The finance thought leader Robert Kiyosaki writes:
“We are at the end of the Industrial Age and the beginning of the Information Age. The people who are living in the Industrial Age are getting their butts kicked, and people who are thinking Information Age are winning. That’s the challenge.”
We indeed live in one of the most exciting times in history. This is a time of change, new ideas and fresh opportunities.
But only if you are willing to embrace it.
For most of the 20th century, only people with high status or managed corporations controlled not just tangible resources, but more importantly, knowledge capital.
Workers in the Industrial Age were taught what and how to think. Processes and systems were created to do more in less time. And it worked.
As a result, for many years, efficiency took precedence over strength.
That may be effective for the system, but it creates a great deal of individual waste.
