In this video from TEDxSydney last year, psychologist Evan Kidd explains how children with imaginary friends are more creative and socially competent.
Schools that use play-based learning have been shown to improve the creativity of children.
So, as entrepreneurs, if we want to be more creative shouldn’t we all have imaginary friends and find the time to play?
It worked for one of the great modern-day philosophers of our time – Calvin. Shouldn’t we all have an imaginary friend that is as awesome as the tiger known as Hobbes?
