12. Better have a skill

The next 20 years is going to be cataclysmic for many fields, and some of them will be shocking.

Self driving vehicles will absolutely decimate truck drivers. Automated trucks will eventually be safer. Won't need to stop for breaks. Get better gas mileage. And be much cheaper. Self driving vehicles will eventually eliminate 98% of all driving jobs.

And highly skilled trades won't be immune either. We now have software that can write software. We now have software that can write software and system requirements. Software engineers better know more than just coding.

Machine intelligence is about to pass human intelligence in every measurable way. In our lifetimes AIs will be used for creative engineering solutions over humans. Not sure what will happen, but the changes of the next 50 years will dwarf the changes of the last 50.
