    Memancing Kreativitas 

    Berapa kali Anda merasa otak tiba-tiba kosong dan tidak tahu harus melakukan apa, yang sialnya selalu terjadi saat Anda dikejar deadline laporan yang harus diberikan pada atasan? Bukan hanya itu, Anda tidak bisa menulis apa-apa karena tidak ada bayangan apa yang harus ditulis, sehingga hanya mampu menatap kertas kosong dengan perasaan tak berdaya. Ups, jangan panik dulu. Ini kukan pertanda Anda mulai pikun (dan percaya deh, Anda tidak mengidap penyakit Alzheimer yang menyerang secara mendadak). Bisa jadi, hal ini disebabkan karena Anda harus mulai menyesuaikan diri dengan keadaan baru tersebut.
    Jadi bagi Anda yang mungkin saat ini sedang pusing karena terlalu sibuk, istirahat dulu sebentar dan simak artikel berikut. Siapa tahu akan membantu.

    1. Lakukan pada waktu yang tepat
    Kebanyakan orang yang telah berumur berpikir lebih jernih pada pagi hari; sedangkan mereka yang lebih muda, pada siang hari. Temukan kapan waktu Anda yang tepat, dan selesaikan masalah-masalah yang memerlukan pemikiran di waktu-waktu tersebut.

    2. Pendidikan tinggi — namun jangan terlalu berlebihan
    Pendidikan sekolah memiliki pengaruh besar dalam memupuk kreativitas seseorang terutama pada masa-masa akhir kuliah, namun penaruh tersebut mulai menurun setelah lulus. Pendidikan memang sangat penting, namun hal itu tidak menjamin kesuksesan Anda di bidang tersebut (alias banyak hal-hal lain yang harus diperhatikan).

    3. Mengikuti nasehat Konfusius
    salah satu petunjuk mengingat yang selalu digunakan oleh para ahli yang melakukan penelitian tentang ingatan : Supaya tidak lupa bila ada hal penting, tulis di secarik kertas. Sebagaimana kata pepatah Cina, tulisan yang tintanya tidak jelas bertahan lebih lama daripada ingatan paling kuat sekalipun.

    4. Tampil bersemangat dengan doping
    Penelitian menunjukkan kadar kafein dalam secangkir kopi dapat membantu kita berkonsentrasi terhadap sesuatu hal dengan lebih baik. Namun bagi Anda yang rentan atau mudah terkena depresi, sebaiknya jauhkan diri dari sentuhan kopi karena akan berakibat buruk bagi sel-sel otak.

    REASONS FOR CAREER SWITCHING 

    The reasons for wanting to switch careers range from the practical to the idealistic. Most likely your list will include many of these factors:

    • You have a chance to escape a fast-lane urban lifestyle.
    • Your job and career no longer interest you; maybe they bore you.
    • The idea of 20 more years in the same career has lost its appeal.
    • You would like to work in a different part of the country.
    • You’ve been downsized, fired, canned, pinked-slipped, or whatever you—and your former employer—want to call it.
    • You see little room for future growth in your current career.
    • You feel a “calling” to do something else in life.

    How to take a Personal Career Interest Survey ? 

    office1.jpg

    Most people don’t know enough about all their available options to make informed career decisions. To remedy that deficit, you’ll need to do some market research:

    1. Start by making a general list of your personal and professional interests. Don’t omit any options because of preconceived notions about a field or industry.

    2. Write down your number one interest and then consider it carefully. What is it about that area that most fascinates you? For example, a woman who loves cooking realized she’s particularly drawn to desserts because they appeal to both her sense of artistry and her sweet tooth.

    3. Explore your interest more deeply, by researching the following:

    Companies that produce related products or services

    Schools that teach related skills

    Types of jobs related to your interest

    Names of specific people who work in the field

    4. Set up an action plan—complete with realistic goals and timetables—to meet (or at least talk on the phone with) people who work in your targeted interest area. In your discussions, try to learn as much as possible about what these professionals are doing. Also ask for referrals to people working in related fields. After each meeting, take careful notes to consolidate your learning; then set new exploration goals.

    5. When you’ve completed your research, listen to your gut. Does pursuing your targeted field still seem to be an exciting idea? If so, figure out what steps you’ll have to take to become a qualified candidate in that field.

    6. If your answer is a more cautious “maybe,” determine what else you need to know to make an informed career decision. Then, make it your goal to get that data.

    7. If you decide that your top interest doesn’t translate into viable career options, return to your list to determine your second, third, and even fourth choices. Then repeat the exploratory process until you find a promising direction.

    8. If you’re still undecided after several rounds of this process, think more creatively about ways to combine your interests. The prospective pastry chef, for example, had a seemingly conflicting interest in weight management. By tying together her two interests,she developed a specialty in low-fat desserts.
