There are very few who would argue against the notion that most freelance professionals, especially those operating in the design/development and writing arenas, tend to operate from a creative base. They are, by and large, a group that has chosen to let the right side of their brain steer them as far as the road stretches out before them. Having embraced their creative and artistic nature, merging it into their career path and never looking back. And for the most part, a creative mind fits well in this freelance environment where they ultimately call all the shots and are bound by very few restraints. For the most part.
However this road is not without its bumps, and for a lot of freelancers, these bumps come when the left brain must be engaged to navigate the terrain. Most of us are familiar with the concept of ‘'Right Brain vs. Left Brain, wherein it has been shown that the two hemispheres of the brain control different modes of thinking. The right is the creative and artistic side, the left being the more logical and analytical.
Given that most of us are less apt to be full-minded, where we excel in both modes of thinking, there always tends to be some issues when it comes time for you to mentally cross-over to the otherside for a spell. This can be a problem in freelancing, because though we prefer to tend right, we have to handle every aspect of our business and that means every so often, going left.
