I spoke to two friends today – a corporate executive and a doctor. Both echoed the same thoughts in response to “How are things with you?”
The fifty plus generation does not have much paid work left to do,
We have hit a glass ceiling.
Experience is an impediment to those who want rookies to just follow instructions., and not use their own brains.
“So, you are saying you cannot shut your mind to reinventions of the wheel around you?”
“How can I, when I’ve executed bigger projects with lesser resources.”
“It is the age of AI-generated plans. Algorithms rule.”
“You are right. I feel so gross, so overweight perched on those unseasoned, feather-lite thought processes. Sometimes the great bones of my life feel so heavy.”
“Your bones crackle too —- keep using brain muscles to prevent decay.” This wisdom came from the doctor.
