Last week I shared the story of an up-and-coming executive who got the sack on a Friday afternoon.  While his separation was through no fault of his own, it was nonetheless devastating. As I share this story, lawyers, bankers, accountants, truck drivers, drill press operators all nod as if they understand, but all the while thinking – this could never happen to me.

Jay Samit’s enlightening book, “Disrupt Yourself” begs to differ. His reasons:

  • Advances in 3-D printing will disrupt supply chains, cutting hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs
  • Driverless cars, trucks, and advances in drone technology will impact tens of millions of jobs in transportation and logistics
  • Advancements in artificial intelligence and automation will have a $5 to $7 trillion impact on white-collar jobs, according to a McKinsey study

Says the serial disrupter Mr. Samit: 

“Whether by choice or circumstance, every career will be disrupted.”

Are you sure you don’t need a career plan?
