APJ Abdul Kalam, the former president of India, once whipped up a frenzy amongst his audience with his fiery words: “Knowledge will make you great.” Five words but one hell of a powder keg; within is power unleashed. Dare to ignite it? Come on, light the fuse, it’s time to activate mundane lifestyles into an explosive one. 

Let us get into action. First, we need the knowledge key. Only this will unlock the passion within us into a trajectory of opportunities and possibilities far beyond our wildest expectations. 

Now is the time to take advantage of the ‘promises’ of the new knowledge economy or experiential economy. It is the creation of prime values using human intelligence and fuelled by the migration of jobs to professional ones. The only criteria are for lifelong learners like you and me to embed ourselves with extensive knowledge, industry skills, and the drive to excel. 

Knowledge economy gives everyone the ability to create and innovate new knowledge bordering on vital key openers such as Designing, Engineering, IT, AI, Business Processes, Marketing, Customer Experience, R&D, Media, Education, Culture, Crafts. This value chain comes with links that will spiral into exciting reservoirs of knowledge. You’re transformed into a virtual knowledge bank power-packed with futuristic ideas, inventions, and accomplishments!

You are an architect of change when you empower yourself, you empower society and the rest of humanity. Ours is a world of opportunities, nothing can stop us, not even the COVID-19 pandemic. With the right innovation tools and the right knowledge keys, we have the right technology to create more new designs, new applications, new business modules, and new frontiers. 

 “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” Steve Jobs.

Activate your life! Ignite it! The explosion is inevitable!
