Stay Focused And Motivated

•    Take a deep breath
•    Reframe your situation.  Ask yourself how can I make the most of this situation.
•    Prioritize:  What is important, what will be urgent, what can you put off, what can you delegate and what can you let go.
•    Look at the bigger picture.  Nothing is all bad.  What can you be happy about, thankful about.
•    Connect with others and ask for help.
•    Drop “should” and “must” from your vocabulary.

 

5 jobs the robots will take last

I recently spoke to Yvonne Le Roux of Elite Employment about upskilling and how that can help you land the job rather than the other candidate (listen to the interview here), but what if the other candidate is a robot?

Hey, it's a serious question, as AdAge.com says "at some level, every job can (and will) be done by machine. It is not a question of if; it is just a question of when". There is some good news though, as even they admit that there are some jobs that will be a little harder for the robots to take than others, so if you are looking at learning new skills (or even planning a new career) here is author Shelly Palmer's list of The 5 Jobs Robots Will Take Last.

Oh, and if you're worried about the security of your job, here is the list of The 5 Jobs The Robots Will Take First, I thought I'd be safe but it seems I'm on the second list and that in Japan they already have robot newsreaders.

 

When it comes to skills...

  • Proper communication is one of the most important, and sought after skills
  • Other basic skills looked for are being well read and having a good general knowledge/being informed
  • Namibia faces a massive skills shortage so the more skills you have the more in control you will be and the more you can call the shots
  • Sometimes gaining skills means getting in at the bottom and working your way up
  • BUT thanks to technology it is a lot easier to gain skills these days than it once was
