80% of anxiety can be resolved by doing something up front

We will never be ready,

think and do

1. Instead of dwelling on anxiety, act on it

Anxiety comes from the gap between what we want to achieve and the present moment.

Each of us, wrapped up in anxiety, stuck in place, leading to physical and mental exhaustion.

As a reader named Matina wrote yesterday, “This year seems to be all about anxiety: marriage anxiety, 30-year-old anxiety, workplace anxiety, comparison anxiety, and all the other anxieties that tiktok brings every day: the economic downturn, falling consumption, low employment.”

What should we do then?

Tsinghua Professor Peng Kaiping said: All the anxiety, wandering, fear, in fact, only through action to solve. Lying in bed, hiding at home, in that Random Thoughts, doesn’t make any sense, doesn’t make any sense.”

By taking action, we enter a cycle of trial and error, feedback, correction, and progression, no longer governed by the fear of the unknown.

For example, when director Ang Lee was making the wedding banquet, he was hesitant to go ahead because he didn’t have enough money on hand.

When Hou Hsiao-Hsien found out, he encouraged him to say, “No one has enough money to start with, but once you start, you can get results.”.

Finally, “The wedding banquet” won the Golden Bear award at the 43rd Berlin International Film Festival, and Ang Lee won the 30th Taiwan Film Golden Horse Award for Best Director Award for his film.

Many things in the world are like this, no matter how carefully planned, well thought out, can not predict the entire project and events all the development.

What’s more, in such a fast-paced today, the opportunity is unlikely to leave you too much time to think. But as long as you do, there will be“Results.”.

When you’re feeling overwhelmed and anxious about something, the best thing to do is to do it first and validate your thoughts in action.

2. If you’re on the right track, get started

Before we act, we often have an implicit assumption in our subconscious that Wanquan District is the only one prepared to achieve good results.

This assumption can easily lead you to stay in the“False preparation” stage.

You always feel that the preparation is not enough, worry if the action, will not do well, so has been preparing.

In fact, the world is always changing, we can not be fully prepared.

As long as the direction is generally reliable, you can work first, in action to find problems and solve problems.

3. Take action without fear of failure

People with poor execution are more or less perfectionists, whose philosophy is“Do the best you can or do nothing at all.”

This tendency to perfectionism, easy to let people fall into endless preparation and imagination, to the opposite of efficient execution.

To change this, we need to lower our expectations and recognize that failure is a necessary ingredient for success.

In April, SpaceX launched a starship that exploded four minutes after liftoff.

A lot of people feel sorry for Elon Musk. But surprisingly, the moment the rocket exploded, there was applause, applause and even the opening of a bottle of champagne to celebrate.

Why?

Because in Musk’s mind, the extra four minutes, not only is not a failure, but a rocket into space.

Only not afraid of failure, can the courage to act, in the repeated failure in the continuous summary, and finally find the key to success.

4. A master is born of action

“If it doesn’t work out, it will be for nothing,” is what many people do before the mental activity. In contrast, some people get a prototype first, and then a step by step slowly forward, which often open the gap between people.

Once a famous writer came to the school to give a lecture, the topic of the lecture is about the creation and writing.

During the question-and-answer session, one of the students asked: How can ordinary people become novelists?

The author’s answer is simple: today you go back to your dorm room, turn on your computer, click on something called a word document, and type the first word, and you’re a novelist.

This sentence seems very simple, but in fact, after careful understanding, very profound.

How do you become a novelist? The key is not the method, but the action.

Recently, there has been a series on douyin called“The Gears of destiny start to turn.” Many people, before becoming famous, were acting in silence, and eventually became popular because of an accidental factor.

We now look at people who write really well and make really good videos, and we think they’re super capable.

However, whether it is writing an article or making a video, it is a process from shallow to deep, everyone has to go through the transition from a novice to a skilled one, and there is no shortcut.

Three ways to get action

1. The clearer the goal, the stronger the action

When we get stuck in a mood of laziness, idleness, and emptiness, it’s often because the brain is in a fuzzy state.

The brain either doesn’t know what it wants; it wants to do too many things at once to be sure what it wants most; or it knows what it wants to do but doesn’t know when or how it wants to do it.

We face too many multiple choice problems, too many options, and because we do not have a clear understanding of their own, do not know what is most important to themselves, so in the case of information overload, often at a loss.

How can you make your brain clearer?

In the book cognitive awakening, there is a stupid way to do this: write it down.

The first step: find an ordinary a 5 card face copy, fold the page in half;

Step 2: Write Down All the things you want to do that day at the top, then clear your mind and number the items in order of weight

Step 3: gather all available information, write down predictably on the left side of the page what you’re doing at a certain time, and then count“Planned learning time” and“Available learning time” at the bottom, time became clear;

Step 4: record the implementation of the day on the right side of the page, one day later, the learning time and learning results statistics, time efficiency at a glance.

When we act, we are afraid of ambiguity. If we have a lot of vague options in our mind, we need to spend time making choices, and making choices is a very mental exercise.

But the simple act of“Writing it down” takes all the thoughts and thoughts out of our head, so we don’t have to think or make choices in order to execute.

At this point, you may have such a question: the plan so rigid, will not let yourself become rigid?

Not really, because the point of planning is not to stick to the plan, but to keep yourself informed.

It doesn’t matter if your plans change for the day. With this plan, you’ll be able to quickly get yourself back on track after you’ve dealt with a temporary task.

But without it, you’re more likely to choose entertainment when your goals and time are fuzzy.

2. Be a fool

A lot of people with poor execution are actually very smart people. Why?

Because they think two things before they act:

First, everything must be seen in the clear results before action, if the prospects are uncertain, uncertain, even if others say that again reasonable, but also unwilling to invest;
Second, if a principle or method can not change themselves quickly, it is not optimal, so keep looking, so there is hope to find the best way.

Because this kind of thinking inertia, often in the action will let us get stuck: a thing persisted for a period of time, do not see the obvious effect, will hesitate to give up.

In fact, as long as the truth is right, do not care about those little clever, with no loss of mind forward, you will find that the goal is more and more clear.

Because before we do anything, we see the world as two-dimensional, flat. However, after doing something actively, we can see the three-dimensional, three-dimensional world from a side view, and notice the cognitive differences between people.

In a three-dimensional world, people at high levels and people at low levels often have very different attitudes to the same problem.

For example, “Deliberate learning” describes it like this: you think that education is useless because you have no idea how much learning can change your life trajectory; you think that exercise is useless, … It’s because you don’t exercise that you don’t feel the value of it…

People at the next cognitive level often don’t see the landscape of the next, and so can only judge from a narrow perspective: these things make sense, but they don’t seem to be working.

These things are really useless in their eyes, because people can not prove that a thing did not happen. The only way to break this paradox is to get yourself moving and take your cognition to a higher level so that you can make different judgments.

Many of us want to find our purpose before we act. In fact, if we don’t act, we may never find our purpose. After all, we rely on low-level perceptions and experiences, it’s hard to see what we really want. Only by following the assumptions of predecessors to a higher level, life goals may slowly emerge.

3. Know and act together to increase awareness in action

Count the difficult things in this world, “The unity of knowledge and practice” must count as one.

There are too many people do not understand why their“Know so much truth, but still a bad life.”. In fact, the reason is simple: they read a lot of reasonable books, collected a lot of reasonable articles, feel that they know everything, but still can not bend down to action.

Because they always think that they are not ready, worried that the method is not optimal, rash action will take a detour, etc. , but do not know, such a wait-and-see, waiting itself is inefficient.

So how can we change the status quo of“Knowing but not doing”?

First, don’t settle for“Having or knowing”.

The moment we buy a book, it feels great, like we already have the knowledge, but when we receive the book, it’s probably just a quick flip

When we understand that“One day without looking at the phone will not have any loss”, the mind suddenly clear, the harm of mobile phone information to see very clearly, but a few days later, when this happens again, we put our books aside again and take out our phones to play.

No matter how good the truth is, if you don’t practice it, these beautiful knowledge will never have a real impact on yourself.

Second, don’t try to do it right from the start.

Everything is difficult at the beginning, even if we learn a lot of truth and methods, but once done, often all kinds of mistakes.

Many people at this stage, afraid of being laughed at, afraid of their image is destroyed, afraid of the wrong method, may give up.

In fact, we should learn to use a mature attitude to contain their initial clumsiness. Through continuous practice, eliminate the gap between“Knowing” and“Doing”, and experience the pleasure of“Doing”.

Third, do not struggle to do great things, great people do not delay

There is a good saying: “Do not struggle to do great things, great people do not delay.”

Whoever can achieve great things can always achieve the unity of knowledge and action, while the mediocre has built a Great Wall of China between “Knowledge” and “Action”.

Therefore, the quickest way to realize the ideal is to make clear what you want, to be firm in your choice, to do what you say without hesitation.

You know, we’ll never be“Ready,” but we can do it, and when we hear our hearts calling, we start running.

At this point, you will even find the magic of fate-running, you will find that you are getting closer and closer to the goal you are looking for, want to get closer.

Life, in the final analysis, is a journey of self-exploration.

A lot of the time, mediocrity or excellence lurks in the actions we take in our daily lives. The most important thing is not what you thought, but what you did in the end.

Set the direction, run, do not fear failure, the key to success in action.

Are You Ready to fight back?

1. The great psychologist Adler, who devoted his life to the study of man and his potential, once declared that he had discovered one of the most incredible features of the human race — “Man has a power of Necessary Roughness.”

2. Harrie Ralph Waldo Emerson Fosdick restated it in the 20th century, “True happiness is not necessarily a joy, but rather a victory.” Yes, happiness comes from a sense of accomplishment, a triumph over, the experience of squeezing a lemon into juice.

3. The most important thing in life is not to invest what you have. Anyone can do that. What matters is how to profit from the loss. Only then needs the wisdom, also only then displays human’s superior wisdom and inferior foolishness.

Four. According to the philosopher Nitze, good and distinguished people “Not only tolerate what they can not tolerate, but are willing to take up the challenge”.

5. The more I study successful people, the more convinced I am that a large part of their success is due to a flaw that unlocks their potential. William. James once said: our greatest weakness may provide us with an unexpected boost.

Yes, John Milton might not have written such a wonderful poem if he hadn’t lost his sight.

Beethoven, on the other hand, may have been deaf, which allowed him to compose more moving music.

The Helen Keller’s creative career was inspired entirely by deafness and blindness.

If the Chaykovsky’s marriage had not been so miserable that he almost killed himself, he might not have been able to compose the monumental “Pathetique”.

Both Tolstoj and Dostoyevsky were able to write beautiful novels because of their tragic fates.

6. A self-pitying person will not stop pitying himself, even if he or she is snug on the sofa. On the contrary, people who don’t care about their environment are often happy. They are extremely rich in personal responsibilities and never shirk them. I repeat, the Resolute Eskimos are the product of the icy arctic winds.”

Seven. If we are so discouraged that we don’t see any hope of change-here are two reasons we should at least try, two reasons to make sure we try for the better and not for the worse.

The first reason: we might succeed.

The second reason: even if we don’t succeed, the very nature of this effort forces us to look forward, not just regret, to banish negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones. It stimulates creativity, keeps us busy, and leaves us no time or mood to grieve over things that are already in the past.

8. The most important thing in life is not just to use what you have. Anyone can do that. The really important issue is how to profit from your losses. This requires real wisdom and shows how stupid people are.

Think of Elon Musk’s autobiography, “Life Is Mine”, written by his mother, Meyer Musk:

During the first nine years of his marriage, Meyermusk suffered frequent domestic violence and PUA from his husband. After struggling for nine years, Meyermusk finally succeeded in divorcing his scumbag husband, even though he had to take care of three children and work four jobs by himself after the divorce, he was also frequently threatened, intimidated and harassed by his ex-husband. In such a bad situation, to make a living, Meyermasque to work four jobs, and not much time to take care of the children. But thanks to the proximity of his home library, Elon Musk’s favorite activity was going to the library and reading a lot of books, and it was in his childhood that he set out to explore the moon.

Meyermusk was so busy with his work that his Three Meals a Day was extremely simple. His three children also disliked his mother’s cooking as a nutritionist, so his second son especially liked to cook for his family, the second son later set up his own business in the field of organic food and beverage.

The younger daughter fell in love with acting and drama at an early age, and Meyermusk was equally supportive of the younger daughter’s interests.

Single Mother Mayermusk has single-handedly raised one of the world’s richest men, and her second son and youngest daughter are also quite successful in their own field. Although the three children had a difficult childhood, they had plenty of free time to explore and develop their interests and develop them into a life-long career, enjoying it and climbing to new heights.

Despite a bad marriage, Meyermusk is still optimistic, gritting her teeth and beating the odds. A single mother has raised three children to excel in different fields, she worked three or four jobs to support her family, while continuing her education and earning her doctorate, and eventually focusing on her love of modeling. She became the most beautiful and attractive silver-haired model, and a model for the new era.

Ai gonna put us out of business? This article explains the future, impact and possibilities of Ai

The first quarter of the 2023 is AI’s. With CHATGPT, New Bing, GPT-4, Google Bard, MidJourney v 5, Adobe Firefly… … a series of names came out, and many people finally began to understand and accept the fact that AI is not far away, it is changing our world.
In just one month from February to March, there were hundreds of applications based on the OpenAI API, ranging from research and reading to analytics and programming. The Giants are coming in, trying to plug AI into their products. Internet also because of AI trend, ushered in more than a decade has not seen a new situation.
Once again, the age-old question is:Now that AI is so mature, will it take our place?
The interesting fact is that what we thought was the easiest thing for AI to do, was the most labor-intensive work at the bottom, and the least easy was the work that involved creativity, thought and emotion — but it turns out, it’s just a human fantasy.
Here’s the reality: MidJourney and Stable Diffusion have been tuned and controlled to produce realistic AI drawings and even simulate photos. The ability to take pride in human beauty, in the face of AI, is just a group of noise following a pattern.
Thinking? CHATGPT already has the ability to talk to users in natural language, answer questions, refine text, refine information, and write drafts. Microsoft’s New Bing and Google’s Bard, combined with web search capabilities, combine real-time data and predictive models to help us aggregate information and tell us directly.
What about emotions? Accompany, communicate, comfort, listen, these can also use AI to do? Regrettably, there has been some exploration in psychology of using AI to design robots that can perform CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) , with good results. As for simple conversation and listening, to the large language model, but a piece of cake.
As for front-end design, financial analysis, financial consulting, text editing… … these jobs are just incidental to AI. They’re not even the main object of AI, but they are naturally addressed by AI.
On the contrary, because AI does not have the ability to perceive the real world and does not understand the laws of physics, it can only use sensors to roughly simulate the perception of the real world, so when it comes to“Action” and“Action” jobs, AI is at a very low level right now, not even as low as a two-or three-year-old, it is also difficult to break through in the foreseeable future — this is known as “Moravec’s paradox”.
So how will AI affect our lives in the future for some time to come? Will many people lose their jobs because of this?
To answer this question, we need to delve deeper into the question: What Role Does Ai play in our lives and production models?

The AI that we’re implementing now, including the AI that we’ll be able to implement in the foreseeable future, is not really AGI, it’s instrumental AI.
What is General Artificial Intelligence? In short, it’s an AI that, like humans, can think independently, understand the situation, and deal with the general problems that humans face, which is what we see in science fiction. If such AI were to emerge, it would surely replace most jobs and bring about unprecedented change, no doubt about it.
The good news is that such AI is still out of reach for humans, and we’re unlikely to achieve it now, or even in the foreseeable future.
The type of AI we currently implement, whether it’s the large-scale language model (LLM) behind ChatGPT, or the Diffusion algorithm on which AI paintings are based, is essentially a kind of context-specific training, fed with huge amounts of data, a type of model from which it learns the patterns and rules of the data.
They have data-processing capabilities that humans can not match, but their range and limits are inherently“Locked in,” allowing them to perform only the specific tasks they are trained to perform, and they can not spontaneously develop“Subjectivity.”.
General artificial intelligence, for example, is like a computer, and the AI that we’re implementing now is like a vacuum cleaner and a washing machine, and they’re much better at doing certain tasks than humans are, but they are unlikely to exceed their designed ceilings.
Of course, just as machines replace workers, tool-based AI is bound to have a big impact on our work. So let’s take a look: How will current (and short-term) tool AI change our lives?
OpenAI recently published a paper that provides an interesting perspective. In this paper, OpenAI lists 2,087“Detailed Work Activities”(DWA) . A process is the smallest unit of work that can be done, and a job may consist of multiple processes. For example, “Decision” is a job, it may be“Gathering information”, “Assessment of priorities” and other processes.
OpenAI then asked humans and GPT-4 to assess whether using AI could reduce the time of a process by more than 50% if the quality of the process remained the same, then it’s replaceable — OpenAI’s term is“Exposure to Ai.”. If most processes of a job are exposed to AI, then the job is exposed to AI.
OpenAI’s conclusion: after a joint assessment of humans and GPT-4, approximately 80% of occupations we know of will have at least one job exposed to AI, and 19% of occupations will have half of their jobs exposed to GPT.
Here are some concrete examples:


This chart shows exposure rates for different occupations. You can see the 100% part, which means that as AI develops, all the jobs in these classes will be exposed to AI. Which occupations. The tables list these: mathematicians, tax filers, financial quantitative analysis, writers, web and front-end developers…

Many people understand this as: does this mean that these industries will be replaced by AI, will be unemployed? Does that mean that 19% of the industry, at least half of the people will be out of work?
。Not really. Why don’t I use the word“Substitute” instead of the word“Exposure”? That’s because it’s not meant to be a substitute, it’s meant to be efficient. Instead of saying, “Half the people in these industries will be replaced by AI,” we should say, “The people in these industries will more than double their output.”.
Many people may say: this is not a replacement? A task, originally 10 people need to do six months, now become 5 people six months, that does not mean that there are 5 people may be laid off?
Not So, for the simple reason that demand increases.
What does it mean for an industry to double its output? That means its revenue and barriers to entry will be much lower. Obviously, more people will want to enter the industry. As long as the industry is not saturated, its demand and capacity is bound to rise.
When demand rises in many of these industries, it drives up and down the chain, making the chain more dynamic and efficient, creating more demand and more jobs, form a virtuous circle.
To take the simplest example: e-commerce certainly had a huge impact on offline consumption, but did e-commerce destroy the consumer industry? Of course not. As a result, e-commerce has greatly lowered the threshold for everyone to participate, allowing more people to join in. As a result, driven upstream factories, brands, supply chain, downstream logistics, warehousing… … the consumer sector has not been destroyed, it has prospered.
Similarly: Game Studios may not need as much art, but at the same time, the lower barriers to entry make more people willing to join in, so there may be several times the emerging studio;. If the cycle of novel creation is reduced, it may lead to lower costs and higher output in the publishing and film industries, then more people may devote themselves to novel creation and write more works…
Tool AI has no subjectivity, it is always needed to use, and everyone’s time and energy is limited. As long as this society still has a high degree of division of labor, there must be a large number of needs can be met.
I want to translate a book, I want to design a website, I want to edit a video, and of course I can let Ai do it — , but I can’t do everything myself, I must have something I need to hand over to someone else. A lot of this demand, combined, could create enormous jobs at the acceleration of AI.
In other words: Ai does not bring about unemployment, but to the value exchange of society as a whole more detailed and more effective.
A lot of people will find out: many things that they wanted to do but couldn’t do before, now suddenly have corresponding service to be able to realize; also a lot of people will find: many skills that they have mastered, under the blessing of AI, now it can be put to better use.

There must, of course, be a ceiling on this increase in demand. As more and more people get involved, competition will intensify and prices will fall until the market is saturated with competition-after all, we may not need as many games, novels, and movies, it must have an upper limit.
But if you accept that the world as a whole is far from the limit of economic growth, that there is a lot of unmet needs, that there is a lot of time that is not being used — then, the development of AI makes the whole world move in a more prosperous and abundant direction, which is a matter of high probability.
What is the role of AI in this sense? Is a catalyst.
Our Society, is made up of many, many complex systems, made up of chains, where every link in the chain is in the Exchange value of demand and supply. However, because of all kinds of resources and practical factors, the operation of many chains is not good enough, there are many cards, slow, broken place. This leads to misallocation and invalidation of resources.
For example, you must have the feeling that there are a lot of movies and TV shows on the market, but nothing I want to see, I can’t find what I want to see, maybe the producers don’t know or won’t consider my needs, or, i have an idea, I want to make it out, and I’m sure it will help a lot of people, but the time and economic cost is too high, I have to regret giving up.
This is the failure of resources. This is what happens in most industries. Demand and supply can not be well connected, or supply loop is too long, it is difficult to timely and effective formation of feedback.

The core role of AI was to open up the areas where the cards were slow and broken, so that the loops could operate more quickly and smoothly, accelerating the flow of information and value.
The intuitive feeling is that the world is getting faster and more accurate: many products can be updated faster, many small and beautiful products can be created, … Many small needs can be seen, attention and satisfaction, many stay in the idea of things, can be achieved…
This is not imagination, but the reality of what is happening.
What if society as a whole were to develop along these lines?
AI will be the connector to everything. At that time, AI will become a brand-new, huge interface, connecting everything together, connecting all information and resources.
At that time, AI will become the new“Internet” and all future products and services will be connected to AI. “Using AI” will become a commonplace, as we once said, “Surfing the internet”, as an obsolete term.
We can simply imagine some scenarios:
Write a program, you can tell AI requirements, it will automatically help us determine the framework, complement the code, we just need to do some improvement. If you have a problem, ask the AI for a possible solution, which will automatically connect to the knowledge base on the web and help us diagnose it.
Graphic Design, you can use their own work training AI model, combined with customer AI written needs, generating concept sketches, after selection to improve, we can use AI to help complete the details, textures, patterns, we just need to do some fine-tuning.

In product development, AI can help us analyze user needs, extract the most critical improvement suggestions from a large number of interviews and feedback; it can also help us complete the prototype design, functional logic, product testing, data collection… … all we have to do is steer and make decisions.
In daily work, we only need to focus on work, AI will automatically collect our data, upload to the terminal inside, fully automatic real-time project management, resource scheduling, task assignment. At the same time, AI can integrate the data of various departments, find potential problems, timely warning.
In scientific research, AI can help us predict and design new drugs to solve difficult problems, and it can analyze the published literature in different fields to get potential topics and research directions, it even provides possible experimental designs and methods to assist us in scientific research and exploration.
Socially, it can analyze our life data and social media to match us with friends and romantic partners who are better suited to us. If you want to be alone, you can have your own chatbot that comes and goes whenever you want, without expending too much energy on meaningless social interactions.
As for daily life, everyone would have their own AI assistant, based on their own diaries, documents, reading records, work data training, familiar with their own preferences and habits. It becomes our“Second Brain”, giving us advice and opinions, from which decisions are better, to which clothes and movies suit us better…
Some of these scenarios are preliminary, some may be some distance away, but they are not far away. By then, we will no longer live only in the physical world, in the Internet, but also in AI.
At that time, our tentacles and possibilities will be greatly extended. We can put a lot of tedious, repetitive daily work to AI, to free up more time, to learn new things, new technologies, to think about New Directions, new ideas, to explore new possibilities, new lives.

The development of AI, of course, is not entirely without cause for alarm.
From an individual perspective, AI will be everyone’s“Amplifier”-AI will amplify your original capabilities. The more skills you have, the better your knowledge system, the more possibilities and value you can reach with AI.
The simple truth is that AI makes it easier to learn. So obviously, the better you are at learning, the more AI will help you. This will set you apart from everyone else, and it will only get worse.
Similarly, AI can greatly increase“Output”. Then, the faster and better your original output, the more effective AI will be to you. This leads to a head-clustering effect, which improves the overall quality of the industry while also making it easier for some of the bottom players to be eliminated.
So, although in the previous analysis, I argued that society as a whole could function more efficiently and better with AI, at the same time, it could also increase inequality and widen the gap between people, it is entirely possible to make the industry update faster and people have to“Run for their lives” to avoid being eliminated from the industry.
So, in the face of the AI wave, my point has always been this:
1) to specialize in their own strengths and professional areas, and constantly improve their professional level.

think about how to apply AI to your major to improve your output and efficiency.

3) constantly receive new information, embrace new changes, expand their horizons, reach out to more people and industries, think about what can collide with their new spark.
Don’t think of Ai as a monster, think of it as a weapon. This weapon, if you can use it, so can others. Our adversary is not the weapon itself, but the other armed men.


From the perspective of the society as a whole, there is also a hidden danger that can not be ignored: that is the social exploitation, alienation and discipline of individuals.
When the machine was invented, many people felt that it could replace workers, and that workers would no longer have to work so hard — really? We know that history is not like that. The development of machines led to the construction of a large number of factories, more demand emerged, but workers still need to work hard. This is not the fault of the machine, but the nature of the profit-seeking capital.
When computers appeared, many people felt that they could solve problems beyond the reach of human beings, so we could rest easy. Really? No. We are more tied to computers and forced to work wherever and whenever we want. Our Time is being cut more into smaller pieces to meet emerging needs and tasks. Society as a whole accelerates, but so does the workload.
When cell phones came along, many people felt that our access to the world had been greatly broadened. But as it turns out, our minds and lives are much more confined to this tiny screen, drawn to an endless stream of social media, news and entertainment, dominated by“Fomo”(fear of missing out) and the hijacking of reward circuits. Our field of vision shrinks instead.
Technological leaps and breakthroughs, in addition to increasing the productivity of society as a whole, often have the effect of exacerbating social Matthew effect.
People with more resources will always have more choices, and will be more able to benefit from the social chain. But the social chain works at a cost, and it can lead to more jobs, higher social expectations and standards, and a firmer grip on busyness.
The whole social chain may run faster and smoother, but its effects are likely to be more concentrated among the rich. And the burden of the operation of the social chain load, may be you, I, is each of us.
This is a serious issue and one that may require the whole society to think about how to deal with it.

Finally, a word to add:
In the near future, with the development of AI, there will be a period of“Labor Pains”. Old Jobs have been accelerated, optimized and replaced, but new industries have not yet developed, there is bound to be a relatively chaotic period, there may be many people will be affected.
But this is also a time when a wave of demand and opportunity can be found to its benefit.
Encourage with each friend.
