The future is decided by your actions today

How do you prepare for the future when you don’t know what’s there? Do you buy a tool? Change an architecture (like go to XML)? Take a class? Adopt UI/UX practices? Will a grand, sweeping execution of committed action guarantee your place in the future?

Where does the future come from? What do you have to understand to get where you want to go? Every day we make decisions and take actions. Hundreds of them. Each and every one has an impact on the future.

In this session, we’re going to learn how to look into the future and see the steps it takes to get you where you want to go. We’ll talk about how you can adopt change, set your own pace.

What can the audience expect to learn?

How do you know what the future holds? How do you know what to do to make sure you’re ready for it? Do you invest in skills? Do you buy a tool? Take a class? What? How do you prepare for the future when you don’t know what’s there?

Some people say that if you want to guarantee your success in the future, you have to make a change. Buy this tool. Choose this architecture. Take this class. Write for translation. Convert your content so it creates a good user experience. Change it now! Do it all at once! Make a grand, sweeping execution of committed action. Boom!

But that’s not how it happens. Successful people know that in order to achieve sustainable, repeatable, and lasting change, you do it in steps. If you want to be ready for whatever the future brings, you have to understand what to do and how to get there.

Because, after all, where does the future come from? The future is decided by actions you take today.

Every day we make decisions and take actions. Hundreds of them. Each and every one has an impact on the future. If you make small changes and take small steps you can ease into it gracefully. You can learn that new tool. You can adopt the new architecture. You will be able to deliver the standard and quality you do now even if you have to go through change.

Success isn’t jumping off a cliff, it’s making a transition. And transitions are done in phases.

In this session, learn how to you can rapidly adopt change and still learn at your own pace.

Learn how to look into the future and see the steps it takes to get you where you want to go. Learn how to break things down so that when you’re faced with a new situation, a decision you’ve never had to make before, you’ll be able to handle it.

I’ll describe several situations where teams have been successful out of the gate.
