Why working like an Artisan will become essential in 2023
Thanks Ed - I agree. It's as exciting as it is scary and as you point out, we don't really have an option other than to step into that scary. We know we can do it (we always have) but perhaps more than ever, the things we fear are not "out there", they are inside.
As I have been thinking about this, I realize that we are at threshold that if we do not cross, life will not just be boring, but lacking purpose. AI is sort of the triumph of human nihilism. For the rudimentary things of life, the things most of us do without thought, AI can do it for us. This is how we flatline society to be “you’ll own nothing and be happy.” So, the two questions that should drive our lives are 1. What can I do that no one else or machine can do? It is the question of human agency. 2. Where do we find meaning in life? It is ultimately a question about human creativity. That does not exist until we create it. It is going to be very interesting to see how New Artisans grows over the next year.
