The average person in our generation is expected to change careers about 5 times in his lifetime. This means we are now taking new vectors more often than any other previous generation.
There are more tools available now than ever before to enable us to take new paths like online courses, immersive bootcamps, remote mentoring, making new connections etc. Human being learn by emulation and it easier now that ever find someone and to learn by emulation. Societies and work culture have evolved to adopt this constant change and are no long a barrier for us to take a new vector, start a new venture or chase a dream.
