How many pencils are there in your business?

About 40% (5 million) of Australian jobs will disappear in the next 10 - 15 years due to technological advances according to this report.

I've been wondering if these will include the 75000 people who have been manually counting the votes that we all made with a pencil Saturday week ago in the Australian Federal election.

The Opposition Leader conceded defeat and the Prime Minister claimed victory only yesterday, and bizarrely we still don't know the final results!

Apparently we don't yet have the technology we can trust that would enable most people to ditch the pencil and vote electronically.

This got me thinking. Where in my business am I using pencil technology and manual labour when there are more productive ways to work if there was more trust?

Odd question yet I hope it's gets you thinking, being, and doing as you begin another week on the journey of being the best version of yourself.

Be remarkable.
