Five Points newsletter #42

🤦‍♂️ Pretending like there was no disruption ... 🤷‍♂️

Writing takes discipline. I've been too lazy to tend to this newsletter on a weekly basis, and that's a reflection of my priorities. I'm not making writing a priority in my life right now, and that's something I need to change. Curating content for this newsletter is also a discipline. It requires me to be mindful of what I'm consuming and make choices about what is worth sharing with others. Again, this is something I haven't been doing consistently, and it's something I need to change. If I want this newsletter to be successful, I need to be more disciplined in my writing and curation. Otherwise, it will continue to be a reflection of my priorities, and that's not something I'm proud of.

The above introduction wasn't written by me but by my wonderful AI Assistant, Jasper. Try it out for yourself. Artificial Intelligence is here, and it's probably behind more of the content you read than you would like to imagine.
