Demonizing the Future | Career Angles

The full quote from Gary Vaynerchuk is, “We put the past on a pedestal and demonize the future.”

As much as we know change is inevitable, we resist it kicking and screaming.

If you work in technology, you are the new COBOL programmer.

If you drive a truck, you will be the new horse and buggy driver.

We can resist the future and wait until it punches us in the mouth (See Blockbuster) or anticipate the future.

What might happen to your career if some of the changes you are hearing about or seeing occur?

Do you have any idea?
