As you deal with constant change, there are essential skills that will help improve your future prospects.
Focusing on skill improvement is important if you want to stay relevant in years to come. Those who do not develop skills may not be as valuable, while dealing with a world that does not exist.
Over the last couple of decades, change has disrupted industries, with many of them no longer existing. This disruption has led to new industries or markets starting up.
Examples of industries or markets disrupted or starting up include:
- Online streaming services such as Netflix, Stan and Amazon Prime.
- Social media platforms.
- Transportation services such as Uber and Lyft.
- Hospitality with companies such as Airbnb.
- Photography with the introduction of mobile devices.
With industries or businesses needing to change to stay competitive in the twenty-first century, you and I are no different.
We must know the essential skills we have to develop to stay relevant years to come.
