Default When one brain is dominant, discipline is needed for the lesser one.

Dien, you have a knowing, which is better than most...many artists struggle with the juggle between left and right side activities.

This might be one of the best arguments for TOOLS, to be engaged on behalf of the lesser hemisphere, the right for many artists.

Tools like software; basecamp, smartsheet, quickbooks, any and all that help organize and manage the day to day basics...and these along with the discipline to USE them at a set time every day (or as close to it being set as is possible).

Knowing that 90 mins midday is time to fill in the software, and making a habit or routine of it, will play wonders for the creative that may get lost in his own clouds of creativity.

Likewise, the right side dominant, should have daily time set aside for whatever is the most creative thing they do. That includes scribbling, scrying, and staring into space. Right sides, like Ben in this instance, have/had a hard time letting go of the control they need, the order, the precision.

Chaos is not a place right siders enjoy.

Anyhow, glad you are figuring out your personal circadia, your rhythms for getting the best from yourself. I think that band adventure provided some good fodder for future exploits too, would love to hear the full story on that one.

So, for all of us, who have to use both or all of our brain power, give the less dominant side routines...and you will be amazed at its productivity.

As you know, I was a band manager (I'm no longer a band manager - that's another story)!

Why do bands need managers? (And many other artists... actors, comedians, etc.)

Often the "creative" people are not so good at business!

I'm in a weird position, in that (for myself) I try to do both...

But I'm realizing (it's taken me a while)... When I'm in the "management" state of mind, I'm not that good at the creative stuff. And when I'm in the "creative" state of mind, I'm not that good at the management stuff...

It's like these are two different parts of my brain. And when one is "dominant" - the other one suffers!

So... What I'm trying to do now is to do the different types of activities during different parts of the day.

The "management / strategy" part during one part of the day... The "creative" part during another part of the day... And to try to keep these two things as separate as possible...

I think it will work better than letting the two mash together...!

Ben's money tables is a very left-brained endeavor... And his computer science background, likewise...

Astrology of course is very right-brained...

So I can see a little of what I'm talking about in that example...

Best wishes,
