Debra Eckerling (author of Your Goal Guide) talks goals for imagination and where to even start on your creativity.
Continuing with the August theme of Fun, this week on GoalChatLive, we talked about Imagination. David Chen, Co-Founder of AngelVest, Storyboard Artist Thomas Moser (Duncanville), and Author Brandie June (Gold Spun) joined me for possibly the most logical conversation on imagination.
We talked about imagination from a start-up, as well as a creative, perspective.
According to our guests, imagination is …
- Brandie: Anything beyond your actual reality
- Thomas: What you can think of
- David: What you can dream of
David, Brandie, and Thomas shared how they used imagination in – and outside of – their creative endeavors over the last year, tips for getting unstuck, how to tap into imagination, and more.

Goals for Imagination
- David: The goal is to have a goal! When you have that sense of purpose, everything will fall into place.
- Thomas: Stop waiting for the perfect opportunity to start a project. If all you have is 5 minutes, take 5 minutes. Those minutes add up.
- Brandie: Look at your goals from different angles to see if something else shakes loose. Flip ideas on their head.
- David: Don’t be held back. Let go and set yourself free.
- Thomas: All ideas have value! Have confidence.
- Brandie: Come up with a structure and format to be creative.

A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals
Start with a plan. One of the biggest reasons goals fail is that we often don’t put enough thought into what we really want before diving in. Your Goal Guide by Debra Eckerling starts with that first, crucial step: figuring out your goals and putting a plan in place. As a professional writer, communications specialist, and project catalyst with more than 20 years of experience, Eckerling is prepared to help you achieve success.
