The 21st century has ushered in some pretty big changes. Most of us are intellectually aware of the changes. We’re not oblivious to them. We whip around the terms information age, 21st century, the millennia, etc. like free candy from a Pez dispenser. But few of us have completely internalized these changes, and how the changes have affected us. Unfortunately, the impact is significant, and it’s hurting us.
For me, the conscious recognition of the change started about 18 months ago, and it led me down a rather insightful path.
What I learned was, we’ve entered a new era. We’ve left the industrial age and entered the information age and with this transition, the rules to success and opportunity have changed with it. Making things, even more, convoluted, no one is telling us things have changed or what it takes to be successful in this new landscape. Too many of us are floundering around, trying to get our bearings straight and figure out what the hell is going on.
After spending time looking at this powerful phenomenon, I decided to share what I’ve learned and what has happened to the rules of success as we’ve entered the information age. I wrote a book to share with you what’s changed, why it’s changed and how it’s creating some of the greatest opportunities (and problems) for success we’ve ever seen — that is if you are willing to embrace the change.
In Not Taught, I talk about what has to be done differently to compete in today’s hyper-information charged world where everyone and everything can be found on Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest and more. I talk about how the rate of change is altering what employers expect and want from their employees. I break down why your college degree isn’t worth the paper it’s written on, why your “experience” offers nothing of value and why few care how hard you work anymore. I go deep into how the world has drastically changed and what that means to you and your success.
I spend lots of time highlighting what’s changed, why and what you can do to capitalize on the changes to grow your career from mediocre to the big time.
I had a blast writing Not Taught and learned a lot as I was writing it. I’m excited to share it with you.
The information age has plowed it’s way into the 21st century, yet unfortunately, few of us have adjusted our approaches to leverage the changes. We’re still operating as if we’re in the industrial age, and it costs us our careers, money, and opportunities.
That’s why I wrote Not Taught. I wanted to teach everyone what no one else has had the courtesy to teach you. I wanted to help people capitalize on the opportunities the information age has created.
Being my first book, I will contend, I was nervous. But the early reviews have been great.
