“If you want to use your imagination to create a new job, start by imagining the desired job through each sense, one at a time. Begin with what your ideal job sounds like. What sounds would be present at your workplace? Try voicing out loud the kinds of conversations you would have with colleagues. What clothes would you wear? Then move on to your work environment. If, for example, you want to be a writer, would you use a computer or a pen? Would you sit a desk or work at a table? What hours would you work?
Then ask yourself how the environment would smell. For instance, if your ideal job is in an office, you might want to imagine a flower stall nearby, supplying you with a steady supply of flowers for your desk. Perhaps there are windows that open to the greenery outside. You can even try imagining how your desired work atmosphere would taste. Perhaps you’ll have a freshly brewed cup of coffee from the office lunchroom or eat sushi from a nearby Japanese restaurant. Remember, imagination is a muscle that needs to be exercised, and these sorts of musings are how we strengthen it.”
Sonia Choquette, in “True Balance”
