The first time I read Alvin Toffler's work was in highschool - Future Shock. I was mesmerized by his predictions about the effect of technology on society and our well-being. So much of what he foretold has come to fruition. In the case of learning, we are seeing this now. In my lifetime, I have had to re-tool regularly as new technology has emerged. But, the re-tooling hasn't only been technological - it's been about unlearning norms and expectations for behavior in the workplace and relearning those new norms. What has been the biggest thing you've had to unlearn and relearn?
This has certainly been true in my life! Perfect example: Writing a doctoral dissertation. When the times get tough (and they definitely do!) I remind myself that "I have this!" Another example: When I've had to balance a lot going on at once, and I wonder how I'll get it all done, I remind myself "I can do this, I have before, I will again!" When have you created outcomes with positive (or negative) thinking?
