With all these recommendations coming from all sides, there is so little room for clarity on the topic.
The frames we create for what we experience both inform and limit the way we think. And most of the time we are not aware of the frames we are using.
Being able to question and shift your frame of reference is an important key to enhancing your imagination because it reveals completely different insights.
You can practice reframing by physically or mentally changing your point of view, by seeing the world from others’ perspectives, and by asking questions that begin with “why.”
