Work-Life Strategies & Solutions

On the Evolution of Work Systems in the Digital Economy

About Me & Content Submission

About this blog & content submission:

To answer some frequently asked questions, I’m neither a human resources professional nor a coach. As I’ve been receiving content submissions, I’ll clarify that the focus of this blog isn’t people development. My interest (from the standpoint of a futurist) is in understanding our situation as it is and the way the future develops. On this note, I’m interested in exploring and understanding the alternatives we have before us.

This blog addresses how technological advances change the way we work as well as adaptive strategies and solutions intended for organizational leaders, managers, and individuals. This blog presents and reviews literature focusing on the following topics:

  • Challenges posed by globalization and the digital economy
  • Future work trends
  • Implementing a remote work system (a/k/a telework or workshifting)
  • Alternatives to the 9-to-5 job

NOTE: I disallow other entities from using my blog as a platform to spread their political values. Thus, I reserve the right to edit content that consists of virtue signalling, political statements and commentary, preaching, and (annoying) political buzzwords. I will reject politically-tinged content submissions that are unalterable (e.g., infographics, etc.).

      Hi Tony,

      You’re very welcome! I must say that I’m quite envious of your chosen career track. Unexpected life events led me to fall in love with the study of birds only after I finished so many years of formal education. Now, I’m one of those people who wish I didn’t go to college and graduate school so early in my life (because I didn’t know what I really wanted). However, I’ve been doing what I can as a self-directed learner and conduct my observations in my own backyard and during my travels.

      Best wishes to you also!

      Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my posts Malcolm! I’ll head over and comment on your post in just a bit, as I have a difficult time typing on my mobile phone and just hopped on my computer.
