The economy is suffering and jobs are disappearing. Take action now, think Enrich! and apply the FLIP process.
We are worried, the government has announced further restrictions to protect the nation from a further peak of the virus or otherwise called “the second wave!” Unfortunately more people will be hit from these restrictions and more jobs will disappear and the big question is if they will ever come back or do we need to seriously consider to re-skill many citizens? and how many would they be? and from which age group should be start? or should we segment them by potential? or by economical needs? This will be a titanic work, just to start thinking about it, imagine what it will look like if we start working on it and who will pay for it? where will the funding come from? Will the corporations take the lead in terms of assessing future skills needs and defining possible new curriculums or should the government have a larger role while defining the national agenda? I personally think we need to start thinking and subsequently start acting…. the job market will change, or it has already changed and if we want to thrive we need to assess our talents against the needs of the economy and address the relevant changes that will emerge. We will need to act fast, because we need ride the wave, before we will miss it and just be hit it from it.
I see the post pandemic as an opportunity for many to skill up and move on into what could be a more fulfilling life, I advise whoever comes to my practice to see it as an opportunity, to put themselves out there and come out refreshed and ready for a prompt start.
I keep on using the FLIP process to keep on investing on myself and I also share it with my friends and family, in case some of them could find themselves in doubts about where they stand today and what the future ahead could look like. Enrich!
I think we should look at this crisis as an opportunity to reset and start again, which it does not happen often in life….. a second chance with a bit more of experience and wisdom is a wave to catch, and if we do not know how to surf, it is time to learn how to surf.
