The bad news is that jobs are disappearing.
That's nothing new.
The good news is that jobs are disappearing.
That's something new.
Why's that new?
Because with more and more jobs disappearing we all get the chance to get a completely new set of cards.
And this time it doesn't really matter anymore where you're from.
What your passport says.
Or how much money your family has.
Here's the truth...
To get a good job all of the above mattered.
It might have been the only things that really mattered.
Because to get a good job you needed degrees.
And the only way to get degrees was to have some or all of the above.
Like it or not, but that was the reality.
But things are changing.
Faster than most people are willing to accept...
In the old days, if you had none of the above, then you had it ten times harder than someone who had all of the above to get a good education.
But today it's different.
All you need today is the willingness to learn new things.
To apply what you've learned.
To fail at applying what you've learned.
To get back up again.
To learn the lessons of your failure.
To apply your lessons learned.
And to try again until it works.
Essentially all you need today is the willingness to fail, to get back up again, to adapt and to try again until it works.
And that's the really good news.
Because everybody can do that.
But not everybody will do that...
