We are living through major changes.
The internet is influencing all sectors in its path, with more fundamental changes coming as it matures.
If we are not aware, we will fall behind.
So what should we be aware of?
Here are 3 Things:
1. Any rote task will have great pressure of being automated.
Rote knowledge work is being quickly replaced by A.I. and crowdsourcing. So if you think your job is rote in any way then consider the next point.
2. The New Jobs Will Involve Working Well With Machines
Machines are excellent at finding the local minimum. Give them a closed environment and they thrive. But they need a human to point them to worthwhile problems and set up that environment. If you can do that, you will thrive.
3. The Talent Pool is Now Global, So Be The Best By Doubling Down On Your Strengths
Being average is no longer enough. You now have to be the best at what you do. And you can only be good enough if you go towards what you like and what you’re good at. You won’t have the stamina to be the best without these two.
These are just a few things that are changing in the new economy, there are a ton more and I plan to add those as I go along!
