Being innovative means testing and discovering novel ways of doing things, otherwise known as being creative. The word innovation is not for a person who has no percentage of curiosity.
A lot has changed in our generation and people are discovering more ways of meeting up to the demands of survival and functionality. Talk about the current use of solar technology and machinery, all these are products of innovations.
There was a time when people would struggle to get higher education so as to get better-paying jobs. It’s not the same today. The world has taken a shift.
Skills are in high demand now than certificates. Funny enough, these skills can be learned within 3 to 6 months and then you have a lot of opportunities that will enable you to earn from them if you know your job.
Some are stagnant currently because they’ve refused to or have no interest in embracing the current demand for technology. Imagine clerks who were in high demand years back being displaced by AI and many pushed into positions where they earn little or nothing. These same clerks were earning high in civil service back in the 80s and 90s. This is because times have changed.
It’s been news in the media, how Bob Chapek, the CEO of Disney, has refused to rest on his laurels as he announced his desire to let Disney push boundaries by expanding into the metaverse. This is no surprise.
Innovate your skills.
Top up your games.
Strive to be relevant.
And you’ll overcome stagnation.
