Are You Looking in the Right Direction?

We all seem to be in search of something. Moreover, there are many people out there who are willing to lead us on that search in exchange, in exchange for something they want. They may want money or attention, or understanding or belief they are doing good or fulfilling some purpose. They do want something.

The question is, do those offering you guidance understand what you are looking for and can they really provide what you are need requires?

I find it interesting that our eyes set at the front of our body on the high ground and focus outwards. Unless you look in the mirror, you do not see an image of yourself, and it is hard to see what goes on behind the eyes. You have to look around look behind you again more mirrors with images.

The question I have today is, ‘Are you looking in the right place?’ Or, are you running all over the place looking here and looking there for answers? Do you seek things in many places, yet, never seem to be able to find them? Do the claims of others somehow generally leave you short of where you want to be, feeling somehow less, and somehow again without.

There is another place you can look. The place is one of the hardest to look and yet one of the easiest to get. You need to look within yourself.

Is there anybody who knows you better than you do? Who knows what you want? You do. Who knows what you like and don’t like? You do. Who knows how far you are willing to go to get something done, and done the way you want it done? Oh yeah, that is you. Okay

Reach out to the world to collaborate, to communicate, to solve technical issues, and to learn new ideas. Never let others tell you who you are or who you should be throwing a strong keep.

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.

If you would like a checklist on how to prepare for the computer-based world and do well, working projects (gigs) rather than full time, please click here
