The future of work

It’s 10 A.M. I just woke up to open my computer.

I am working in a city in Mexico. During the day, I design landing pages, write articles, and create blogs.

I have been doing this for a year now.

It can be once a day. Or once a week. My chief occasionally calls me to fix some work issues. But generally, we solve everything from the computer.

We use a to-do app. We upload everything to Dropbox, and we handle the accounts passwords in 1Password.

It is increasingly clear to me that what I do is the future of work.

The future of work

Two powerful forces are shaping the future of work: The growing adoption of artificial intelligence in the workplace, and the expansion of the workforce to include both on- and off-balance-sheet talent.

The impact of automation will continue to drive us to have more creative jobs. And to cut off specialization. Mechanical work is in the process of automation, but so are the professions.

Learning everything

That evolution requires to develop specific knowledge. And to learn things we don’t know: how to start a business, how to invest in companies, how to work from home.

In my case, I studied marketing. Now I’m doing web design. And I have plans to learn to code.

The future of work is learning anything we can.

If you are not willing to expand your knowledge, the future of work will end your career.

Learn things you never thought you would learn. If you are an engineer, learn marketing. If you are an accountant, learn to code. If you are an architect, learn how to make a podcast.

The future of work is this: to change, to learn, to do everything.
