I always love talking to Brooks with whatever that comes to mind. He never fails to amaze me with his wide insights that i keep getting that aha! moments with him. Just when i think i have things figured out a bit i get new stuff from him and i love it!
With Brooks' expertise and wide knowledge on technology, we discussed about the fast pace of the digital world, from AI's and other stuff being developed to "better" the world, it sometimes scares the Viking out of me!
With the intention of creating machines that we hope to make our lives easier - will it truly do that or will it box ourselves from each other?
Brooks is such a sweet guy and it's always a pleasure talking to him - being called the Viking Goddess earned him quite some points too ;)
Great takeaways from Brooks:
Technology and Transformation are perfect allies
Don't be a slave to technology, use it to better yourself instead
Everything that we do is about intention
We have a choice - always!
You need motivation to transform
Find a way to use boxes as a positive short cuts
When you put others in boxes, you are cutting yourself off - placing yourself into another box
