Many of your have already been exposed to AI-related knowledge and skill development topics. This message diverges from the common topics.

Instead, this message is about the obsession with AI and data, and how they can kill leadership. Both are dreams of neophytes, people who see technology and process as the end goal, and solution to humanity’s problems... technocrats. However, we are an adaptive species, and we create our own problems when we don’t have any. So what, pray tell, is the solution? 

The solution is to reclaim the right to err, to intuit, to make mistakes, to fail, and to learn, with data. No matter the technological change, eventually it becomes the standard, and is abstracted away. You will remain. So, relearn to make decisions and take risks now, because the lessons will stay with you forever, and it will make all those that follow in the future more robust and successful.

How do you do this? Challenge! Of course, what else? Face the decisions you fear, be agile about them. Truly agile, not Agile™. Make decisions that keep your future open... pay the price of your actions early on to free yourself... allow mistakes, and learn from them. 

Here is a simple trick to learn: Take any decision that you are hesitating to make, big or small, and flip a coin. Go with whatever the coin says, and stick to it long enough to meet, greet, and overcome the consequences. Every obstacle you overcome will make you better and happier. 

I look forward to making hard decisions with you.
