For decades, Micah Raskin has learned how to be creative and pursue his wildest dreams, and he now teaches these tips to people around the country. Finding your dream job often starts with becoming creative, and living a life of constant learning.
The first tip Micah Raskin offers clients is to avoid mental burnout.
“When you get tired, you need rest, but people never seem to treat their brains the same way,” explained Micah Raskin. “If you burn out mentally, you need to refuel. You put out, only what you put in, it’s that simple.”
Micah Raskin recommends finding something like TED to keep your mind stimulated and to avoid burnout.
TED, (Technology, Education and Design) is one of the leading pioneers in creating formats for people to learn, engage, and practice the art of learning together. Learning has been a lost art form, and organizations like TED are revitalizing the way we come together and recharge.
Another tip Micah Raskin offers clients is to put what you learn into practice, as often as you can.
Today, there are hundreds of apps like Evernote, Trello and Harvest that aid people with time tracking, and productivity. People busier than ever as a culture with organizing data, yet we retain less of it than ever before. We give ourselves little to no time to actually put into practice what we are learning.
Micah Raskin encourages people to spend time daily taking in new information, and putting it into practice. Most great ideas start to form when you are practicing and memorizing new information you are learning.
“I try and remind all of my clients that you need to learn to be a creative 24 hours a day, instead of when it’s convenient or when you find success,” explained Micah Raskin. “Living a life where you are constantly learning and practicing will ensure that you are meeting the goals you are setting for yourself.”
Although it’s hard work to focus on becoming more creative, it’s worth the time you put into it now so that you can ultimately find success in the future.
Micah Raskin encourages everyone to start practicing becoming more creative on a daily basis because putting in the work now will yield great results in the future.
