Go back to the original version. Rewrite it as a dad talking to his son about these ai tools and how learning them now will give him a huge leg up over his peers both in school and as he enter the job or business market. Leave the PS as is.
If you're worried about being replaced by AI, you shouldn't be.
You won't be replaced by AI; you're going to be replaced by the guy or gal next to you who is leveraging AI as a tool to do the same work you do without the constraints of The Iron Triangle (i.e. - better, cheaper, AND faster).
At the moment, AI tools can't do anything on their own. They require the guidance and prompting of humans.
Anytime you ask AI tools to "create," you get garbage back. If you want amazing results, you need to learn how to "feed" these tools great creative ideas, thoughts, feelings, descriptions, and more. Then use the tools to structure, iterate, and complete things.
This requires YOU, the human, to bring your creativity, your ideas, your uniqueness to the table.
AI tools are just that: tools. Nothing more. Tools are things created by and used by humans to make their tasks more leveraged and more efficient.
Every time we create new tools and use them as leverage to accomplish tasks, those tasks automatically take less human effort.
Think about the farmer who needed twenty adult workers in the past to plow his fields, who then gets a tractor, and now his 9-year-old son plows those same fields in less time.
This means that today, you and I don't have to plow fields to eat. We do different work and progress our society together. A better version of this story will be true of these tools because these tools are cheap, easy to learn, and widely available.
So everyone can use them to plow their creative fields and take all that extra time and put it towards their family, their community, their society… the real high-value work of our time.
So stop worrying about being replaced and instead ask yourself how you can use these tools to produce higher quality value for your community in less time and with less effort.
Then do it. And teach your kids to do the same.
Then take that extra time and go play a game with your kids. Go walk your dog. Go learn a new sport.
Go be human.
PS - This image was created by my son with MidJorney and Chat-GPT. We've spent 20+ hours sitting next to each other, watching videos, playing with prompts, learning to create and design characters, and learning how to tell stories with images. This image represents hours of study and new skills that we both now have (and will continue to grow). It's a representation of a vision he had to learn how to craft with these tools. It took time, effort, and skill, and human creativity to get Zachary to an outcome that would have taken him years with traditional art mediums.
This is why people are losing their minds… the compression of time, effort, and costs to get better and higher quality results.
The image is Zachary as a lightning mage in the style of The Dragon Prince.

Hey buddy, I wanted to talk to you about these AI tools that are becoming more and more popular. You see, learning how to use these tools now will give you a big advantage over your friends, both in school and later when you start working or running a business.
First, remember that AI tools can't do things on their own; they need people like you and me to guide them. So, by learning how to use them, you'll be ahead of the game.
Second, when you ask these AI tools to "create," you won't get great results unless you give them awesome ideas, feelings, and descriptions. If you learn how to work with them, you can use the tools to make your work even better.
This means you need to bring your own creativity and unique ideas to the table, which will help you stand out from the crowd.
Third, think of AI tools as helpful gadgets, like a calculator or a computer. They're just tools that can make our tasks easier and more efficient. Just like how a farmer used to need twenty workers to plow his fields, but with a tractor, his 9-year-old son can do it in less time. This makes everyone's life easier and allows us to focus on other important tasks.
By learning how to use these tools, you can save time and energy on your work, and then use that extra time to have fun, learn new things, or even help others.
So, instead of worrying about AI tools taking over, focus on how you can use them to your advantage. By learning to use these tools now, you'll be ahead of your peers in school and later in your career.
And who knows? You might even create something amazing that could change the world!
