"The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read"

-Mark Twain

The world is changing faster than ever before. Rapid technological and social shifts are disrupting industries and reshaping the skills needed for success. In this era of unprecedented change, our education and business systems must adapt to prepare students and

professionals for the future.


Many students enter and leave college on autopilot mode, just doing the minimum necessary to move into the next required class. They then complete their education with some basic knowledge, and yet they lack the necessary understanding of the skills the world actually wants them to have. Those skills are creativity, critical thinking, communication skills, collaborative problem solving, flexibility, frustration tolerance, and a curiosity to be open to learning and doing new things as they arise. Then they wonder why their careers, relationships, and life don't match their dreams or expectations.

"The only real test of intelligence is if you get what you want out of life"

-Naval Ravikant

Seventy-five percent of jobs in our country that pay more than $35,000 require a college degree. Only 38% of Americans (one out of three) have a college degree

(about seventy million workers). The rest are locked out of all those kind of higher-paying jobs, with no upward mobility.

And even those with a college degree they are still falling short in critical new skill areas.

"The skills and concepts one understands when they are in college are not always a perfect fit for their future jobs. In today’s day and age, we are so far past the time when you can learn everything you need to know for your career when you are twenty-two.

Lisa Gevelber, Google Chief Marketing Officer

Today’s labor market demands are moving much quicker with the expansion of technology and the alternative flexible and accessible path forward is going to be based on acquiring new skills quickly and adapting to changing business trends as they arise.

As Alvin Toffler wrote in his seminal work, Future Shock, over 50 years ago,

"Tomorrow's illiterate will not be the man who can't read; he will be the man who has not learned how to learn."

This has never been more true than today.


The new education must empower learners with self-reflective abilities and beginner's mind (Shoshin) to engage in the learn, unlearn, relearn cycle throughout their lives.

**Learn, unlearn, and relearn theory is a vital cycle of gaining and applying knowledge, discarding out-of-date information, and gaining new information that builds upon and updates the previous knowledge. It involves staying current with the rapidly changing world and reflecting on one's own current opinions and beliefs to potentially revise them - exhibiting the open attitude of Shoshin or beginner's mind when approaching new concepts.**

**Shoshin (Japanese:) is a concept from Zen Buddhism meaning beginner's mind. It refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions when studying, even at an advanced level, just as a beginner would.**
