Read this article on LinkedIn and it got me thinking…
It reminded me of the aptitude test i took way back in school to figure out my strong and weak skill sets and make a career choice basis the outcome. I clearly remember having scored below average in the creative section and it just shook my idea of myself.
Well i am presently in a field which i consider creative, marketing. I tried to be an engineer which was supposed to be a befitting career for me but you don’t wanna know how that went 😛
But i still can’t get this thought out of my mind. can we train ourselves to be creative?! and if so, who can measure if i am more creative than the rest? because for me i can be creative while making a cup of tea or snoozing the morning alarm or even for calling in sick for work! I think there are kinds of being creative and one should be very clear about it before talking or discussing about it.
i have my reasons.
