There are people who can recite Shakespeare’s play without missing a word, remember all the cricket score, be proficient in one specific skill etc. What will they do when the world changed and lost interest in that skill? The same skill once was praised, respected and admired. The same skill which provided positive feedback to their self-esteem.
Of course there are some core competencies which led you to develop these specific skill sets which will make you adapt and learn new ones based on the trend or there are timeless skills which could be learnt. Or we can stop caring about what others think and learn & repeat (even if there is no one to listen)
Even in our careers when we step out of our comfort zone we may have the same question hanging around. Is our skill relevant or obsolete? But again in careers the time it takes to become irrelevant is little longer and hence we may be safe.
New year coming around which triggers the resolution part of the Brain which was rusty with lack of use for an year 🙂 So the ramblings..!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
