One of my favorite past-time hobbies is said to the entire notion of “Building a Second Brain”. If you’re very new to this or need to be taught extra, this e-book is the place you need to begin:
Building a Second Brain
The complete concept is that your mind is used for its key functionality: considering. All the capturing, storing and organisation techniques needs to be digital. As a end result, you can begin utilizing machines to co-think with you.
It began off as a cute concept that I believed can be cool to turning into the factor that I begin putting better significance on as time goes on. Why? Well if we step again and try directionally the place the longer term goes, there are some clear developments:
If it isn’t digital, it doesn’t exist
AI will be capable to course of bigger and extra contextual knowledge units (so long as they’re captured)
Once you already know your intent, a better plethora of instruments will likely be obtainable to scale velocity of operations (given you will have good fashions)
Therefore it’s necessary that you just be taught to stark co-thinking together with your digital instruments. You must be taught to deal with your digital mind with the identical degree of respect and care that you just do to your actual mind.
There’s only one downside, no two brains are the identical and the best way everybody thinks is totally different. Therefore you might want to make investments the time and vitality to construct your second mind in a means that works for you personally.
For instance, I exploit no fewer than 3 instruments concurrently to enhance my thought course of in a means that ensures:
I at all times know what I must do
I’ve techniques to know what I must do subsequent
I can entry and go deeper on issues which have resonated with me previously
Systems in place that minimise any non-valuable grunt work that creates friction within the thought course of pipeline (from inception to prod)
That final level may be rather a lot to unpack but when ya’ll discover it attention-grabbing sufficient I’m very happy to increase on it!
I’m nonetheless fairly primitive in how I exploit my tooling to enhance my human self however my concept is that with sufficient passing time you must be capable to create AI fashions of your digital self that may then act as a second model of you to bounce concepts off, work, play and construct.
If you assume that is too far off sooner or later, you’re mistaken mortal. It’s already taking place:
