We all have two minds, yet we don’t often use them together. Each side, the free wheeling fluid right brain and the sharp analytical left brain have unique strengths but we’ve been brainwashed (sorry, couldn’t resist) to only use half our resources at any one time.
If you’re trying to solve a business problem or figure out how to assemble that IKEA cabinet, relying on the left side has become a habit just like always using the right side when you want to paint, write or decorate the living room.
It’s time to get out of the bad habit of only listening to one side of our brain. This month, we’re going to take a look at left and right brains (not real ones, that would be messy) and how they can make better decisions by working together.
That’s Doodle Head Two Brains up there and there’s an error in the execution. Do you know what it is? Here’s a hint: I have moderate left/right confusion – meaning I can’t tell my left from my right sides very well.
Leave a comment with the problem you spotted in the drawing and your left/right experiences or send me note – I answer each and every one and love to get mail from you!
