The New Renaissance

We are before a change of era is evident, the changes both in knowledge, consumption and way of life are giving rise to new paradigms in our society.

We are moving from the modern age to another stage of humanity, which might be known as the new Renaissance, by their similarities with the period of the XV and XVI centuries.


I will tell you why: The Renaissance took place at the end of the Middle Ages, after which Europe and Asia were razed by the black plague.

The human being I fully trust in God and the Church, since they had not served their prayers to stop the epidemic and for the first time in a long time felt alone.
It is therefore replaced the medieval theocentrism by anthropocentrism, i.e. put man at the center instead of to God.

Meanwhile natural barrier of the Sahara, prevented the plague be extended toward the south and traders of salt of this area came to African cities as Timbuktu where the exchanged for gold. Gold that came to Europe to Venice where it was founded the modern banking. The first bankers were made millionaires and were some of the patrons of the Renaissance.

The Renaissance was the period of greatest popularity of learning and culture of mankind. It raised a new way of seeing the world and the human being, with new approaches in the fields of the arts, politics, philosophy and sciences.

artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael were devoted to create, to propose, transmitting ideas and innovate.

Fortunately in our time we have not suffered an epidemic as the black plague, but the major wars and the recent financial crisis, which has overthrown several States, which has our confidence in the institutions has disappeared and that on many occasions we alone.


Unlike in the Renaissance today we all have access to the information and the means of production. In fact the important thing now is not to know or to have many things but know connecting, to generate ideas and make that have an impact on the people, producing a change in them.

today we can all be artists and the new gold is the disruptive innovation, that makes the value of our actions grow exponentially.

banking that was founded in Venice is faltering and accordingly are emerging new ways to manage our wealth, as the cryptographic currencies.

We are in a new era the new economy is a blank sheet on which you can paint what you want, when you want and how you want. Nobody will be to say what you have to do and the result will depend on the host that you do for a few people who will be your customers.

A canvas where you can paint. What happens is that with the education that we have had, instead of seeing a blank canvas on many occasions we perceive as black and not know what to do. Here I will try to bring some light and new colors with which to draw.

But before, leaving behind the Renaissance artists, we will see that it has been occurring more recently:

Seeing superb movie of Chaplin 1936 "Modern Times", where The person was part of a gear in a factory, has to go to their time, do what you say your head and do not complain. Little importance to its ideals and what you do to get out of there. If we look it is easy to realize that many of these things have been happening during a large part of the twentieth century and even in our days there are jobs of this type. Perhaps not so much in factories as well as in the who worked Chaplin, but if conditions of submission and alienation similar.

Thus we arrive at situations where people spend their life doing jobs that we help them to develop personally, where they are going to tell them what they must do, receiving a payment and expect to arrive on Friday.

We have supported these conditions for so long because the promise associated with it was so powerful and attractive that costs a lot to understand that no longer exists.

Know someone, form a family, endeúdate buying a house, a car (better than your neighbor), go on a holiday and you still see the television that we'll tell you what you have to buy. And do not worry that if agachas the head and you meet in your work you will be rewarded.

A few days ago we began 2017 and we are faced with a double revolution digital and global (something that never before had happened).

serve as an example of the time they have taken different technologies to reach the 100 million users:

1878
Mobile Phone 75 years 1979 16 years
2004 Facebook 4 years, 6 months
2009 WhatsApp 3 years, 4 months
2010 Instagram 2 years, 4 months
2012 Cady Crush Saga 1 year, 3 months

2016 Pokemon go 30 days

advances in molecular biology, dizzy of the brain, Nanotechnology, new sources of energy… It is expected that in 20 years are made so much progress as in the two preceding millennia, in 10 years more than half of the jobs that we know today will disappear in 5 years everything to make a robot, will make you a robot.

This is thus the key is that we take it as a threat or as an opportunity.

For example, a few days ago I went to the flagship store of Zara in A Coruña. There you have a machine that lets you charge, remove the alarm from the clothing and putting it in a bag. If you are a dependent of Zara, you can see it in two ways. Think that approximately 25% of the people who work in the shop you are in housing and with this machine will be replaced; or think that you'll finally get rid of the routine tasks of collection and remove alarms, exit the tour, take a step forward and to look at what you really like, advising on the buying in function to the complexion of the people, the color of the skin, hair, trends… that is to say, to be a stylist.

The introduction of new machines, contrary to what many people believe, will not provide a greater automation of the shares but a tendency to generate connections between people value.

The differences in value provided are increasing exponentially and accordingly the remuneration to who generates it. And while the value of some will grow without stopping the other tends to zero.

The value of the stylist in this case will increase, while the cashier will be null.

Be in one another group is crucial and then i some tracks that you could run to be in the that interests you most.

Know yourself

Stop and think about your personality, use tools such as the enegrama, analyze your behaviors to determine is what you want to do when you want to do it, with whom, when and as. Now we must not confine ourselves to a few hours or live in a certain place for our work impacts on other people. Connect, choose what you come better and do it.

is that it is not easy, it is hard and painful at times, believe me it is very good. But it is also a process in which you will know better to yourself, you will know who is really at your side, profundizaras in your abilities and recognize the things that really matter and all of this will make the person you are to grow and connect with other and this will lead to a new Renaissance.

and reminding the sculptors and Renaissance painters, we must understand our art such as the delivery of a personal gift that transforms those who receive it. This gift part of each one and the way in which decide delivery will depend on him, can be: an object, a design, a service, a lecture, a post… but please, art beam. What we need.

Choose your why

Define which will be your great professional objective. You would like to change or improve in your industry throughout your career. This will help you to design your strategies and define your actions. In addition is the "place" where you agarrarás when things do not go as you wish. Will help you to find your gem. That phrase you summarized as professional, that indicates your purpose and style. In this sense we must see the studies as a tool to achieve our objectives, not that these are the true objective. Prepare our own projects, focus our own deadlines and make that collide with the market.

Communicate to

tell the world what you do with your own voice. Have a blog today is highly recommended a space where you can express who you are, as you understand your industry and you can bring. From here the social networks can amplify what you do. An interesting use of them is to set a goal for each one and create content in relation to this. Used as a channel for personal communication, not as a publicity channel.

Contact
connect with people in a genuine way. where there is a win-win clear. Do not search likes, nor followers, but people who can contribute and give and you can learn and receive. Learn how to do things in other sectors, can help you open your field of vision and eventually introduce some things on yours.
Since we can choose and learn from the best.

Be authentic

always gives your personal vision of things. Can like or not, but you can always. Do not try to please everyone. This is what I do, this is my vision and may not be for you. It does not matter. I can not please everybody. Do not compare. It makes no sense to com

I know that it´s that it is not easy, it is hard and painful at times, believe me it is very good. But it is also a process in which you will know better to yourself, you will know who is really at your side, profundizaras in your abilities and recognize the things that really matter and all of this will make the person you are to grow and connect with other and this will lead to a new Renaissance.
