AI is going to obliterate your job. And that’s fantastic news. It will finally free you up to make real money. If you don’t panic, that is. Most people are going to panic. Don’t let that be you. Stick with me. I’ll explain.
If you do a search on google about AI you’re going to find a lot of terrifying things. You’ll see art that’s indistinguishable from the best artists on the planet. You’ll hear how AI can pass college exams and get a high score on an IQ test. For many of you, you’ll even see examples of how AI can do your job better than you can. And this is all with a clunky phase one product. Wait until AI has been on the market for 6 months. Or more terrifyingly, 6 years. No one is safe. It will be that disruptive.
But as I always tell people, moments of disruption present the biggest opportunity. But you’re going to have to be aggressive when everyone else is freaking out.
So… is AI really THAT revolutionary? And if so, how do you really make money with it?
The short answer is yes. AI will be the biggest change not just in your lifetime, but in anyone’s lifetime. It is the ultimate force multiplier. Right now, humans are limited by the rate at which they can think. This determines the rate at which they can solve problems. And as Elon Musk says, people are paid in direct proportion to the difficulty of the problems they solve.
If you try to beat AI, you will lose. What I want to convince you of in this video is that you don’t need to beat AI, you need to use it.
It almost doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, you’re going to be able to do your job better with AI. But you need to get the first mover advantage. To do that, you need to stop researching AI and start using it. At my company, Impact Theory, we’ve already integrated AI into our marketing funnels, our copywriting pipeline, for art concepting, final image generation, creative ideation, and human voice generation. And that’s all just in the last few months.
I’ve been watching Ai closely for a while now, and we’ve reached the elbow of the exponential curve. Things are only going to start moving faster from here. The key is to not get left behind. So don’t waste a single minute lamenting about how things are changing. Change is inevitable, and change at this speed is dangerous if you’re not paying attention.
Given how much AI has already altered our systems, over the next few years, I’m expecting it to majorly accelerate our ability to test and learn. And whoever learns the fastest is going to win.
This is all happening in plain sight. Everyone is talking about it. But to take advantage of this moment, I need you to do three things:
Reframe your thinking around AI. Don’t see it as the enemy. See it as a tool. It really is a tool. You’re not going to be replaced by AI, at least not yet. You’re going to be replaced by a human using AI. Be that human that replaces others.
Figure out how AI is going to disrupt you. Face it head-on. Don’t run. Don’t hide. Identify your vulnerabilities. Identify all of the AI tools that are relevant to you and master them. Learn absolutely everything you can.
Remember, this is the very beginning of a very aggressive revolution. Moving quickly gives you two advantages:
You can rocket ahead of other people by mastering the tools. If you master the tools, people are going to turn to you because you’re able to more efficiently solve problems. Going back to the Elon Musk quote – if you can solve harder problems faster, you’re going to get paid more. And in these early days, while most people are stuck in the “deer in headlights” mode, you have an unfair advantage.
The second advantage that AI gives you is an almost unimaginable amount of efficiency in certain tasks. Don’t get me wrong, AI isn’t a panacea. There are plenty of problems that right now AI sucks at. Sam Altman, the founder of OpenAI, maker of the ubiquitous ChatGPT, has himself said that people are getting so hyped up that they’re going to be disappointed. If you think that this is Terminator 2 already and ChatGPT is going to turn into liquid metal and save you from space aliens, yes, you’re going to be disappointed.
Take action. Learn. Build. Create. Leverage AI and see what you can do together.
