Is your career future-proof? Some suggest we are going through the third industrial revolution with digitisation. Others suggest professionals will be replaced by telepresence and artificial intelligence. Are you ready for the disruption of such changes?
Everything that happens to you is your teacher.
The secret is to learn to sit at the feet of your own life and be taught by it.
~ Polly B. Berends
I’ve talked about the importance of sleep for your brain, before today. But let’s take it a bit further. A recent report shows that leadership skill is hampered by sleep deprivation. That means organisations may be at risk if insomnia prevails.
I think the kind of landscape that you grew up in, it lives with you. I don’t think it’s true of people who’ve grown up in cities so much; you may love a building, but I don’t think that you can love it in the way that you love a tree or a river or the colour of the earth; it’s a different kind of love.
~ Arundhati Roy
In the twenty-first century, change is part of life. Some suggest the pace of it is too fast, the content of change too much. Are you driving change in your industry? Perhaps not, but you should be the designated driver of your career when that change comes.
Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence. And it is fragile. It can be blackened by fear and superstition.
~ Bernard Beckett
