Dysfunctional Belief: The only way to have a career is for someone to hire me and for me to work for a company in a job I can tolerate.
Reframe: One way to have an amazing career with lots of autonomy and a job I love is to invent it!
McKinsey, the famous business consulting firm, did a study on the future of work. In it, they hypothesize that automation, artificial intelligence, and turning everything into software will swallow up a lot of jobs. They predict a great deal of disruption.
However, they noted that there will be more, not less, work for designers and anyone who applies a creative mindset to their work. Evidently, these “creative jobs” are difficult, if not impossible, to automate.
