Chapter 5. Treat Goals as Hypotheses > Imagine the Experiences

Imagine the Experiences

Treating goals as hypotheses forces you into futures thinking. Goals and hypotheses are about the future. Treating goals as hypotheses encourages you to use your imagination. You can investigate, in your imagination, if what you think you want really is what you want, before you actually get it. Imagine it happening or not happening, or imagine something else happening. You can even imagine not having a goal and find out how that feels.

You can develop a good imagination by practicing.
