I’m a structural engineer by trade. By society’s standards, this means I dwell in the deep recesses of my left side brain. But if I stay here, it means I’m only utilizing a portion of my potential. And this puts me at dangerous risk of becoming a commodity. I used to fully believe that spending all of my time honing in on these logical strengths would make me most successful. It wasn’t until recently that I realized that it’s poor practice to try to use one side of my brain nonstop every day and expect extreme efficiency and perfection. I am not a machine, I am human. A productive, rewarding and successful career is comprised of a concerted balance of left and right brain engagement.
