We like certainty in all sphere of life be it friends, family or job. The certainty that we have on the account of doing the same work for years makes us feel that things will never change. This lulls us into believing that we will forever carry out doing the same job .
Unfortunately, the world during our parent’s youth was much simpler than today.Technologies can change the whole way we look at the world. A secure profession may be unsecured because of the way business models rapidly change.
There is no way, we can protect ourselves from these changes. They are happening too fast for us to perceive. The only thing we can do is not to take anything granted. We should not depend just on what is giving us our money. We should always keep an eye on changes. That means learning new things, moving to new locations and meeting entirely different set of people.
If we have got too comfortable, we should do something that helps us move out of our comfort zone. That will ensure that we are at least prepared for future uncertainties and our knowledge levels high enough to survive any technological obsolescence.
Let the lull not fool us, as there is a storm in waiting.
