Brainstorming

I’m finally back with a blog post! I’ve been away from posting (even though it’s been on my To-Do list) as I’m transitioning into a new role and honestly I let being lazy and tired become acceptable  excuses from engaging on here. This goes to show ‘action expresses priorities’ -Gandi

Flashback to elementary school and learning how to brainstorm ideas for paper topics. Who would’ve thought the concept of brainstorming could hold relevant in life beyond elementary school. Well, as in the picture displayed brainstorming can be extremely beneficial in mapping out one’s professional path…heck even life!

A goal without a plan is just a wish…

So, what again is brainstorming? In case you missed or filed this lecture in the very back of your head as non-essential information. Brainstorming is the process of jotting down all ideas to help formulate an answer to a question. Or as Merriam-Webster states, ‘a group problem-solving technique that involves the spontaneous contribution of ideas from all members of the group; also the mulling over the ideas by one or more individuals in an attempt to devise or find a solution to a problem.’

According to Dr. Gail Matthews (2017) those who consistently wrote down their goals and desires were significantly successful at achieving their goals and desires from those who did not write them down. How is this possible you ask? By connecting both hemisphere of our brain. While the right hemisphere is creative and the left hemisphere is literal. Imagining and thinking about our goals provokes our right hemisphere, however when we process those thoughts onto paper our left hemisphere connects our goals literally to our commitment.

So think about where you are right now along your RN journey. Where do you see your career heading? What kind of education is required? What professional organizations should you join? How are you utilizing your opportunities to network or seek a mentor? Where would you like to work – in a particular state, practice setting, non-profit vs profit, teaching vs non-teaching? These are just a few of several questions to consider. As you jot down additional questions and begin brainstorming here are a few additional steps: 

  • detailed/specific goals
  • time specific/realistically achievable
  • list three action plans for each goal

Thank you for being here right now reading this blog post! Happy Sunday!
