She says, I believe some infinities are worthy challenges: Millman is a well-known author, graphic designer, brand manager, and radio host. According to Daniel H. He learns that the left hemisphere of the brain controls logic, sequence, and text, while the right hemisphere innovates and creates, seeing the big picture and interpreting metaphors.
Instead, he proposes, the jobs of the future will involve more creative activities, careers that focus on innovation and the human touch. He explains that developing these skills will aid in making your professional skills more unique and desirable—an important investment in this economic climate.
In downtown Philadelphia, Pink finds the Charter High School of Architecture and Designa public high school that focuses upon art and design while also providing students with a more traditional education.
Eighty percent of these inner-city students—one-third of which could read and do math at a third-grade level upon entering the school—will go on to enroll in two- and four-year schools, including some of the most prestigious art schools in the nation.
Freelancing for the electoral board. Storytelling is another important tool for future personal and professional success.

What do entrepreneurs, painters, inventors, and classical music conductors all have in common? They all exercise symphony. To develop his sense of symphony, Pink takes a class in right-brained drawing.
Pink also encourages those who have trouble with this sense to listen to classical music, think of solutions to new problems, and simply brainstorm to see how the mind connects seemingly disparate ideas.
Do you feel the urge to yawn when someone else does? Have you ever cried over the evening news? No, you are not a sissy; you are empathetic. Empathy transcends culture and country; Pink cites studies showing that expressions and emotions have an inherent, universal meaning, explaining that across linguistic, geographic, and physical divides, we all have the same needs and desires.
Play is another overlooked but important trait in right-brainers. Pink journeys to Mumbai, India, to participate in a laughter club. The idea is that every morning before work, clubs congregate to laugh for half an hour—and such clubs are gaining in international popularity. Videogames are also becoming more eminent.

Moreover, as our society becomes more abundant, we have the time and means to pursue deeper meaning. In the search for joyfulness, Pink suggest, try displaying gratitude; you could write a letter thanking someone for something, anything, they have done to impact your life, or you could dedicate your work silently or openly to someone you admire.
Another way to implement the search for meaning on a regular basis is to plan a certain day off, or even just a quiet moment or two, to enjoy yourself and to think about who you are, what you want to do, and the steps you can take to get there.
Perhaps the most useful parts of the book are the end-of-chapter exercises Pink suggests to implement the practices he discusses. A good rule of thumb is to do as the professionals do: Immerse yourself in a more creative world, Pink advises, and you will carve out a niche for yourself in the ever-evolving job market.
However, for the lower-tech among us, he also recommends books on relevant topics. As Bennett Pejian environmental designer, writes in The Essential Principles of Graphic Design, Surround yourself with good people who tell good stories about other good people.
