Using AI artist Vicenza creates movie posters in the most fascinating and disconcerting way imaginable. Following inputs of prompts and descriptions about the movies’ visuals, titles and premises, the AI software generates the artwork. The project named ROBOMOJO Vincenzi opens the conversation about the new technology and how artificial intelligence will impact the humane and handmade nature of art itself.

Expertise vs Attitude

I absolutely agree with Seth Godin when he says:

Hire for attitude and train for expertise.

The actual differentiator in just about every job is attitude. From plumbers to carpenters to radiologists to pharmacists, someone with extraordinary soft skills (honesty, commitment, compassion, resilience, enrollment in the journey, empathy, willingness to be coached… the real skills that we actually care about) is going to outperform.

“There’s this idea around people removing anything from their life doesn’t serve them. It’s like, ‘Oh, that doesn’t serve me, I’m removing that from my life.’ What’s underlying this…is the idea that we should only keep things in our life that serve us, e.g. ‘Everyone in the world is here to serve me and everything in the world is here for my sole perpetual pleasure.’ The reason I think that’s problematic is because if you’re going to throw away a person or a relationship at the very first sign of challenge, or dissatisfaction, or conflict, then you’re going to rob yourself of a lot of opportunities for growth, and for healing, and for forgiveness.”
