In today’s world technology creates an incredible amount of convenience. By doing the mundane tasks, it allows people to focus on the meaningful decisions that steer the course of our future.
Vulnerability and Technology:
The caveat, is when this technology makes its way into our careers. In a place where having all the answers determines our worth, technology leaves us vulnerable. ‘Will technology be smarter than me? Will I lose my job to it? I don’t understand it, so how am I supposed to use it? I’ve done things this way for years and it’s worked, why change?’
Failure and success in today’s world will be determined by our frame of mind. While the technological shift is inevitable how we face it is key. It’s called having a beginners mind and it is the answer to overcoming the digital transformation. This vulnerable position, formerly seen as a weakness, is now one of the biggest strengths a professional can have. Shown here within one of our Core Values;
The Day We Stop Learning, We Cease To Exist
With a beginners mind, overcoming an obstacle is the reason for which we exist. By simply changing our mindset, fear turns into curiosity and growth. The very problems that used to result in frustration, change to excitement. Knowing those solutions are a step closer to a place where life gets better.
Yes jobs will be replaced with technology. But only those filled by people with old mental paradigms. For those willing to learn, this era will bring incredible opportunities, skills, and a renewed energy toward life.
The digital transformation is far greater than technology alone. It’s a culture. The real competitive advantage is not the 1’s and 0’s, it’s the collaborative effort toward creative solutions. Embracing change and relentlessly adopting new systems.
Change is no longer what happens when things go wrong. It is the goal.
