James Schramko here, and I want to talk about the change that has happened in society in terms of the way people approach a standard weekday.
For many, many years, probably since the textile era, people have worked Monday to Friday, nine to five. They come in, they clock on, they work, they go home, they watch TV, go to bed, do the same thing the next day. And for many, many years, institutions for education have trained people to do repetitious tasks, to recite, regurgitate information, to memorize things.
And now we’re in a new era. We’re in the era that Peter Drucker foreshadowed, called basically the rise of the knowledge worker. And that is this era where you can actually get paid according to your knowledge. And it signals the change in society. When the general public is forgetting what day it is, to the point where they have a tongue-in-cheek news segment called “What Day Is It?” we know that people are starting to let go of the old system. It’s starting to come out of the coma, and start thinking about a new way of living.
As someone who’s worked from home for the last 11 years, I’ve enjoyed that not worrying what date it is so much. I’ve designed a life that is different to the nine to five. And what I’m going to do is actually give that training away. I presented about this at SuperFastBusiness Live in March 2020. And I’ll give this training away very soon on SuperFastBusiness.com as my way of helping others get a handle on this idea that you don’t have to go back to the old way. While government bodies are handing out education at the moment, they’re telling people to do courses, they’re upskilling people, I think the new way will be, you learn things, you apply them in whichever way works best for you. And that doesn’t have to be a nine-to-five job.
So I hope the training will be useful. To get the training, just make sure you’re on my email list at SuperFastBusiness.com. We’ll let you know when it’s available. And of course, if you’re a member of SuperFastBusiness, it’s already inside the membership. I hope you enjoy it.
Also, my book, Work Less Make More, gives you a lot of tools to start breaking away from that job-like existence and start harnessing the new way. The way that Peter Drucker talked about in the late 60s. And we can see the collapse of traditional education platforms and systems. And we’ll see the rise of online courses and online memberships. And that’s exactly what I help people with. So there will be more on that, too. I’m currently working on a book about memberships. And I put together a course with my friend John Lint called OnlineCourseSystem.com. And that helps people do courses. So you’ll hear more from me on this topic.
But what I really wanted to talk about is the change that has happened. It has shifted. It’s happening right now. And the new era is about to begin. And that means huge opportunities for those in the right place at the right time with the right knowledge, and I’m here to help.
