Perfection: a collection of a variety of pieces that, when viewed and felt individually, are difficult and confusing; but when brought together as one, create a perfect picture. Symphony, harmony, serenity. ~C. JoyBell C.

Right brain planning pages are more about doodles & wishes, jots & lists than planning — about getting {it} all downat least the necessary. My “necessary” is to begin with a 8.5×11 planning sheet template and adding daily notes, to-be’s and to-do’s — as well as color and art elements & prompts from The Art Journaler Community and {right brain} planning pages.

Doing so allows me to process my questions, vent my doubts and to discover “secret messages” and clues as art allows me to put some distance between my-self and my realities. Scheduling time each week to be still for minutes at a time, to pause and ponder challenging details of daily minutia and the dreams whispering {sometimes screaming} within.

What is Right Brain Planner?

What is Right Brain Planner? started as a WordPress blog in March of 2008 — an experiment of techniques, of trial and error — in an {almost desperate} attempt to liberate myself from lines and boxes {doubt and self-loathing} regarding my dedicated pursuit of maximizing my time and mental focus.

I found I could say things with colors that I couldn’t say in any other way — things that I had no words for. ~Georgia O’Keeffe

When the first pages of my own right brain planner were doodled {and collaged and jotted}, photographed and written about online, I had no grand plan of it ever becoming what it is now. I was simply resorting to a searchable means of keeping track of the notations and discoveries of creative planning I was compiling in my personal right brain planner {which began as an altered book}.

Why Right Brain Planner?

The practice of creative planning eases us off the hook of a performance-based self-worth, a core principle that is lacking in goal-oriented e-courses and life-coach offerings. The liberty to “color outside the lines” and allow the proverbial tide to carry us in our personal {and business} plans conserves precious energy, often fettered away in the midst of lines and boxes, checklists and must-do’s in order to {fill-in-the-blank}.

The focus of this blog is to offer inspiration for sorting through one’s habits, beliefs and emotions in order to escape of the circular pattern of “try hard, give up” … To share the stories of other creatively-minded people utilizing creative ways to plan and dream and sort through dailies.

 Be clear about your goal but be flexible about the process of achieving it. ~Brian Tracy
