A lot of people are very skilled at their job. This does not often correlate with being highly paid for their work!
A lot of people with low skill level are making more money with that skill than the higher skilled people.
The ability to turn a skill into something that can make money is a skill in itself (the skill of monetisation), and without it a skilled person will be eternally underpaid. With it, a person can make money with a low skill level in that area.
Do you agree? Disagree? Why? And what are the consequences of this?
If you agree, is the solution to teach people the skill of monetising? Or is it to match the monetisers up with the skilled individuals so they can make money together?
Would economy benefit from widespread effective monetisation by skilled individuals? Would it be the opposite? Let me know your thoughts!
Schools are great for teaching how to work under direct oversight, like a teacher standing over you, and this translates well to traditional work with a boss standing over you in set working hours. The world is moving towards self-directed work (especially working from home or self-employment) as well as self-directed development and learning, and this is something most people are simply not good at long term.
In my opinion a key ability of our generation will be to plan and implement work at home under no supervision, and this will be one of two critical things to teach children (and adults) to prepare them for a 21st century career (I’ll talk about the second thing another time).
Agree or disagree? How would you develop this ability on a national scale? Let me know your thoughts!
