Critical Thinking – Did You Know? Video

       This video blew my freaking mind. I mean, are we REALLY aware of how fast our world is growing? It’s a crazy concept to think about. I feel like a lot of us don’t really consider the fact that technology isn’t ever going to stop improving. We kind of get into the mind set that we’re as advanced as we’re ever going to be. But just look at where we were just 10 years ago. We relied on dial-up internet, Facebook didn’t even really exist in social media, and smartphones were a thing of science fiction. The idea that the top 10 jobs in 2010 didn’t even exist in 2004 not only shows how fast and ever evolving the world is, but also shows that what we think we want as a career might not even exist by the time we graduate. It’s a scary thought. It just shows that we can’t ever get too comfortable with life as we know it. We have to stay educated in the world around us. Our time in college is precious. It’s a chance to educate ourselves not just in school but it gives us a chance to be outside observers to whats really happening. Right now, most of us don’t have jobs, bills to pay, or houses to mortgage; just our school and social lives. We need to challenge ourselves to be observant of how things are changing, because theres no telling what the world will be in 4 years when we take the world by storm, all we know is that we have to prepare ourselves for the unexpected and keep our eyes open for new opportunity.
