Finding your creative Zen: Getting your right brain and left brain to work together

Chris Pearson is a genius.

I would have said that before simply because he’s the one who created the Cutline theme for WordPress.

But, now, I have another reason. This post: How to Find Your Creative Zen. Well, that, and the fact that he manages to work Frogger into the discussion. Nuff said.

Oh wait. Not enough said.

You see, we’re all trying to operate at an optimal level, full of energy and creativity. And we’re trying to improve things. We all strive to be as productive as possible. Any of you reading this is likely trying to put in her/his best on a daily basis. But some days are just better than others. Some days are a creative high. Others? Pretty unfocused lows.
Just happenstance? Not according to Pearson.

In reality, these Zen-like states are not nearly as unpredictable or as unattainable as you might think. In most cases, they occur as natural fallout from a well-constructed creative process. If you want to live on that free-flowing edge, then you must learn how to force your brain through the sequence of triggers that will result in your own cognitive Zen.

Want to figure out how? Read on, true believer.
