Today, I want to go back to some wisdom we briefly touched on from Yuval’s new book.
For our Optimizing purposes, I’s say THIS is the most important line in his whole book:
“For every dollar and every minute we invest in improving artificial intelligence, we’d be wise to invest a dollar and a minute in advancing human consciousness.”
Today’s +1: How about a quick personal accounting?
First: How much time and money do YOU spend on “artificial intelligence”?
It’s pretty much impossible to calculate that because everything from your smartphone and your smartwatch to your Facebook feed and Amazon account are driven by AI. So, for the sake of discussion, let’s just say you’re spending a LOT of time and money on AI. (Laughing.)
Now, how much time and money are you spending on advancing your consciousness?
Again, it’s tough to quantify that but unless you’re like Harari and investing TWO HOURS A DAY into your meditation practice, you’re probably not investing anywhere near enough.
Any ideas on how you can invest a little more time and money into advancing your consciousness?
What’s one thing you can (and will!) do Today?
Fantastic. Have fun with that.
High fives and +1s!!!
btw: You know what “advancing your consciousness” could also be called?
(Let’s do this!!! More high fives and +1s!!! 🤓)
