Intuitive Work, Analytical Work

Make two lists. In one name as many tasks as you can that have to do with the more intuitive, right-brain aspect in your particular mode of creative work. In the other list, name all the analytical, left-brained tasks you can think of. Now, on a large sheet of paper, try to draw a map of how your creative process works. Form a timeline and insert all the tasks from both columns where they seem to fall most of the time.
