Children have this incredible capability to transform their reality in a matter of seconds into something magical: a place where everything can happen and the only limits are one’s imagination. No matter how old we are, if we try hard enough we still can remember bits and pieces of this land of beauty where legends came alive, where the lines of the carpet were windy mountain roads for matchbox cars and dolls had their own social life. If we look closely we will realize that Toy Story is rather boring, because our toys had way better lives and adventures.
One major effect of growing up — or side effect, some may argue — is that we slowly let go of our vivid imagination. Fantasies become scenarios more anchored in our reality and we name them plans: future plans, business plans, and any other plan you can think of.
