Rise of Information Age

Rise of Information Age

In last post, I was talking about power of leverage.  I show how rich people are getting richer by utilizing leverage.  Most of success people today uses OPM, OPT and technology as a leverage to magnify their effort to 10 times or even 100 times…

 

At the same time, due to globalization, we have no choice but learn how to use leverage to our advantages.  Otherwise, we will be left alone in industrial age…

 

Although globalization and technological advances make this world change dramatically fast, most people did not change fast enough to adapt to the change.  Worse, many did not even realize the implication of the change that brings…

 

Most people are still in industrial age idea, such as…

 

  • Go to good school and get good grade so that we can get safe and secure job with excellent benefit
  • As long as you go to good and big company, they will take care of you for rest of your life
  • We will just save money in the bank.  It is the safest…
  • Starting the business is so risky.  Just staying in the job and it will take care of you…
  • I will do multiple jobs to pay the bills…

 

Every time I hear these words, I cringes…

 

If we take a look, many changes are happening all over the world such as…

 

  • Uber and LIFT are replacing the Taxi industry
  • Odesk and other outsourcing services are replacing the domestic jobs
  • Globalization brings big corporations to move to oversea since it is much less costly to them to have plants in US than other third world countries, such as Vietnam
  • Many fast food chains are adapting the idea of placing machines for taking orders
  • Central banks all over the world prints so much money (Debt) which causes the inflation all over the world

 

In other words, most domestic work situations get worse and worse, while value of the currency declines…

 

It is almost insanity to me that people get multiple jobs so that they can earn little more income that depreciates faster than their ability to work because of central banks printing trillions of dollars…   Again, we only have 24 hours a day and 168 hours a week.  No more no less.  What we can do by ourselves are extremely limited…

 

Even such situation, people in industrial age idea still claim “You go to good school and you need to get the job”…   This is just sad…

 

Global economy forces almost all of the people to shift the mindset from industrial age idea into information age idea.

 

So, what is information age?

 

It seems that many people may suffer from this change but all successful people know…

 

Change brings opportunity…

 

Now, there are so many information and technology.  Great thing is that average people like us take advantage of information and technology much cheaper than 10 – 20 years ago.

 

Now, everybody can virtually (With small money)

 

  • Start their own business (Internet based business, part time business etc)
  • Create the computer or phone apps that help many people all over the globe
  • Reach out influential / successful  people to learn or work together even if each other is in different continents
  • Do joint venture with others all over the globe

 

It is almost impossible to do such things with small budget 10 – 20 years ago…

 

In this time, anybody can be successful with small amount of money by embracing the idea of information age.  However, we all need to change quick from industrial age thinking to information age thinking.  Otherwise, many people will suffer greatly from this coming changes…  Question becomes…

 

Are you ready?
