Are Your Skills Obsolete?

Technology continues to evolve as does our reliance on digital tools. I purchased my first digital camera from Kodak in the 1980s. For the first time I was enthralled with capturing everything that captivated. Being able to upload my images to my first laptop computer gave me full control of the editing process; I felt empowered. Unfortunately, as time passed, Kodak struggled with bankruptcies, eliminated consumer products and downsized.

What we needed yesterday is often obsolete today; however, not necessarily unworthy of our time. For example, the debate about cursive handwriting reminds us of the importance of various forms of creativity. Creativity results in innovation; therefore, exercising our brains to keep new ideas flowing for the benefit mankind is imperative.
