I learned in college psychology there are two types of thinkers; Convergent and Divergent.
Now the Convergent thinker is logical, takes the linear approach, and is really good at getting things done.
Being a Divergent thinker has had me starting lots of projects in the past, but then having so many irons in the fire I never get back to finishing the first one. No, it's not procrastination, but that something else has just captured my attention. I have finally found that the key for me is to travel with a notepad and make lists. Jot down the new thought, new idea, song lyric, invention, what-have-you, instead of being distracted from the moment. Then later I can revisit the new thought at a more appropriate time instead of just following through on the "Next Great Idea."
Divergent thinking-great for ideas, not so great for getting things done. But then of course, I'm the one who suggests using my high-heel to pound nails when there is no hammer at hand. I'm adaptable and people find me entertaining because they never know what I will say....sometimes I don't even know what is going to come out of my mouth. (And I think I'd like a career in Public Speaking?)
Anyway, that's the walk part of the name....Seems like I'm off on a tangent....but about the Sparrow part...
"Bird-walk" was already taken, and I first thought of ChickWalk because I'm a female bird-walker, but it seemed too cutesy and trite. Suddenly, I woke up a 2 AM with "Sparrow Walk". The sparrow of the Bible is a most insignificant creature, and yet God still takes note when one falls from the sky. He keeps everything on track. I find this is especially true for me. He provides the discipline and direction lacking in my nature, and keeps this small Sparrow constantly in His eye. I find under His direction, I can actually accomplish change in my small corner of the world.
Well there you have it-- Sparrow Walk. What kind of thinker are you? I make no apologies for my thoughts. Let me hear yours.
