Ever struggle with your left brain?

I fear I'm getting very polarized in the way I see things.

A logical/methodological model view of the world tends to win out over its counterpart of discovery and risk taking.

Got any useful information to help me see both sides?

Closing Statement from Arun Jose

Beside what I learnt here, I think the highlight is the quality of the conversation here.

Everyone who replied on here took some time out to think about a question that meant something to them, looked at it from multiple angles and came up with whatever they thought of it.

Life never really has black and white answers with a million shades of gray. So for me looking at 5 different answers is a lot more invigorating and tells me humans are one hell of a creative bunch.

In other words, your answers to how to live with a left brain, seems to tell me to go on a summer vacation soon:)

Thank you!

      May 30 2013: Hi LaMar,

      Thanks for your lines. Just to take it one step further, can you give me an example if you have any of how something like this played out in your life.

      My real problem here isn't lack of knowledge or research in the area but simple everyday "stuff" like laundry, cooking, cleaning, reading, working, sleeping, drinking coffee normal every day kind of stuff. How do you manage to keep that at bay?
