More than one solution
More Than One Solution

Smart entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs do not stop thinking when they find one right answer — they look around for more.


How to find more answers

Change your routines

Talk to and listen to people

Make lists and don’t be afraid to change them

Write down all your new ideas before you forget them

Daydream

Try to look at things from different perspectives

Read something you’ve never read before

Try something you’ve never tried before

How To Find More Answers


Left brain and right brain thinking
Left Brain and Right Brain Thinking

The human brain is divided into two hemispheres — the right brain and the left brain


Left brain and right brain thinking1
Left Brain and Right Brain Thinking

Research shows that each half functions differently



Left brain right brain thinking

Left Brain Thinking

Logic:Drawing conclusions based on logic: one thing following another in logical order.

Linear:Thinking in terms of linked ideas, one thought directly following another, often leading to a convergent conclusion.

Right Brain Thinking

Intuitive:Making leaps of insight, often based on incomplete patterns, hunches, feelings and visual images.

Holistic:Seeing whole things at once, perceiving the overall patterns and structures, often leading to divergent conclusions.

Left Brain – Right Brain Thinking

Left Brain Thinking

Verbal:Using words to name, describe, define.

Temporal:Keeping track of time, sequencing one thing after another.

Right Brain Thinking

Nonverbal:Awareness of things, but minimal connection with words.

Non-temporal:Without sense of time.

Left Brain Thinking

Rational:Drawing conclusions based on reason and facts.

Analytic:Figuring things out step by step and part by part.

Right Brain Thinking

Non-rational:Not requiring a basis of reason or facts; willingness to suspend judgment.

Synthetic:Putting things together to form wholes.

Left Brain Thinking

Abstract:Taking out a small bit of information and using it to represent the whole thing.

Symbolic:Using a symbol to stand for something.

Digital:Using numbers as in counting.

Right Brain Thinking

Analogic:Seeing relationship between things, understanding metaphoric relationships.

Concrete:Relating to things as they are at the present moment.

Spatial:Seeing where things are in relation to other things, and how parts go together to form a whole.

Look at the chart below and say the color of the word - not the word itself.

The right side of the brain tries to say the color while the left side tries to say the word.

Can you do it?

The two brain hemispheres work together, supporting each other and producing results that neither could attain on its own.
