Technology is always evolving and the latest groundbreaking technology advancement has been the development of AI. Recently Microsoft made chatgpt available for public use. Chatgpt can already complete several of your working responsibilities with relative easy in its early stages. The two main advantages with using AI instead of human labour is the lowered costs and how efficient the AI is.
The question that is on everyone’s mind is: How can I prevent this from happening to me?

Since the beginning of human time our survival depended on our ability to adapt to sudden changes in our environment. If it became colder outside we had to learn how to start a fire and how to sleep comfortably in caves. When it became warmer outside we had to sleep next to the water to be able to cure our thirst and eat fish.
The same principle applies to your job! One thing that AI can never replace is human intelligence, because we created the code that makes AI function correctly. In order to keep your job or to keep getting promoted you must figure out what the limitations of AI are and how you can exploit them. Coachmen had to become taxi drivers when the car came. So why can’t you become an AI resistant worker?
One of the best quotes I have ever hear is “You can fail at what you don’t like so why not do what you like?” This just rings so true to me, because how many people genuinely love their job? In my opinion most people just work to pickup their paycheck at the end of the month. Or they work in order to survive and provide for their family.
Therefore I recommend that you continue to work your 9 to 5 job and create a business on the side. Before launching your business know that failure is good and it teaches you the best lessons you will learn in life. Do not shy away from failure it is part of life.
After this find something that is in demand right now or solve a need. The car was according to carsguide.com.au article called Who invented the first car and when was it made? Carl Bentz created the first car. Most likely Carl Bentz realized that traveling with horse and carriage was taking too long. At the same time the horse or horses needed to rest and be fed. Therefore Carl decided to create the automobile to eliminate these problems. As a result he became financially free!
Another way to make yourself indispensable to your employer is to become the best at using AI out of all the employees. Trust me that can keep you in a job for a long time.
One of my teachers at school told a story about how one of his colleagues immersed himself into Microsoft excel when it first came out. He wasn’t necessarily the most hard working employee, but everyone at the company started asking him to help them with excel. This resulted in the other employees not learning the key functions in excel, because they relied on the guy that knew the most about excel. In the end the company couldn’t afford to let him go, because then they would have to pay for all the other employees to go a course about excel.
Instead of being scared about AI taking your job away you should embrace the emergence of AI and become the best at using it.
In conclusion, the rise of AI does present a potential threat to job security, but it also opens up new opportunities for those who are willing to adapt and embrace change. Instead of fearing the loss of our jobs, we should focus on how we can leverage AI to our advantage. By understanding the limitations of AI and finding ways to exploit them, we can position ourselves as AI-resistant workers.
Additionally, considering starting a side business that aligns with your passions and addresses current needs can provide financial freedom and job security. Finally, by developing valuable AI skills and becoming proficient in using AI tools, we can make ourselves indispensable to our employers. Rather than allowing AI to steal our jobs, we should take the initiative to stay ahead of the curve and become the best at utilizing this technology. With the right mindset and proactive approach, we can navigate the changing job landscape and thrive in the era of AI.
