Humanity has seen more technological progress in the last 100 years than in the previous several thousand. Because of this, the skills that today’s occupations demand are constantly evolving. People are working jobs today that did not exist 20 years ago; colleges currently prepare students for future jobs which don’t exist today.
We now need to be able to juggle dozens of tasks and prioritize them accordingly, while maintaining deadlines which extend beyond our work hours. Technology has made working from home not just a possibility but a necessity in many cases. In today’s world, you can work from anywhere while communicating daily with colleagues around the world.
As this trend continues, we must keep our skills current and relevant through continuous professional development and education. Luckily, the Internet offers a variety of resources to assist us in our quest for knowledge. Websites such as Coursera, Udemy, and Khan Academy offer both free and paid courses on almost any subject you could possibly imagine. This allows you to study and learn independently without interfering with life’s obligations.
By using every waking moment as a chance to excel, we do our part to ensure that the world around us continues to evolve on a daily basis.
