Let’s get rid of the mumbo jumbo that I’ve been complaining about. When you cut to the chase, people are saying that to succeed at generating income in the future (my words - ‘they’ call them ’jobs’), you will need to be (in no particular order);
☯ Ethical ☯ Compassionate ☯ Principled ☯ Engaging ☯ Agile ☯ Adaptable ☯ Moral ☯ Analytical ☯ Thoughtful ☯ Authentic ☯ Flexible ☯ Creative ☯ Transparent ☯ Listening ☯ Value-driven ☯ Innovative ☯ Entrepreneurial ☯
.. to name just a personally selected few. While I don’t disagree, isn’t that what we have always needed? Don’t we need those values right now? I mean the future is already here. It’s been here for at least 27 years!
“The future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed.”
~William Gibson (1993)

Next week, for your delectation, we move on to discuss ‘The Future of Jobs’ and what I think they might be! And for those that have been following, I will move on to the ‘Future of Income’ the following week!

This firm offers $1000 to NOT go to college. Have a look, it's long overdue.
They posit the modern baccalaureate in Kinesiology, Art History, Classics, or Theater Arts are far more than worthless to future earning since, in addition, they come with an average of $35K in debt at graduation and, often, two broke parents.
As the saying goes:
"If you know how to earn college won't help;
If you don't know how to earn, college won't help."
I'm encouraged. The modern university is broad, institutional theft. Despite bucolic settings, most all are hubs of breathtaking corruption and political indoctrination.
