A Strategy Partner in Your Pocket

A common question is: how do I start?

The answer: Start small by integrating AI into simple tasks like professional brainstorming or strategy formulation, which can bring big benefits.

AI tools can generate many ideas, offering invaluable insights that can be refined and utilized. "The best way to have good ideas is to have lots of ideas," Scott notes, highlighting AI's role as a crucial partner in creative and strategic processes.

AI Improves Our Weakness

Studies show AI is most impactful when we use it for tasks we’re not as good at.

AI is a floor raiser.

This might mean your new hires can more quickly achieve proficiency. It also means AI can best do the things you don’t like doing.

AI Changes What Matters

We often use “sweat” as a measure of importance. If someone takes a long time to do something and finishes it, it shows they care.

Teachers ask students to write long papers, bosses ask employees to create detailed reports, and our loved ones enjoy receiving a long letter or email update.

AI changes the connection between sweat and meaning.

If it takes seconds to write an essay or report, it is no longer a proxy for attention and care. Instead, we need to reimagine what creates value in the age of AI.

Most likely, the result will be human attention. Attending a live event, coming to class for a discussion, meeting a client for coffee, joining a video conference, and being present. These in-person events will come to represent importance even more than they do now.

Ironically, in the age when we can connect with anyone anywhere, connecting with someone somewhere will be what matters most.
