Kristen Lamb writes about imagination and robots and how the one can replace the other… Thank you for your insight and wisdom Kristen.
Imagination is fundamental to success in, well, pretty much everything. Yet, strangely, many thought-leaders and experts are pushing humans to hone skills that robots can do a billion times better and faster (like working 24/7).
Problem is, if we train like robots, think like robots, and act like robots, we’re doomed to be replaced by them.
Our best insurance for rising to the top of our profession—ANY profession—is to refine what’s essentially human. We’re wise to become the best in those areas where computers, apps, and robots don’t hold massive advantage.
These areas require a robust right brain and well-developed imagination…which might just entail a lot of ‘wasting time.’
How This Started
As y’all might know, I consume a ridiculous amount of books…all kinds of books. Novels of every genre, non-fiction, self-help, books about business, leadership, finance, and entrepreneurship.
Recently, I started listening to Daymond John’s Rise and Grind. Why? Because I loved, loved, loved The Power of Broke and recommend that book to everyone…all the time.
I’ve listened that book it at least six times and learn something new with every pass.
