It’s never fun to think about being “let go” from your current job, but it is a good thought experiment. Asking yourself, If you were replaced at work, what skills would your replacement have that you don’t? … can open your eyes to the areas of your profession that could use some improving and skills that need sharpening.
Next steps: If you’ve answered this question and find that you have some areas that need improving or opportunities to get a leg-up on the competition consider the many online options available for free and cheap on the web.
If you don’t have the time to engage in a MOOC or even a few hours of online training, don’t forget about audio books, podcasts and video channels, online. My favorites personal are here –> Cameronstewart.com
