Be it Titan or Citizen, a watch company could not have anticipated competition coming from mobile phones. Phones provided so much more than just time to the user. A small application like paytm is challenging established banks like SBI and websites like Flipkart are taking away the sales of well off shopkeepers. These are similar examples which show that competition can arise from the unknown anytime. We need to prepare ourselves to tackle challenges arising from anywhere in the world.
When you build a company, you consider competitors from your industry or some other industry, but a competition coming from a developing industry in the future? Yes you have to consider that as well now; you have to keep in mind of competition coming from unseen spheres, this is what the new era demands.
A new development in technology, especially “Artificial Intelligence” is turning into the job eating monster for humans. It was believed that Artificial Intelligence could not master the human quality of imagination but we were wrong. Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) is the technology that allows machines to imagine, this was recently reported in World Economic Forum. So now AI is going to give competition to artists and designers as well. Now, machine learning is also gaining popularity which is the science of teaching machines to learn concepts. So machines would be able to learn and imagine in the 21st century. Who thought that one day students would also have to compete with machines in terms of learning?
No matter how hard it gets, there is always a way to solve problems. A real leader is never afraid of any challenge; they view every adversity as an opportunity to shine. Challenges keep changing but the approach for tackling these challenges do not vary that often. If you put your heart and soul to understand the problem by thinking critically, you can always come up with creative solutions. When circumstances get tough, you have to get tougher to overcome the hurdles. It doesn’t matter if it’s the 21st century or 3rd century, every era has its own challenges and the survival is of the fittest. As time goes by we need to adapt ourselves to our surroundings, only then we can fit in to do better in our lives.
“Look beyond what you see“- the words of Rafiki from the Lion King need to be imbibed in our spirits to excel in 21st century. We have to prepare for the unknown, the world no longer cares about what we know, it cares about what we can do with what we know.
We are nurturing students to prepare for the unseen as part of our pursuits to become one of the best schools in Faridabad.
