A Failsafe for a Wandering Right-Brain
This is a confession, about which I have mentioned before in essays. I am a wandering right-brained person. Additionally, I would not have it any other way. I benefit from having my right hemisphere being dominant. I love the creativity that being right-brained provides. There are only a few things about which I am driven organizationally. Aside from teaching where I am organized to a fault, I am pretty much right-brained dominant.
While I delight in the manner that I function in life, there are some drawbacks. Often, I cannot find things due to not filing them in either my home or my computer. My house tends to look less well kept than I would prefer. As a consequence, my creative-side suffers. In the past, I have written about organizing my writing. This is a recent screen-shot of my schedule.
This does work to organize my time and effort for my essays. However, there is another organizing grid for life in general. I came up with this grid years ago. However, I filed it and forgot where I saved it. This grid addresses things to be done daily, monthly, and yearly. When I have this grid on my desk, I am less stressed and more productive.
Things that must be done this week:
Things that must be done this month:
Things that must be done this year:
This grid, when used, works wonders for someone like me who is a wandering right-brained person. Nevertheless, if you are left-brained, this grid can enhance your ability to manage and accomplish far more. Both right and left-brained people can benefit from this failsafe grid.
This attachment will provide a grid sheet for you.
