PII 010: PC & Internet Technology Has Changed the Rules About Schooling and Money Making Or Income Earning [Hint: Those Who Resist The Change Risk Extinction]

The illiterate of the 21 will not be those who cannot read or write. They will be those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” – Alan Toffer

Look around you. Regarding what is required to earn a decent living as an adult in society, the world has changed completely from what it was when your parents (and grandparents!) were young.

Back then, all you needed to do was “go to school, and get good grades” – and you were almost sure to get picked up to start a high paying job by a top company right from the grounds of your university!

That stopped being the case a long time ago.

PII 010: PC & Internet Technology Has Changed the Rules About Schooling and Money Making Or Income Earning [Hint: Those Who Resist The Change Risk Extinction]

The illiterate of the 21 will not be those who cannot read or write. They will be those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” – Alan Toffer

Look around you. Regarding what is required to earn a decent living as an adult in society, the world has changed completely from what it was when your parents (and grandparents!) were young.

Back then, all you needed to do was “go to school, and get good grades” – and you were almost sure to get picked up to start a high paying job by a top company right from the grounds of your university!

That stopped being the case a long time ago.

Today, PC and Internet technology has changed (and continues to change) all the rules about schooling, money making/income earning etc.

The new reality is that only those who avoid making the mistake of resisting the changes…who instead “adapt” what they learn and do (and how they learn and do it), to today’s constantly and rapidly changing world, will be assured of sustainable authentic successes.

What is most noteworthy is that most of what needs to be learned, for one to succeed in this new dispensation is still NOT being taught in our conventional schools.

The onus is therefore on YOU to go out of your way to learn as much of it as you will need out in the real world.

Take it from me:

All you need to get started on your way to success in life today is the ability to read and write competently.

With that skill, you can learn virtually anything you want, to earn a decent living – without necessarily going into paid employment. Or if you take up a job, what you learn will equip you to profitably engage in income generating activities in your spare time, to complement your salary.

PC and Internet technology has made (and continues to make) it so easy and convenient to get the multidimensional kind of real world relevant education needed to excel today. in virtually any area of endeavour you apply dedicated effort to.

The days when you could only get ahead by presenting “degree certificates” to get jobs/earn income are long gone – never to return.

You need to wake up to this reality and arm yourself to deal with its potential implications for your income earning prospects.

You need to do this, not just for yourself, but also for your loved ones – especially your kids.

Many of my Best Practice Parenting articles on this blog feature true stories, photos and videos showing how I’ve been doing just that for my kids through the Personal Achievement Coaching for Kids (PACK) program I developed.

As a result they are acquiring real world relevant knowledge, attitudes and skills designed to enable them emerge as competent, independent minded income earning adults in society, who can hold their own wherever they go!

So how exactly do you go about doing this I.e arming yourself to deal with its potential implications for your income earning prospects?

It’s simple.

Start paying more attention to learning and developing practial/tried and tested techniques and strategies to take what you learn(ed) in your formal schooling, combined with what you learn elsewhere, to solve real life problems you’ve established that others will gladly pay for.

If you’re honest with yourself, you will acknowledge that many people who lack formal education already profit daily from doing the above all around you.

The formal schooling you have may give you an advantage over such persons, but that is only if you make the effort to apply it to your purposes in a manner that works.

If you succeed in evolving into the above described mode of life, you will leave the leagues of those to be called “illiterates” in this 21st century – and beyond!

Tayo K. Solagbade is a Location Independent Performance Improvement

Specialist and Multipreneur (i.e. a highly versatile/multi-skilled entrepreneur), with a bias for delivering Best Practice solutions to

Farm Businesses and others.

Since 2002, he has earned multiple streams of income providing individuals and organizations with personal development training and coaching, custom MS Excel-VB solutions, web marketing systems/web hosting,

freelance writing services, and best practice extension support services (for farm business owners).

Tayo is the author of the Self-Development (SD) Bible™ and the

popular Livestock Feed Formulation Handbook. He is also the developer of its accompanying Excel-VB driven Ration Formulator™ and the Poultry Farm

Manager™ software.

He has delivered talks/papers to audiences in

various groups and organizations, including the Centre for Management Development, University of Lagos, Christ Baptist Church, Volunteer Corps, Tantalisers Fast Foods

and others.

In May 2012 he was the Guest Speaker at the Centre for Entrepreneurship Development’s Annual Semester Entrepreneurial Lecture at Yaba College of Technology in Lagos.

On 1st April 2013, Tayo (who reads, write and speaks the French language) relocated to Cotonou, Benin Republic to begin slowly

traveling across the West African region.

His key purpose is to deliver talks, seminars

and workshops on his key areas of focus and interest to interested audiences (Email tayo at tksola dot com for details).

In a previous life, before leaving to become self-employed, Tayo served for seven years (October 1994 to December 2001) as a high performing manager in Guinness Nigeria. He rose from Shift Brewer to Training & Technical Development Manager, and later acted in senior roles as Production Manager and Technical
Manager.

In addition to constantly challenging the status quo and influencing positive work changes, he built a reputation for using self-taught spreadsheet programming skills (starting with Lotus 1-2-3, and later moving to Excel Visual Basic) – in his spare time – to develop Automated Spreadsheet Applications to computerize manual report generation processes in the departments he worked. Over four(4) of his applications were adopted for brewery level reporting.

Tayo holds a B.Sc degree in Agricultural Extension Services from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, having graduated top of his class – with Second Class Upper Division honors – in 1992. He is an Associate Member of the UK Institute & Guild of Brewing, a 1997 National Finalist of the Nigerian Institute of Management’s(NIM) Young Managers’

competition, a Certified Psychometric Test Administrator for Psytech UK, innovator of Spontaneous Coaching for Self-Development™ (SCfS-D™), and Founder of the Self-Development Academy (SDAc).

When he’s not amazing clients with his superhuman skills (wink), Tayo works as the creative force behind his Daily Self-Development Nuggets blog – on which he also publishes The Farm CEO Weekly Newspaper (sent via email to paid subscribers) and his Weekly Performance Improvement IDEAS

newsletter.
