Trends You Just Have To Embrace
12 Certainties That Will Transform Every Career and Create New Ones from Big Think
Daniel Burrus’ post is a must-read for everyone! These are three questions he asks you to answer:
“Do I do a repetitive task?”
“What knowledge and skills can I learn that will supplement my current strengths so that I can thrive in the years ahead?”
“What are the new areas of learning that will make me more relevant in a world of rapid change?”
The changes in work and jobs are happening much faster today and Burrus makes some really interesting points on why these 12 areas will eliminate most of our jobs (and create new ones we aren’t qualified for…yet!)
