Where are the Signposts?

Right before you. You just have to look very carefully.

We are bombarded with so much information that our job now must lie in deciding what information we need to even get started on and what we need to leave behind. We then need to make sense of the information and draw insights from it. Otherwise, it just stays with us as a big pile of data, meaning that effectively nothing will come out of it.

An article like this, Jobs of the Future, by Parag Khanna, can be very scary for some. There???s always research out there, and there are many people telling you what???s trending now. The question ??? what are you going to do about it? How does it affect it ??? does it raise fear or excitement? And of course, which information do you trust and rely on?

If you are on the road, taking a trip you???ve neither planned nor willing to take control of, I would hazard a guess that this sort of article would be scary news indeed. So much is out of your control.
If you are on the road, and you feel that you???ve been the driver of your journey, and if you feel your trip is moving along at the pace and in the direction you???d like it to, I would hazard a guess that this article would be pretty irrelevant to you. Interesting but irrelevant.

While the article is enlightening about so many possibilities in the future and how these changes will affect us, I cant help but wonder.
How much of the information around us, right around us, in our workplace and in our relationships have we sifted out of our perception?
How much of the information around us, is right there and yet remains unseen…. answers in waiting to our problems?
