Will AI take my job
It’s just a tool I’ve heard this argument many times over, and I tend to agree here. If we think about AI as simply a tool to leverage for our jobs, then we can liken it to the introduction of the calculator. I like this analogy, as it transcends more than just jobs, there is also the impact these tools have on our education systems. Admittedly, it was well before my time, but I am led to believe the introduction of calculators was met with resistance from educators.
Finding my Why
What do I want to be when I grow up? A Doctor, A Teacher, A Policeman… Here is a question we are all asked from a very early age, and even now at 41 I’ve never had an answer to this question. I’ve just ended up where I am, as I have meandered from one job to the next, without much deliberate consideration as to where I am heading. Recently, kids at my daughter’s school were asked this question.
Lessons from a successful project
A colleague and I recently finished a short 3-week project with a client, the result of which is one very happy client, and an MVP finished before the deadline. Below are the lessons that I learnt during that project.
New years goals
I’ve never been one to set myself new years resolutions, not for any particular reason, I just don’t. However, last year I set myself several goals and/or challenges.
- Read 12 books in 12 months
- 12 blog posts
So how did I go?
It’s time to stop procrastinating… For many years now I’ve spoken on many occasions with colleagues about the importance of keeping a blog, even tonight I interviewed Thiago Passos for SSW TV on his last year or so (still waiting for it to be published), and how he has been working on building his profile, both as a blogger and as a speaker. In closing the interview, I promised Thiago I’d write my first post, and now I’m out of excuses.
