Are You a Scanner?

You don’t have a creative block – in fact, you have too many creative ideas. So many that it’s hard to decide. You may start on a huge project, get halfway through and start something else. Why can’t you follow through and complete what you started? Why are you sabotaging yourself? Are you a failure?

Actually, you may be a “scanner“. A term coined by author and speaker Barbara Scher, this definition includes many people, who may lack confidence, support, clarity and the skills to set goals and get focused on finishing a project. Most of this is due to fear. In fact, it’s so prevalent that Oprah recently featured an article by Barbara on the topic.

  1. I may be a scanner – or a homeschooler… I know! I’m a homeschoolaner! This is so me (just look at my other website for proof!) But I have lacked some focus…each step forward causes an examination of where I am going! But I will not quit! Thanks for introducing us to Barbara!
