The world and the market changes so fast nowadays that the uncertainty is something our generation needs to live with, its is more or less unavoidable. Whether its the skill requirement for any job, the technology or even the way of looking at things, it keeps changing. There is no point fighting this change, but the sensible idea should be how to minimize the risk of uncertainty for our self and our families.
For starters, few of the ways to counter such risks can be:
1. Awareness : The first step of negotiating any risk is to be aware about it. If we as a person are not aware of the challenges and threats we are exposed to, it will be impossible to tackle the risk.
2. Corpus: Ours is the credit card generation, we buy today and earn tomorrow assuming that the tomorrow is as bright as today. I think we should always have a corpus of savings which is liquid in nature and should be able to sustain us for a period of 6 months to 1 year.
3. Investing in the Intellectual Capital: To walk ahead of changing times, one need to keep investing in the skills and try and improve ones intellectual capital in the process.
4. Making right choices: The choices we make should be futuristic in nature and should also be something one can enjoy.
