The World Is Flat Release 3.0 Summary

Skills Employers Are Looking For

  • 1) Develop your ability to learn how to learn. To do this you need to enjoy learning. Taking courses from teachers who are excited about what they teach can help. You can’t light a fire in someone else if it doesn’t burn in you to begin with. If you love kids and convey the love, they will be inspired by you.
  • 2) In a flat world, those with passion and curiosity for what they do have an advantage. They are self-educators and self-motivators. Curious people tend to work harder.
  • 3) Play well with others. People skills will become more important than computer skills. The geeks will not inherit the earth. You can’t collaborate if you can’t get along.
  • 4) Nurture your right brain. Right-brain skills like artistry, empathy, seeing the big picture, and pursuing the transcendent are increasingly important. You will be untouchable in jobs that computers and robots cannot do faster and some talented foreigner cannot do cheaper. The pursuit of right-brain ability aligns with passion. You are more likely to find a lawyer writing a screen play in his spare time than you are finding a sculptor doing other people’s taxes on the weekend.

  1. I have had it with this unconsidered love of the Great Tom. Just have a gander at this if you really want to know what this narcissistic clown is all about: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/blogs/taibblog/thomas-friedmans-new-state-of-grace-20120627

    No, I won’t read Friedman again any time soon even if it is hot
