur filling my days as an Electrical and Data Contractor, Composer and Sound designer for film and online projects, Online Business Consultant, husband of 22 years and father of 3 grown up kids. I have a Black Belt in Karate, favouring weapons and kata. I’m an excellent problem solver and have a reputation of fixing anything and i credit this to many years of focused observance. I have always been creative and have had a vast imagination but only recently have found it to be directly connected to being super observant. As a result, I now dedicate a good chunk of my time to studying observance and imagination as a practice, nutting out the science and practice and developing methods and tutorials on how to apply it to everyday life.
I don’t have a degree in observance, imagination, psychology or anything related to observance or imagination as a skill, however after 40 years of habitual observation and imagination, I believe I’m now qualified to dive in a bit deeper and share some of how I find success in life.
But also, I’m learning along the way. I’ll always be learning. Some of you who read this will be far smarter than me and will be able to share a whole lot more wisdom than I can. I’d like to learn off you. Lets take this journey of growing in observance and imagination together.
Is this observance linked to your lateral thinking Steve?
It’s a bit more like spherical thinking these days.
In a nutshell 😉
