Anybody know what this is?
It's no secret that it takes a lot of time and energy to keep up an online journal. The creative thought that goes into even the simplest of entries is very time consuming, not to mention the amount of time spent taking and editing photos, creating an animation or graphic, writing a song, a poem or a haiku, painting a beautiful picture, drawing a cartoon or just telling silly inside stories about the magically mundane moments in our lives.
A book that I'm reading right now, "Organizing for the Creative Person" <-- describes the creative person as someone with the gift of being able to perceive global matters and produce emotion, image, intuition, sensuality, creativity and humor in a charismatic manner that may easily draw others to them.
The book also mentions that this kind of creativity resides in the right hemisphere of the brain and that the right hemisphere lacks any concept of time, structure or detail. These are traits that reside on the left side of the brain.
It seems as if the author of this book is trying to say, that the more time we spend using the right side of our brain, the higher our risk of becoming a bit disorganized in other aspects of our lives.
Since so many of you are among the most creative people that I know, I was wondering if any of you can relate to some degree, about becoming less organized in other areas when you are spending so much time being creative, or is it just me?
