Daydreaming produces ideas and ideas come before the business innovation. Daydreaming is so routine that we usually think little about it or how it affects us. The types are so varied that there is still no definition of daydreaming that researchers agree upon. However, what is agreed upon is daydreaming is an important, intriguing and necessary part of mental life. 

This liberating idea of encouraging daydreaming is radical. However, creating designs and solutions for collaborating with other thinkers on how to make Africa self-reliant is not radical but essential. The idea for self-reliance comes before action. Those who take action before having an idea are unprepared and thus find themselves lacking.

When you are daydreaming, your mind naturally cycles through different modes of thinking, and different areas of your brain are involved in a completed tango. Our brains are built to daydream. Daydreaming keeps our minds active while helping us manage life and be creative. Ideas shape action, daydreaming is the gateway to creativity, problem solving and boosting productivity for a better Africa. 


Daydreams are your source for ideas, when daydreaming; you can visualize the idea, mimic events, and are free to look from every angle. Going to school in Johannesburg, South Africa by Mads BodkerYou must be a part of cultivating innovation around the clock. Many innovators jot down ideas that pop up throughout the day. Daydreams are your source for ideas, when daydreaming; you can visualize the idea, mimic events, and are free to look from every angle. 

You get ideas from daydreaming, projects start as ideas, ideas and drive turn into action and action creates change for a better Africa. Daydreaming is just the first step on the long path to successful innovation.
