    got 1 more for you...
    To succeed in the new economy, workers will have to learn thoughout their careers, adapt to changing circumstances, and self-motivation will be needed.

    this is my version...

    To succeed in the new economy workers have to learn throughout their career, adapt to changing circumstances and be self-motivated.

    same problem..creat parallel constructions.

    Thank you so much.

    Your revision is good -- you've changed that last one so you have "parallel" verbs: learn, adapt, be

    Your sentence will be better if you put a comma after "circumstances."
