CTP or Creative Thinking Tools is a website that provides content for students to access. It is a collection of resources to promote self-awareness, self-motivation, and constructive problem solving. The site contains video and written examples of creative thinking. I hope you find the material interesting and useful.
CTP is one of those sites that works best when you’re trying to make a decision or plan for the future. I use it whenever I want to take stock of what I have accomplished and whether I’m going to continue to learn or not. One of the most insightful and important things I do on the site is to analyze the things that are important to me, the things I am passionate about, and what I am looking for in a job.
Another great tool on ctp is to write down your “dream” job, think about the possibilities, and then write down the best possible job that could fit those abilities. This is especially important for a career in anything creative, but especially true for a career in software.
There are some great blog posts on ctp about how to approach your dream job, but the single best way to do this is to look at the job description on the ctp site. In addition, if you have a job description in your head, then list down the job you would really like to do, and then list down the job that could fit those skills.
You get the idea, but be careful. If you’re not careful, the job description will be too abstract. In order to be truly creative, you’ll have to go back through your list and find the job that looks most similar to what you want to do, without having to actually apply for it.
That’s what I did. I put together a list of my skills and the skills that could actually fit in with them. In the end, I had a list of 23 jobs I can take care of with a computer, and then I listed all the jobs that would match the skills I had in mind. It took me like three days, but I think it was worth it.
This is also the same approach I used for the list of job that I should be working at. The thing is, if you want to do something creative, you’ll actually have to do it, but you don’t have to start by trying to apply for jobs, just by looking it up on your own.
I’m not sure I’m taking this seriously enough. I know that there are companies out there that are hiring, but I also have to admit that I do know a few. I can’t say I have any friends who do.
If you want to be creative, you have to be creative. And if you are creative, you have to be a part of the creative process. If you dont’ have the creativity, you can’t do anything creative. You just have to get it done. You cant do anything creative if you dont’ have the creativity for it.
That is a good point. For years I’ve been working on new ways to make my life easier. I’ve gotten a lot better at what I do, and I’m able to do more and more work at it.
