Ten years ago, if you were as good at using networks and software as you are today, most of your peers would have considered you some sort of wizard.
The question isn’t whether or not each of us is going to get better at using our tools, the only issue is: how soon?
We can choose to live behind the curve or ahead of it. It turns out that there are significant rewards for pushing through discomfort and getting (much) better at all the resources that are suddenly freely available in data acquisition, learning technologies, financial tech, marketing and networks.
What if instead of resisting until we had no choice, we decided to pioneer instead?
PS the same thing is true for our other skills, including leadership.
