use a mobile device like a smart phone, I bet you’ll be familiar with
the word, “Upgrade.” The users of these devices sometimes get
notifications, requesting them to upgrade some of the applications they
use on it. Even yesterday, I got a notification from my Play Store to
update my PicStory, which I did.
occasionally come up with newer version of their apps with added
features, which will make its usage easier and faster with a more
desirable and efficient output.
regularly, but do nothing to upgrade themselves. They are registered and
active members of numerous chatting sites and apps spending reasonable
time on it, but have no time to update their knowledge. They spend money
on subscription, using a huge amount of megabit on downloading and
streaming videos from YouTube, but would not buy books or even download eBooks that will help sharpen their lives.
lots of business establishment has gone out of the market because they
lack innovation. Some student restrict themselves to only the things
they are taught in class. They don’t make attempt to learn more on what
they’ve been taught. How sad! I’ll share three reasons why it’s important to upgrade or update your knowledge. Software developers understand these fact.
1. Yesterday’s Knowledge Cannot Sustain You Today:
We live in a changing world, where the only constant thing is change. A
thing or person that do not change will become obsolete or irrelevant.
In computing, we’ve seen changes from main frame computers to laptops.
This is the result of computer Scientists and Engineers upgrading their
knowledge in this field and thinking innovatively.
expedient we keep learning and adding values to ourselves, if we want to
remain relevant in this changing world. What we’ve known in the past,
cannot be enough to face today’s challenge. Many companies have folded
up because they no longer fit in in today’s market. Employers do not
only look for people with certificate whose learning stopped after
convocation, but those that will keep learning and always bring
something to the table.
In business, several establishment compete. Each of those companies
wants to be the consumers choice; the brand consumers buy from. In other
to achieve this, they keep working on their product to ensure it’s of
good quality, they spend good amount of money on advertising to create
awareness for their product, they ensure their staffs are customer
friendly, and so on.
interviews while just a few will be employed, also calls for adequate
grooming and continuous personal development from youths and job
3. Increased Ability:
You’ll wonder why people love new versions of an application. If it is a
browser for instance, the latest version will have functions like;
ability to copy from a page and paste on another, ability to share pages
on Facebook, or Twitter, faster downloads, pages load faster and so on,
compare to the previous version.
get things done even without supervision always become the employer’s favorite. Be a life long learner. A wise man once said “A man of
knowledge increases strength.” To do more, you have to know more.
innovative ability lies utterly on how much you know and how well you
can create or make improvement. See knowledge as an application that needs constant
updating. Keep building on what you’ve known before. Attend personal
development seminal and conferences. Invest on books that teaches
personal branding and self-development.
Try to learn more on your field.
Note that, I’m not advocating that you shouldn’t use apps or that you
shouldn’t upgrade them. You should. But, my point is, as you upgrade
your applications, never forget to upgrade yourself.
