There’s No Going Back!

“Robots and computers will own any clearly bounded job, skill, or game. Humans should focus on creative work.” @naval Ravikant

This statement truthfully sums up my beliefs and why I’ve become an advocate for requiring the learning of the language/s of TECHNOLOGY.

Regardless of your political, social, religious, etc. beliefs…change is the only constant and technology will continue to have an ever increasing impact on the economic landscape. There are opportunities being created today that weren’t more than a thought to a handful of individuals only 5-years ago.

There Is No Going Back!

Don’t wait on some person or policy to save you from what will happen in the future. Discoveries in technology have always led us forward and eliminated what was once thought of as innovative. To keep pace, we must evolve into ‘Learning Beings’. We must embrace our ability to turn our minds and talents to a thing with focus and discover ways to mold it to our will. We must keep up or be prepared to be left way behind.

There Is No Going Back!
