Be a Craftsman

A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.
Louis Nizer

Artificial intelligence is going to replace much of the knowledge work that is done today. Many white-collar jobs will simply be replaced by AI.

The question becomes, what is left?

It will be the craftsmen or craftsperson that will have high-paying jobs. It will be the jobs where you need to create a physical skill that takes time to perfect.

For anyone who has ever done taping for drywall knows that this is a skill. Taping is not an activity that anyone can just learn how to do on a weekend.

It will be these skill jobs that are done by craftsmen that will be the high-value jobs of the future.

That is until robot technology advances …
