REALITY: Get out and see
for yourself, look for new perspectives and possibilities. Each of us has a unique perspective on the world around us. What we see matters a lot. You will see things no one else can.

through, sketch, plan, shape and ﬁne-tune changes. Improve the existing mix. This is where creativity comes in, as you begin toying with possibilities. Look for simple alterations that have worthwhile effects. Add elements. Remove and edit. See how it all ﬁts together. TWEET
Humans have a marvelous adaptation
in our brains that lets us actually have experiences in our heads, before we try them out in real life. –Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert TWEET
