The rate at which information become irrelevant and obsolete these days is quite alarming, what was recent news in the morning, by the evening has been overtaken by events! It is a scary world for those who cannot keep up or are not updating seriously. News breaking at neck speed rates, information from trusted sources like WHO, NCDC and other notable institutions keeps changing at each hour mark, how do we survive in this kind of world……we need to learn new ways of learning and living!
The other day, I was getting updated to the lingos and slangs of the Generation Z, it was a humbling experience to finally realize that there is a frequency your children can decide to transmit on and you will be a total bystander, so many parents are at this bridge too…but will you make the brave choice to cross over to the other side?….will you commit to a lifestyle of learning afresh by first committing to “emptying your cup “, we need to unlearn & relearn a lot of things, that is how to make appreciable progress in this new world, it is a call UPGRADE From religious activities to business activities to schooling, the template and rule book is changing and we all need to embrace this new ways of doing things or forever remain on the sidelines of struggling to explain why we are being left behind. Almost everything you want to know or get information on is already available on Google, Youtube or Facebook….so no more excuses. Anyone anywhere can now with a simple device connect to the internet and access information and knowledge from anywhere and be tutored and upgraded. Never a time has there been a deluge of opportunities to be educated with functional, relevant, up to date information as now….and yet many will be left behind and will continue to exist in a different world than their peers and competition. Those that upgrade & update, whether individuals or Businesses will integrate and go on likely to get better, those that resist the change or either are unable or refuse to update will be consigned to the dustbins of history! The one key skill we all must develop in this season is the ability to LEARN, UNLEARN, & RELEARN, not doing this can soon make us illiterates how be it by choice! Wow! What a great day it is already, Life is a gift, the more we appreciate it…the more it appreciates, lets appreciate God together – IT IS A NEW DAY!
