Right Brain - Left Brain

Much has been written about the Right Brain (controls left - creativity) and Left Brain (controls right - logic). My point is not about whether or not this theory is true, but rather how to use both "sides" of the brain - logic and creativity. But I can state with confidence that to be a highly successful Entrepreneur, you need to use both sides of your brain.

I've been told by others that I have the unique ability to not only use BOTH my Right and Left brain, but to use them simultaneously. I didn't realize this, until people pointed it out -- indeed they were (pardon the pun) right! But the question is -- can you Train your Brain? The answer is a resounding YES!!!

Most people think they are either creative or logical, but not both. In my experience, it's true that people are born with a "tendency" toward either Right or Left brain, and the educational system reinforces that tendency. Naturally, for example, kids who are told they're not good at math, shy away from math, science, etc.

Personally, until about age 25, I was mostly a Left-Brainer. But I deliberately trained the Right side of my brain. How? Easy -- I exercised it. Huh? I took classes in painting, sculpture, dance, writing, acting, drawing, photography, literature, etc. In addition, as a marketing guy in my early career, I became equally interested in the products as well as the advertising, colors, design, etc. Was it easy? No. It took about 5-7 years, but it was well worth it.

I agree with you wholeheartedly! I too was a left brain person.......exceptionally good at math. In actual fact I loved anything that had a right or wrong answer. I was never trained as a child to use my right brain very much. In the last 10 years I've learned to dance, written 3 books and look for opportunities to use my right brain more. There are certain times in my life when it seems I can use both simutaneously as well.
