Part Five – Storytelling the Book of Proverbs

Ore, I’ve been following your recent posts and the thing dey make sense. But can you do one (using your source document i.e. Proverbs) along the line of skills that will be relevant during the full emergence of A.I and/ or post COVID 19.
Me response:
A simple Google search states that future work skills include:
1.Complex problem solving.
2. Critical thinking.
3. Creativity.
4. Cognitive flexibility.
5. Social skills.
So let’s take complex problem solving as our case study.
But first let me stay by stating two assumptions:
1. Experiences differ, but principles are universal. However, to every rule there is an exception.
2. People sometimes categorise problems into two: Common and Complex. But I believe a common problem will be complex as long as there is a dearth of knowledge to solve it. And a complex problem is as complex as the level of your ignorance.
Are we are clear on the assumptions?
Then let’s proceed.
In problem solving there is a process flow.
We can call the process flow the 3Rs.
These are:
Remedy for the problem.
Let’s take them one by one as follows:
What are the Reasons for the problem?
A. You hate instruction
B. Your heart despised correction
C. You did not listen to mentors
D. Or take your teachers seriously.
What are the Results?
Death (worse case scenario)
What is the Remedy to the problem?
Pay close attention to Wisdom ( he who walks with the wise will be wise. The wise can be found physically or via their products).
Listen closely to insights (Basically, learn from other people’s experience. First does not always mean best).
Acquire a taste for good sense (in other words, bless/ freshen up the flowing fountain of your “mind”).
In situations, where it it a skill related / specialized problem, we can further break it down as follows:
Rejoice with the wife of your youth…let her breasts satisfy you at all times (in another context, don’t ever quit taking delight in her body).
Never take her love for granted.
Let’s rewrite the above:
Take delight in the skills you acquired in your youth.
Never quit being passionate about it, so dig deeper and acquire depth by following up with innovation in that sector/ industry.
Never take the knowledge you have for granted, because so many people don’t have it, yet they need it. You can sell the knowledge

I hope the above makes sense to you and will be of help also.
