Logical solutions and creative solutions in your life

In my three Matrix collections, I explore both logical and creative solutions in great depth. These two types of solutions also arise frequently in my consulting work with private clients.
A logical solution deals with a problem in a way that brings you closer to achieving a specific objective. You think through a problem, understand it, and come up with a fix that works. There isn’t any doubt or confusion about it. A logical solution isn’t a “maybe.” It isn’t, in any sense, vague. It’s an entirely reasonable and successful response. However long it takes you to discover the solution, once you apply it, it’s on the order of patching a hole in a tire. The hole was the problem. The patch made the problem go away. You can now drive the car again.
A creative solution is different. It may be a response to a specific problem, but it may also be a way of getting out ahead of a problem that hasn’t even surfaced yet. A creative solution—depending on the situation—can take you into a realm where you’re launching a major enterprise…and now you see how to do it. Finally. A creative solution isn’t a patch for a hole in a tire. It might be a new car. It might not be a car at all. It might be a road you’ve never seen before, a road that suddenly emerges before you, a road you profoundly desire to travel.
A creative solution takes imagination; and deploying your imagination can lead you into areas that, initially, seem to have nothing to do with the future you’re contemplating. But then you find yourself shaping a vision that expresses buried hidden energies and your best dreams. This process of realization doesn’t occur along a straight line.
Being able to enact both logical and creative solutions can transform a life. This dual capacity might be occasionally mentioned in school or in the workplace, but it’s never really explored.
Some people are “over-balanced.” They’re all logic all the time. Or they’re intensely creative but rarely find direct answers that could help them make things work in the world.
I’ve met people who feel their particular over-balance has to be guarded like a castle. If they’re all logic, they should never let imagination in the door; and vice versa. They think the capacity they’re missing would, if cultivated, ruin what they already have, like some sort of contamination.
But the truth is, being able to deploy both logic and creative imagination is a tremendous advantage.
If the goal is bringing about the future you desire—and, yes, that is the goal—then this dual capacity is exactly what you need.
In popular culture, much speculation focuses on the subject of the left brain and right brain and how they function. What I’m discussing here is much more than that. Logic and creative imagination aren’t merely particles percolating in separate areas of the brain—instead, they’re deep impulses in the psyche which, when brought out into the open, side by side, transmute the perception of, and the approach to, life.
The future is unwritten and wide open; it’s an adventure of the highest order. Logic plus imagination unlock it.
