My personal view is that one must stay engaged and on top of what is going on. You cannot sit around and not be aware of what changes are taking place, it could actually mean the difference between success and failure. The change is coming constantly and at an accelerating rate. One must gather resources and create products and services others find value in and will pay you for. Sitting around waiting to be automated out of your job is not a plan.
Accepting and acting out the current paradigm of getting good grades, going to college, and getting a good job is not going to be an assurance of anything in the future. People are going to be forced into thinking and acting for themselves, a skill most do not have, and if you don't you will suffer.
