Talent and technology enhance each other, but they can’t replace each other. Skill and hard work can improve technology and technology, in turn, can empower our skills and diligence so that we can make better and better stuff, more by the day.
The temptation is to rely on technology to replace our skill. Good stories don’t result from algorithms or automated production processes. Machines can’t invent wit or charm—only well-timed playbacks of real human wit at best.
Don’t let tech become your crutch. Put away your GPS and learn the lay of your land. That’s how trend-setters get found.
