You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
According to the 9/11 Commission, a “failure of imagination” of our intelligence community and our nation’s leadership was a contributing factor in the horrific September 11th tragedy. If officials had let their imaginations roam, it’s possible they could have anticipated what terrorists were capable of doing; then measures could have been taken which might have thwarted a terrorist attack.
This same conclusion is being applied to the attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II. The author of a book on the subject details that American political and military leaders exercised little or no imagination about what the Japanese government might be planning. And the Failure of Imagination criticism is now being heard in the wake of the tragedies of Hurricane Katrina.
The opposite of a Failure of Imagination is an Abundance of Imagination. Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” One example of this Abundance is a business that creates new products and services to make life better!
