What is future-proofing yourself by Tony de Bree

Updated: June 24, 2024


as we are in a second lockdown’ in The Netherlands and we are approaching the New year, I wanted to share some of my personal tips and experiences on how to future-proof yourself in 2021 and how I do that personally in a number of blogs and pitch-videos on www.tonydebree.online.

What is ‘future-proofing yourself?

Future-proofing yourself is the process of anticipating the future soft- and hard skills you personally need to minimize the effects of shocks and stresses of future events and to acquire the relevant skills for you personally in time.

In this definition, the word ‘relevant‘ is critical. Why? Because depending on your personal profile, your current skillset and your personal financial situation for instance, a life-event like losing your current highly-paid job will be different from the impact on other highly-educated people for instance.

And thus ‘future-proofing’ yourself will have to be an individual exercise with an individual right-skilling plan with a different sense of urgency for all of us individually.
