Mazes, Connections, And My Non-Linear Brain


I've written before about my non-linear brain.

Being non-linear in a world of tasks and lists of things-to-do is hard for us.

Even though I try to stay on task with my projects [and blogging] – I just never seem to be able to do so for a long period of time.

My brain finds such other interesting things to ponder, think of maze-in-my-headwriting about, and/or designing a new project about!

Some people can enter a maze and plot their way out…their brains find a path and stick to it.

If they hit a dead end, they figure out how to get back to the choice point where they entered the "wrong" path.

Not my brain…My brain frequently goes into those alleged dead ends…and when it is there – instead of finding it's way out – it says

"WOW" Look at all the interesting things to do in THIS dead end."


And so it goes……I love my brain – but there are times I wish I could get it to be just a bit more linear…….

Thoughts? Suggestions? Thank you!

    I had to chuckle at this today, Lynn. I’m totally there with you!

  • Lynn, were you secretly thinking about me when you wrote that post? I can totally relate to what you described!

    • Jeanine – thanks and LOL – it’s nice to met other non-linears – the rest of world has trouble understanding us so we need to support each other

    Oh, you and me both! My non-linear thinking has been the source of much of the stress and frustration in my life, though also the source of much of the fun and excitement. You take the good with the bad, I guess. 😉
