Sometimes we find ourselves in the throws of challenges, shifts, and changes. We wonder what to do to fix or generate something different. We’re tense…pressing for “the answer.”
In my personal and professional life I’ve found what really works is to occupy our left brain with an activity…something fun that requires our attention. This, in turn, allows the right brain to wander off on its own…paying no attention to the task requiring left brain attention. I call this “taking a field trip.”
Something happens when we step out of our routine…often something we least expect.
Yes…we’re engaged in an activity…and…what’s really happening is we’re freeing up our right brain…giving it permission to go off on its own. When we do this…an idea…a viable possibility can present itself…all because we were NOT paying attention or focusing on the problem! We STOP picking at the dilemma. We step away. We go play…yes…play. We do something we don’t usually do…maybe even something we’ve never done before…something that occupies the rational logical part of our brain so the creative part can do what it does best and help us out.
The adventurous and unique creativity exercises I’ve created and offer here have fostered many new perspectives and created many new beginnings for individuals, groups, and teams.
No prior experience is necessary!
