Time immigrants: facing the unknown

time_travelAn immigrant is a person that makes the decision to leave his native country and move to a foreign country. The immigrant is conscious that he will face many difficulties and will have to adapt to a new reality. He may need to learn a new language, and probably will have to acquire new skills. When a person immigrates, he decides to face the unknown. He leaves a world that is very familiar and well understood, and moves into a new environment that is full of challenges.

Today we are living in a world that is changing extremely fast. New sophisticated technologies are constantly replacing other technologies that become obsolete. Some traditional professions are disappearing while new specializations are being created. College students are not sure if they will be able to find good jobs when they graduate, and at the same time many companies have difficulties hiring qualified professionals with the right expertise.

We are not able to predict how exactly our lives will change in the next decades, but we know for sure that the future will be very different from the present. We will probably face many difficulties and have to adapt to a new reality. We may need to acquire new skills. We are leaving a world that is very familiar and well understood, and moving into a new environment that is full of challenges. We are not immigrating geographically, but we are time immigrants.

Are you ready to time-immigrate? What is your strategy to succeed in a world that will be drastically different from the one you know?
