“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” – Alvin Toffler
I found this quote very much true. It is becoming more and more important in today’s work environment for employees and organizations to change their traditional mind-set and evolve.
Have you seen people who are worried about their jobs as the technology they know is now obsolete? People had been working very hard and did not focus on upgrading their skills as market was going through change.
I want to stress that you are in charge of your learning opportunities. It may be soft skills, new language, new technology, new way of doing things or any combination of things that will keep us marketable in this century. We got to be flexible in terms of learning new things, unlearning of old concepts and some times relearning of (back to basics) concepts.
Thanks and have a great day!
