Trapped in Either/or Thinking

A persistent source of confusion arises from either/or thinking—seeing only two, usually opposite possibilities. For example: either we’re on task or we’re lazy; we’re eating to improve health or we’re bingeing. When we engage in either/or thinking, we are always in the left-brain analytical side and not in the right-brain creative side. We break through as we “see” other alternatives and possibilities.

And with each imaginative consideration of possibility comes an additional source of energy—even if that energy is only a fresh perspective. Shifting your perspective on blocks, problems, fears, etc. is critical to seeing alternatives. View them as valuable information—clues about what you want instead.
