What is the root cause of artificial intelligence playing a larger and larger role in society?
Laziness and lack of self-pride in the fruits of our labor.
What quality is lacking in someone who is lazy?
There are more than one reason that could be at play to produce laziness:
- Lack of motivation comes from not seeing that even the smallest action has large consequences. Even the smallest grain of sand in the mechanism of a watch can prevent it from functioning. The motivation to act comes from knowing the infinite worth of the details.
- To cultivate a hardworking self-motivated attitude, requires an inner commitment to exercise self- discipline and willpower. Willpower is like any muscle in the body: it atrophies when unused. Be ready to act on your own behalf at any given moment — you're creating a strong and robust function of the will. Don't send others to fetch and find things you are able to get for yourself.
- Ask yourself intermittently, what you are doing to leave the world (or your home, family or workplace) a better place, to learn something you didn't know before; to lighten the burden of physicality for another.
Work for the joy of giving back to life; for the joy of changing duty to poetry and beauty.
