I just read a fantastic article about AI, deep thinking and creativity, titled “AI: The Unseen Ally in Mastering Deep Work“.
The article is from the excellent website “Unmistakable Creative“. I highly recommend subscribing to their newsletter.
It starts with a quote from Cal Newport, author of the book “Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World.”
To remain valuable in our economy, therefore, you must master the art of quickly learning complicated things. This task requires deep work. If you don’t cultivate this ability, you’re likely to fall behind as technology advances.Cal Newport- Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World
The article says that to stay valuable in our economy, you must quickly learn complicated things. This needs deep work and thinking. If you don’t develop this skill, you might fall behind as technology moves forward.
AI is excellent at helping us with tasks, but it requires human input. You have to ask it to do something before it can act. The more you think and understand a topic, using clear language to request what you want, the better AI will perform.
Humans excel at deep thinking and creativity. So keep doing that, and use AI to support your efforts.
Two key aspects are understanding things (deep work) and using clear, concise English to ask questions. This still needs deep thinking, and learning to write clearly since many of us have lost that ability.
In summary, AI is fantastic for helping you master complex tasks more quickly. It’s an interesting article that shows how AI can be our ally in achieving success through deep work and thinking, and creativity.
