Author and St. Louis native Bill Donius tells us about a method that can help you get those occasional "Aha moments" to happen much more frequently…a method that's as easy as switching your pen from one hand to the other. He says it's all about learning how to use your whole brain, including your right brain – the side of your brain that's often ignored as left brain logic takes over answering most of our daily questions.

It was successful for hundreds of volunteers who tried it out before he wrote his book, Thought Revolution: How to Unlock Your Inner Genius; volunteers that included executives from Express Scripts, Enterprise Rent-a-Car and Clear Channel Broadcasting. Business leaders are now taking his findings into the workplace to try to unlock innovative ideas from the right hemisphere of employees' minds.
