Can you stay alive in the next thirty years??
Will you be able to live or you'll prefer suicide from frustration?
What can prompt that?? What do I mean??
Alright! Let me explain myself.
In this digital age, we can notice how rapid technology is improving. Technology is taking over many things. We don't type again, we can talk to our phone assistant. We don't need to go to school again, there's eLearning. We don't need to go to market, we can order online. All these and lots more makes it evident that technology is taking charge.
"The great growling engine of change - technology." Alvin Toffler said.
You have a phone, you can use it, that's not all! As a matter of fact, phones are becoming a burden to carry about.
So, let's imagine the next 30 years. Close your eyes and think about it. We are already in the fifth generation where AI is been used. Imagine how distributive AI will be in the next 30 years.
How can one stay relevant? How can we stay alive? How will we survive??
Firstly, keep updating yourself. You have a phone, learn or know something new at least once in a week or month. Don't stay stagnant. Keep learning! Keep getting knowledge.
Secondly, be digital literate. Have a digital skill. Records are no more kept on papers that can get misplaced or lost. People may no longer visit shops to buy things. Services can be ordered for online and home delivery takes place. You need to be digital literate to stay alive in the coming years.
"The technology you use impresses no one. The experience you create with it is everything." Sean Gerety
Thirdly, stay connected. You need to stay connected with family and friends for survival. Also, value every customer you meet. One can be easily replaced with machines, find friends online, purchase online. You need people around you for your primary clients or customers. You need people around you for recommendation. You can also get friends and market online, right? Of course! But one at hand is better than ten in the bush.
To avoid depression, to prevent frustration, to ensure relevance - You need to apply what you've read, not just sigh or look through.
"Don't let mental blocks control you. Set yourself free. Confront your fear and turn the mental blocks into building blocks." Dr Roopleen said.
