Prophet of industries! │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

Every industry has a prophet and by that I am not just referring to the experts in the industry but some few people who have distinguished themselves well enough for the entire workforce of an industry to rely on their wisdom and opinion in determining the next phase of such industries! These ones are different from those you can easily refer to as experts of the industry because the experts rely absolutely on their previous experiences and some standards already existing in the industry. As for the prophets of industries, they are the ones who have gone the extra mile to saying the things that will happen in the industry in the nearest future or even determining how the industry is run!

In banking for example, our banking systems used to be run in very old ways and some of those people in the banking industry did not see the technological age coming. They sat with all the books and thought it would remain that way. Unfortunately some of them did not only sit down with the books, they also refused to embrace change when the change began to come. Eventually when things started changing in the banking industry, some people started losing their jobs and some banks had to close their shops, sorry, offices! That’s just one out of several examples of how people could have saved their jobs or businesses by listening to prophets of industries but they never did!

One important thing for you to note is that if you want to build a successful business or career in any line, you must find out who the prophets of those industries are and listen to them. How would you find out the prophets in your industries? I think you need to begin to ask questions about those who have been in the industry long enough to tell you what you can do to succeed and what you must never do if you want to last. You also have to take it a step further to find out those who know about changing trends in the industry and how quick or rapid the change in the industry is. Amongst all the other things that you need to find out, it is important for you to take it a step further by asking questions on what to expect in the industry in the next 5 to 10 years. All the previous questions I have laid out can be answered by any self-professed expert but only the prophets of industries can answer questions about what to expect from the industry and planning along that line!

I am also of the opinion that you should not just work with the predictions of some other people in the industry that you belong to but you need to build yourself as well. Build yourself to that level where you also dictate the pace of the industry that you are in! it is one level of business to have a plan and it is another level of business to know what can happen in the industry and to plan along the line of what to expect from the industry! There are so many people who want to do businesses and they are writing their plans without any idea of what to expect from the industry! Such people are going to be shocked somewhere along the line because all their planning would just be based on book knowledge of planning!

You can save your business and career a lot of stress! When you listen to those I can the industry prophets, you will quickly what trainings you need to take in order to be relevant to the next business generation. Think now! Who are the industry prophets in your chosen line? What are they saying about the next 10 years in your industry? What do you need to do to stay relevant in the future that your industry prophets are predicting? Be wise about this and be prepared for change!
