Barbara Sher defines a Scanner as a person with an extraordinary wide range of interests and curiosity in unrelated subjects + low tolerance for boredom: “They light up when they see new things, and they’re dying to do something with them.”
This 11-page Module is a compilation of tips and notes regarding ways to improve your overall ability to process your creative overflow.

Relevant to this Module:

I have learned to embrace my scanner-tendencies and ride the waves of my ideas.
Holding on loosely to my heart-desires and surrounding myself with living-color; being outdoors and tracking seasons & moon phases; researching new topics and experimenting with new art techniques.
Yes. All of that can become “too much” and messy, and at times overwhelming. But I find that creative distractions tend to ease the angst of everyday challenges, and the in-between and the “not-quite-there” times.
Are you a Scanner, too?
My mind lights up with new ideas each time I reread sections + add notes and art to my altered and color-coded copy of Sher’s book, Refuse to Choose!
I hosted a 21-day discussion group for Barbara Sher’s book, Refuse to Choose! offering my notes + my own creative tips for color-coding reading materials and honoring your creative pace. Module 7 is a compilation of the content discussed in the group.
