Organization for Right Brained people
Wednesday, January 12, 2011
I am more of a "Right Brain" person. For those that don't know, that means that you think with the right side of your brain, which supposedly means you do things differently than people who think with the left side of their brain. The right side tends to be creative and spontaneous, while left brained people tend to be more logical and structured. The right brain controls the left side of the body, and the opposite is true of the left brain. So right brain people tend to be left side dominant, i.e., write with the left hand, etc. In my case, my vision even tends to be better in my left eye.
My question is most of the organizing world seems to be geared toward the Left Brained person. Like, schedule in 15 minutes to clean every day. What?? I don't really work well with schedules, for one.
So a lot of time management, cleaning techniques, and even goal setting techniques (spend 30 minutes a day doing xyz) don't really work for me. Make sure everything has a place... well I could do that, but then I'm likely to forget where that place was.
I'm going to see about reading a book, as there are some out there, on organizing or goal setting for right brained types. Any suggestions, I'd appreciate...
Here's an interesting test on if you are left or right brained. Interestingly, I scored only barely more right brained than left.
