Human Survival in a Computer Run World

People are starting to worry.  They see their jobs going, not overseas, rather to computers.  Many are fearing the day when computers have the full-time jobs, and people work project to project, known as gigs.

Many do not like the idea of not working for someone full time.  There are worries over how people will obtain what are now known as standard benefits.  Another fear is being lost in the shuffle and not having any income.

Even more, the worry is how one sells themselves to employers.  Most people who work can stay at a job seven to ten years or longer.  They sell themselves once at the interview.  Soon, people may have to re-earn a job on an annual or monthly basis, depending on the project (gig) they work.

Many people Would like to change this trend.  The computers and the gig trend are about as unstoppable as the horseless carriage.  Remember, ever since the discovery of the touchstone, commerce is the force that rules the world.  The world does spin less on individuals, and more on profits, bottom lines and being first to the marketplace.

The answer, for now, is simple.  Computers are not in charge yet.  Figure out what computers cannot do, and corner the market in a non-computerized service.  Keep your wits about you and strive to stay one step ahead.  I am betting computers cannot compete and overtake the spirit and souls of humans.

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
