!Go for it - think of vs think about
 
!Go for it
Our mission in life is not to change the world, our mission is to change ourselves

Basically, ‘think of’ usually means ‘imagine’ whereas ‘think about’ tends to mean something closer to ‘consider’, so the differences would arise in certain contexts. For example, if I say I’m thinking of a tropical beach, please don’t interrupt me! I mean I’m imagining it or daydreaming about it. However, a sentence like ‘they’re thinking about whether to agree to the sale,’ means they’re considering the sale. In these cases, it’s just natural usage patterns that tend to favour one form over another.

But when we are talking about people, we often tend to use them both in a similar way: For example, if my friend had an accident and went to hospital, I might send a card and some flowers with a message which could either read: ‘I’m thinking of you,’ or ‘I’m thinking about you’, and the meaning wouldn’t be significantly different.

Another example to better clarify the difference: As the directing manager, I promise that I shall give a hundred thousand pounds to the person that can think of (= invent/make up) an idea how to get out of the situation we have found ourselves, an idea that we can all think about (= consider).
