IMO PSYOP needs to be looking critically at 2 things:

First, how will PSYOP remain relevant in the current fight? Most folks mess up by looking at the fight as it was yesterday, instead of looking at what it is today and what it will be tomorrow.

Second, how will PSYOP prepare for future missions? Not just combat, but the full range of DoD and interagency operations. Can you bring capabilities that our country needs, and can you convey those capabilities to decision makers at the appointed/elected levels?

You can and should think about these issues/challenges, but the future of PSYOP depends on how well your branch can convey the right answers to those challenges across the Army, DoD, the Inter-agency, and the Executive and Legislative branches.
Life’s barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you get good at.
