One of the biggest complaints regarding the age of technology is that people are no longer creative and interesting. While that might be true in some cases, technology has provided a huge platform for creative people like never before. According to some studies, creativity is among the top-ranked skills that employers are looking for and by 2020 it will be a listed skill in job notifications.
A recent survey also revealed that CEOs of top companies across the world valued creativity as an essential leadership skill. Considering the value placed on creativity, aspiring professionals need to assess what they can and cannot do about it.
Technology As A Learning Tool
If parents are turning to technology to help their children learn and acquire new skills then adults need to be able to do it as well. So, how does one capitalize on technology to make it work for you:
- Technology needn’t be a distraction for people. It can be an ideal distraction if you know how to train your mind to use it appropriately. For instance, if you are looking at a way in which to populate content on your website, a game of Tetris will be of no use to you. However, checking out trending blogs online like TheMarketingHeaven will give you the much-needed push.
- Apps and websites are constantly trying to improve their user experience. If a website or app you love has gone through a makeover, don’t let it deter you from using the app or site. Enjoy the change, learn the new tricks and hacks and immerse yourself in the new experience.
- Work and Play don’t need to be enemies. Creative people are known to mix work and play. While some people prefer a clear distinction between the two. It doesn’t always have to be the case. It’s possible to have fun while working.
- Technology can help your procrastination. If you’ve decided that you need to write 2000 words a day, there are apps and trackers to help you do that. So, if you need to get an idea and have a deadline – use apps that will help you set reminders and customize them to help push you.
