7 Secrets To High Performance Thinking

Part 5 - Whole-Brained Thinking

John Colanzi

In Parts 1 through 4 of this series we've discussed relaxation, visualization and autosuggestion and goal setting.

The fifth secret of high performance thinking is to think with both sides of your brain. High performance thinkers are whole-brained thinkers.

Most of us have one side of our brains dominant. If the left side is dominant we tend to be more logical. If our right side is more dominant we tend to be more Intuitive.

A prime example would be what we label as women's intuition. For some reason we find it more acceptable for women to use their intuition and we expect men to be more analytical.

The true high performance thinkers are as comfortable setting down detailed plans for accomplishing their goals as they are at thinking outside the box and coming up with a new way of seeing and doing things.

The true skill is to be able to use either side at will.

It's sad to see how many writers, artists and inventors have historically ended up broke, when all they would have needed was to use a little more of their left brain logic.

At the other end of the spectrum, you can find many businesses going under because they fall behind their competitors who are willing to use their right brain skills and intuit coming change.

To operate at maximum efficiency, you must learn to be a balanced thinker.

You not only need to know how to use both sides of your brain, you must know when to use your rational analytical skills and when to be more intuitive.

You should develop your reasoning and research skills, while allowing enough flexibility to follow your hunches.

If you studied many of our top executives you'd find they have two major traits in common.

1. They are goal setters. (left brain skill)

2. They credit much of their success to following their hunches. (right brain skill)

Bottom line.

They are whole brain thinkers.

Your brain's a marvelous creation. Don't waste either half. Use it all.

Become a whole brain thinker and you'll be ahead of your competition.

In part six of this report we'll cover more Secrets Of High Performance Thinking.
