If you look at the best people in every industry, job, or occupation anywhere in the world, you will notice that there is one thing that they do consistently, incessantly, and effectively. They engineer their evolution.
To pick at and blame the circumstances, the weather, your spouse, the economy, the competition, the politicians, the robots, and the social media for all the bad things that are happening in your business, career, and life is like saying, "Poor me, I have no control and maybe just curl up at home and stay safe!"
We can all do more than that!
The best competent people I know have used their assets to become the epitome of their best bankable selves, especially in the future.
The future of work is about the unique offering, abilities, and massive differentiation. To stand out in the sea of gig workers, part-time hobbyists, and Alexas, it is not just incumbent upon the professionals to be the best but also be the top 2% of the pyramid.
Standardization, conformity, and harmonization are a thing of the past. The new worker is an agile maven with multiple skills and competencies that can run around robots and machines out of their batteries. This new worker has high-touch qualities that eliminate the isolation in the customer experience and puts back the human intelligence missing in many transactions.
Work will no longer be a division between your social time, family time, and paying activities. These activities will become wrapped around within the lifestyle and talents of the individual. The remote will dominate the marketplace, and new products and services will serve this new arrangement which represents every other individual outside the cubicle norm.
The most evolved will win big in this new wide world of work.
