The world is changing … and changing fast! For many years, up until about 100 years ago, many people were living in the Agricultural Age, on farms working the land, and implementing skills that had been handed down for generations.
In the early 1900s, as the Industrial and Mechanical Age developed, it was a necessity for many to develop a completely new set of skills to survive as the world changed.
As the world moved into the Technology Age in the 1970s and 80s, the value to society of those who invented and developed technical and computer skills began to increase. Most recently we have been in the Information Age. Most people have so much information and multiple choices to make—from the minute they get up in the morning until they go to bed. These can be as fundamental as deciding what to wear or where to eat—or as significant as deciding whose name to put on a ballot when voting for a president, or as a CEO making decisions that affect thousands of people.
