It’s not that people can’t write… they simply can’t think.

I used to travel to compete in math contests back in the 80’s. That was the same time fancy calculators like the HP-12C came out. And people told me that my math skills were now obsolete.

But math is more about problem solving than trying to become a human abacus.

Complex reasoning and creativity meant more than being able to multiply large numbers. And so the same is true in writing, as we now have the equivalent of super smart calculators that still cannot think for you.

The ability to think strategically, solve problems, and form meaningful relationships will only become more valuable in a playground full of idiot toddlers fixated on louder, more obnoxious toys. Give them ChatGPT, Grammarly, and the latest AI tools – doesn’t matter.

Critical thinking skills is what’s missing in today’s breed of digital entrepreneurs. A tool is not a substitute for knowing how to build authentic relationships – any more than being a good “copywriter” makes you a good long-term business partner.

The former is trying to become a pickup artist while the latter is building meaningful connections.

I predict that the deluge of auto-content generating tools, as impressive as they are, only add more turds to the punch bowl because a tool using a tool is still a tool. In 1904 EF Hutton popularized the slogan “When EF Hutton talks, people listen.” Because he has authority and trust– not because his videos were edited “Alex Hormozi” style.

It’s the one between your two ears.
