I come across many individuals on daily basis that work but still wander through life. Some enjoy what they are currently doing and can live on that with their family. It happened that many even derived joy in settling for what they have currently. The thinking is not bad but it may cause a damage in the nearest future.
Let us ponder on these questions together🤷🏾♂️
1. What is the feasibility of your skill in the next 5years?
2. Will demand increase for what I know currently or it is vanishing to a thin air?
3. With my current knowledge can I compete favourably with my mate globally?
4. Do I have the capacity to keep my existing market and expand to a new space?
5. Won’t machines and technology take over from me in the coming years and leave me stranded for life?
6.Do I have the capacity to embrace current development so as to increase productivity and increase efficiency?
7. Do I like the current stage of my life?
8. Am I prepared for what the future holds?
These are the questions that came into my head early this morning.
It appears to me that the world has metamorphosed into a global village and the power to remain relevant lies in the learning and acquisition of the needed skills to strive in the quick changing world. Learning is indeed a naked Profession that exposes your inabilities in due time.
I have seen more older folks that complain about structural unemployment. It baffles me a lot why an accountant of 21st century as an example dump the pain of learning the required accounting packages which are readily available to increase his skills and still settle for traditional methods. We see this in our day to day walk through life. We do fail to realise “the pain of learning is a gain of fortune”.
The place of learning is never too emphasised. It is a known fact that you can become all you want to , provided you are ready to go through the pain of learning(Naked Profession). Learning serves as a propeller which transfer an individual from a stage of mediocrity either to improve or to achieve excellence.
I grew up to ascertain the fact that (s)he who fail to learn at a younger age is definitely postponing the learning process to a future period and that may come in an unfavourable manner(Expose you). Even I was made to understand that learning is a continuous process. I’m glad to tell you that (s)he who fail to learn is actually learning to slow down his/her chances of prosperity. So why are we then slowing down the rate of learning?
Now let me ask you , WHAT ARE YOU LEARNING ?🙇🏿♂️
Don’t let your lack of Learning expose(naked) you oneday …..
