Will you fly IN a drone?

Apr 11, 2019

The world is changing. But we do not need to fear change. How change affects us is determined more by how we react to change, than the change itself.


We’ve heard of driverless cars and buses.


This week, Volocopter will be launching the first trials of drone-based helicopter taxis in Singapore.


In the last few blogs I wrote about the economy of the future, I had talked about how technology started replacing more menial jobs, and tracked the progress to customer service jobs (which up till then was viewed as irreplaceable by machines), and then even creative jobs like music composition!


But please don’t be mistaken, this is NOT a fear mongering message.


While technology could create job losses or transformations, it’s what we do with technology that will impact our lives.


It’s like any other change – it’s all about how we deal with it.  And the fluidity of everything around us, means that our lives are constantly about dealing with change.


It’s just that the media picked up on this one, and it’s causing fear and ripples everywhere.


You see, if we do nothing, then our jobs could very well get affected.


I was a corporate lawyer for 20 years.  In the last couple of years of my legal career, I noticed that pre-transaction (merger, acquisition of companies, shares, assets) due diligence started to cost less and less.  That’s because a lot of that work was taken over from young lawyers by machines.


Knowing that technology will not stay stagnant, I realized that it would only be a matter of time before my job was affected.


I started to ask myself what I knew about anything other than law.  The answer was frightening.


I knew nothing.


At the same time, I saw the possibilities that automation offered.  One could now conceivably work from anywhere in the world, with little or no overhead.


So I decided to start learning a business that would use automation, and that business was affiliate marketing.


Before you start thinking that I was a secret computer geek hidden in a corporate lawyer’s body, I need to tell you that at one point, I had secretaries who printed my emails for me, and I dictated replies for them to send out for me.


Chances are, if you’re reading this on an email or blog post,  you’re technically advanced enough to learn this business, given that I was.


The only thing that makes a difference as to whether or not we manage to make that change, is whether or not we take the step to making that change.


Let me know what you think!
