No matter where I am, I can’t shake the feeling I should be somewhere else. It’s a never-ending struggle. I know whatever I’m doing is important (otherwise, I wouldn’t have carved out time for it), but I can’t stop my brain from thinking about the important things I’m not doing.
This anxiety has increased over the past few months with the rise of AI. If I don’t use ChatGPT-4’s allotment of 25 messages every three hours, I might fail to secure my family’s financial future. There’s gold in those prompts; generational wealth to be made. If I put in the time and write enough original prompts, I’m sure something good will happen.
The curve requires me to stay ahead. Thanks to CodeAcademy, I’ve started learning the programming language Python. It’s just the moat I need. Once I understand the underlying data, I’ll have a leg up on the competition.
In fact, I’ve spent the last three hours on CodeAcademy. That’s three more hours than most people are willing to spend. Wait, has it been three hours? I forgot to use my ChatGPT-4 prompts!
