If you have a quest to be a lifelong learner, there perhaps is no better time in history to be living to fulfill your dream. The amount of learning resources available has exploded right along with the boom of the internet. No longer are people relegated to just learning in their town from local teachers that only present a few classes to choose from.
With today’s technology, the sky is the limit as there are thousands of courses, books, videos, and learning blogs available. However, not all learning resources are created equally so you must be aware of which ones are the best to choose from. As it is, one quick Google search for learning resources will give you about one and a half billion results. Rather than spending the rest of your life growing a long beard and navigating through this one search, it would be much better to go about it smartly.
Why Pursue Lifelong Learning in the First Place?
All of us should essentially want to be lifelong learners. After all, it is a way to get the most possible out of life. There are numerous reasons why you could decide to become a lifelong learner. For instance, you may just enjoy learning new skills and studying interesting topics that you find fascinating. But on the other hand, you actually may need it to further your career.
You may already have a good job with decent pay at a company that has been around for decades. However, as technology advances, so must our job skills. With automation, software, and artificial intelligence emerging more and more in the workplace, it could be just a matter of time before your current position becomes obsolete. Here are a few careers that are predicted to be replaced completely in the near future.
This does not even take into account the jobs in manufacturing that are not only decreasing at an alarming rate because of automation, but in fact, the productivity rates are increasing as the workers are being let go. To employers, this is a dream come true. To the average worker, it is time to develop a new skill set that will be harder to replace with technology. In the last two decades, the number of manufacturing jobs has been cut in half because of the overall technology. How soon will it be until a skeleton crew of three or four people could operate an entire automated plant on their own?
How to Keep Yourself Relevant in the Workplace
Just because your job might be able to be replaced through technology, don’t think that your life is crashing down all around you. Instead, there are opportunities that are presenting itself around every corner. It is your chance to change with the times.
There is a widening skill gap between the kind of employees that companies need and the ones that are being offered. Because of this, you could soon be in demand if you keep on your path of becoming a lifelong learner. Approaching the Human Resource department of your company and asking for suggestions about how to improve your skillset could be one avenue to pursue. Perhaps they can recommend a few workshops or courses that will assist you in the workplace.
With perseverance, you will soon be developing new skills that will make you indispensable to the company. In an effort to proceed down this path quickly, you should put your trust in a learning resource that is able to offer just about anything you would need.
