Watched the news lately? People are confronted with such a tsunami of change, they can’t process it all. Who of us can?
People all over the world are seeing their jobs eliminated through automation. These jobs aren’t the victim of globalisation alone. Hamburgers are going to be flipped by robots, trucks will be driven by software, and for just about every job humans do manually, there’s a programmer computer-modeling a solution.
Let’s be honest. Unless you own a factory that builds robots, and is staffed by robots, the future can sound a bit scary.
But what if there were possibilities inside these changes? And what if the world, and your business, was rife with opportunities? Deep down we know it’s true.
Enterprise will always need what only humans can offer. (My apologies to any artificial intelligence reading this, and please forgive me for calling you artificial.) But to tap into your potential you must face reality and search for a better way to live and work. In other words, our view of the future can be apocalyptic or optimistic.
We can’t go back to the way things used to be. And if we want to, we’re missing opportunities—personally and in business.
