Boost your intelligence through a lateral career assignment.
Learning itself makes you smarter, according to Ken Bain, author of “What the Best College Students Do.”
The habit of expecting to learn, which leads to putting yourself in situations where you’ll be challenged, learn, and grow, actually rewires your brain to help you learn faster and better.
That’s why you feel ‘brain dead’ as you molder in the same job with the same responsibilities, and likely with the same results.
If your workplace is not open to a lateral move, construct one on your own time. Choose a skill — such as learning the underpinnings of a popular content management system — or a business experience — such as fundraising — you’d like to master. As you gain traction with this developmental self-assignment, you’ll not only act smarter. You’ll be smarter, too.
