Will AI steal my job?
Estimated read time: 1 min 27 secs
Here are three things I read or learned recently that I think are kinda cool.
✅ Actions Reveal Values
Derek Sivers wanted to start a new company, but his coach said his actions proved he didn't really want it.
“You’ve been talking about this new company idea since 2008, but never launched it. Looking at your actions, and knowing you, I’d say that you don’t really want to start another company. You actually prefer the simple life you have now, focused on learning, writing, and playing with your kid. No matter what you say, your actions reveal the truth.”
The takeaway here is that people should stop lying to themselves and admit their true priorities, OR start doing what they say they want to do to see if it's really true.
🤖 Will AI Replace Us?
I ask an artificial intelligence software some questions about the job market. Here are its responses:
AI will replace jobs that are repetitive, predictable and don't require a lot of creativity or empathy. Jobs like data entry, customer service, and some types of manufacturing.
AI will augment software engineers, not replace them. AI is still in its infancy and requires a lot of human input to be effective.
AI will help marketers, but I don't think it will replace them. AI can help marketers make better decisions, but it can't replace the creativity and intuition that marketers bring to the table.
💸 Betting on Things That Never Change
Many people ask Jeff Bezos the question: “What’s going to change in the next 10 years?”
But almost no one asks Jeff Bezos, “What’s not going to change in the next 10 years?”
This means it can be very profitable for more people to start their businesses or make career choices by betting on things that don’t change.
Here are some timeless things that people will always want more of:
Faster solutions to problems.
Greater control over our time.
Higher social status.
Deeper human interactions.
