As looking for a career, we are concerned of the economy, however, what will happen to our career oppurtinities if we shift to a fully sustainable and social economy?
This is the future that we are all heading towards. #business #entrepreneurship #government #anthropology
There will always be a need for people to maintain and create services and products, no matter how automated our society becomes. As Paul mentioned, you should continue learning as much as possible so that you have flexibility to choose what you want when you enter the workplace, even if that work environment has drastically changed by that time. Speaking from personal experience, I did not, and still do not know my exact career path, but I choose to learn about anything that interests me, even if it doesn't have a direct impact on my current ability to work - I am placing bets against the future that things I learn, while possibly not relevant today, could be of extreme use in the future. For instance, I work as a Software Engineer who works on graphics and has a primarily graphics/backend-based background, but I am trying to learn about Machine Learning and AI -- even though it won't help me right now in my day-to-day job, I am betting it will be a huge part of my career in the future.

Hi Joshua! Thanks for a very relevant question. I suggest expanding your mindset and your skill sets. A 21st Century mindset is about being financially self reliant, more self aware, more flexible, less problem solving thinking and more intentional focus on desired outcomes relying more on emotional energy alignment and inspired imagination. Suggest watching some you tube videos by Robert Kiyosaki, Kyle Cease, Mike Dooley and Jack Daly Part 1 :-) Paul
