A short post from me today, but a thought I think many of us forget…
For many of us, when we leave compulsory education that’s it, we’re done. Many of us choose to venture into college, 6th form, and university study, but that’s not always for everyone. To keep creativity flowing we should be challenging ourselves and exploring new territory. Right now, i’m on a serious healthy eating regime and I’m working hard at the gym for that summer bod… but I’m teaching myself all over again (with the help from some pals) how to eat well, eat right and nourish my body with the things that it needs.
I’ve learnt that when it comes to a work life, you can seriously succeed if you challenge yourself or are challenged by others. Working in a team is great, and being able to support one another is one of the great benefits of teamwork – but this doesn’t exist everywhere for one reason or another. If you’re working in a small team, you need to remind yourself to keep your hand in the knowledge pool and stay on top of the trends in your niche’s world. Whether it’s investing your personal time and money, sourcing free online courses, maybe going back into some form of education or party time study, remember it’s never too late to learn new skills or build upon the ones you already have.
What will this do for you?
If you work in a large team, knowledge of a new product, platform, venture or experience could propel you into stardom and identify you as a forward thinker within a team of employees. When it comes to promotion, or recognition you might be identified as the star who deserves praise.
Learning something new sparks new ideas, urges us to achieve more and stimulates your creativity. Doing the same thing day in and day out can ultimately get a little boring, so by challenge yourself to complete new tasks, by learning a new craft that you can implement could boost your creativity, switch up your daily duties, and help business get booming.
Keep your heart in the game of doing well and doing good and your head will follow. If you take interest in what you do, the company you work for or the service or product they provide, then you wont have to consider taking the time to become an expert in your field, you’ll already be passionate and keen to do so.
