It’s 2020 and I work no more.
Whatever analytical strategic creative marketing job I thought I was worth doing, well, not true anymore. Robots do it better, cheaper, faster. Watson® is the Number One in every enterprise. Now I understand why the Holodeck crashed when Sherlock Holmes setups where displayed.
At least I was mindful enough (yes, mindful, not clever since robots are way smarter than me) to use my time and energy to design a not-so-perfect exit strategy. It is now when I realize it was worth the blood, toil, sweat and tears. It’s 2020 and I’m happy teaching Spanish, yoga and mindfulness meditation to hippies revivalists down in some beach in Costa Rica or Atitlán, for God’s sake. Mindfulness is still a job most robots can’t accomplish, or so I like to think.
But don’t play fool.
In time, robots will take this mindfulness “job” too. I just hope it won’t be too soon.
In the meantime, breathe deep andlet go.
