Freedom Mindset Radio is about empowering you to build the life you desire and deserve, instead of being trapped in a lifestyle by default. I recently joined host Curt Mercadante — international speaker, trainer, and bestselling author to discuss the topic of innovation. What happens when we aren’t able to put down our phones and find time to just think, be innovative, and creative?
If I would give one tip for innovation, it would be to be curious and take risks. Those moments of innovation, that moment of genius, that crazy idea, can come when you’re in the shower, lounging in your favorite chair, or daydreaming. But now, even if we’re on the train, instead of gazing out the window, we’re staring at our phones. Instead of taking in the sights and scenes of the world, our eyes are looking down at our screens. We wake up in the morning and check our feeds, instead of taking a walk, emptying our minds, or being present.
One of the biggest casualties of our digital lifestyle is we’ve lost the ability to daydream. I challenge anyone to sit in their favorite armchair for 10 minutes, or they’ve gone out for a walk. How long until you pick up your smartphone? There’s always a notification just waiting to give you that next dopamine hit. Some people can’t even go to the toilet, without taking their phone in there.
