Chapter 6 - Imagination - The Workshop of the Mind
Henry Ford said "Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few
engage in it."
Michael Dlouhy says Mentoring for Free is "Where you learn How to Think, Not What to Think."
If thinking is the hardest work there is and Mentoring for Free teaches us how to think, that could
be the reason so many people come here and do not stay- there is work involved in thinking.
We have to use our imagination and as Hill tells us "imagination is the workshop of the mind."
A workshop indicates something happening. It is not letting just everything and anything into our
mind. There is a purpose going on. One of the definitions of imagination in the dictionary is
"a creation of the mind."
Creating in our mind the vision of what we want to accomplish is the first step. We must go beyond
the creation of the vision and go to the the next step which is the plan and actually accomplishing of
the vision. After all a workshop suggests work is involved. Just creating the vision is only doing half
Create the vision, create the plan and do the work.
As Henry Ford said "Thinking is the hardest work there is" so the hard part is done we just have to
accomplish the follow up and do the work.
