One of the innovation tools, I love the most, is using science-fiction. It's a very dynamic technique often used by innovative companies, but there is no reason, you shouldn't use it as an innovative individual as well.
Personally, I have used it many times as an entrepreneur for more than 20 years, and it gives you a unique leverage in your thinking.
The reason is that you get a bigger space around it, and thereby also a bigger timeline. You simply start seeing your company and its products and services in a bigger perspective.
