Awakening Your Dormant Talents

Do you have a talent that you no longer develop? Do you have some potential that you are no longer using? I wrote about this topic years ago. At that time, I wrote that my dormant talent was coding. I have a background in computer science, but at that time I hadn’t developed an app in years. My wish was to develop my coding talent again. Fast forward to the present, I’m happy to report that I have been developing my coding talent! I’ve developed several apps in the past years, and I still do now. So, my coding talent is no longer dormant. It still has a lot of room for improvement, but I’ve be ..read more

Strategy and Tactics: Two Essential Keys to Success

I recently read Outlive by Peter Attia. It’s a book about longevity that I found insightful. It contains many lessons about different aspects of health. However, what I’d like to share with you here isn’t the health lessons from the book. Instead, it’s a quote by Sun Tzu that I found there: Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat. Interesting quote, isn’t it? Strategy without tactics might lead you to victory, but it’s the slowest route to get there. You will waste a lot of resources along the way. On the other hand, tactics ..read more

The Power of Preparation: The Nvidia Story

For the past few months, I’ve been following the world of AI. The development in the field has been accelerating since the launch of ChatGPT in November last year. Bill Gates wrote back in March that the age of AI has begun. One of the winners of this AI boom is Nvidia. Its chips power most of the AI applications being used today. But what’s most interesting to me is the fact that Nvidia was already prepared long before the AI opportunity came. In a recent earnings call with investors, Jensen Huan – the CEO of Nvidia – said this: It costs a lot of money to do it because you have to do all the ..read more

Introducing Bing Chat Masterclass: ChatGPT on Steroids

For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on a new AI course. Today I’m happy to announce that Bing Chat Masterclass: ChatGPT on Steroids is now available! It’s a course about how to make the most out of Bing Chat, Microsoft’s free AI chatbot. I’m excited about the course because I believe that Bing Chat is better than ChatGPT. Here are a few reasons why: Free access to GPT-4. GPT-4 is the most advanced language model created by OpenAI. If you use ChatGPT, you’d need a ChatGPT Plus subscription ($20 per month) to access GPT-4. But with Bing Chat, you can access GPT-4 for free! That means you ..read more

Introducing Chat Ace: ChatGPT Made Easy

Since it was launched in November last year, ChatGPT is taking the world by storm. Its ability to converse intelligently surprised many, including me. There was a slight problem, though: I didn’t find it very convenient to use. It didn’t (and still doesn’t) have features like search, favorites, and tags. I ended up having to copy and paste the answers I liked one by one to a note-taking app. I wished there was a better way. The opportunity came in early March when OpenAI launched ChatGPT API. It allows developers to develop their own ChatGPT-based apps. I took the opportunity to develop an iPh ..read more

The Coming Threats of Generative AI and What to Do
Life Optimizer
by Donald Latumahina
11M ago
In my last post, I wrote that there is currently an emergence of AI tools that can create new content, called generative AI. These tools can generate emails, poems, images, and more based on your input (known as prompts). This is a recent development because the tools emerged only in 2022. The underlying technologies have been developed for several years, but they seemed to reach a tipping point last year with the launch of tools like DALL-E, Midjourney, and ChatGPT. We are only at the beginning of this new era. When someone at Reddit asked Bill Gates about his views on ChatGPT, his response w ..read more

Here we are near the end of 2022. Soon we will enter the year 2023. I think it’s a good time to reflect on what we have learned this year so that we can start the new year strong.

Why a Passion for Learning Is Essential
Life Optimizer

What do you think is a key trait for thriving in this age? A good answer, I believe, is a passion for learning. Let me explain. I recently read Money: The True Story of a Made-Up Thing by Jacob Goldstein. It’s an insightful book about the history of finance. It covers topics such as the origin of paper money, the stock market, and banks. I learned a lot from the book. One thing stated in the book is that for many centuries, people’s occupations barely changed. They mostly just did what their parents and grandparents did. The way people lived was also similar from generation to generation. But ..read more

Thriving Despite Adversity: A Lesson From Leonhard Euler
Life Optimizer
by Donald Latumahina
1y ago
Leonhard Euler is one of the greatest mathematicians who have ever lived. Living in the 18th century, he contributed to many fields of mathematics. He was very prolific; when he passed away at the age of 76, he had more than 850 publications! Many of the mathematical notations that we use today were first introduced by Euler. But I found something even more interesting when I read his story in Fermat’s Enigma: despite being completely blind in the last seventeen years of his life, those were his most productive years! How could that be? How could he produce more when the situation was worse? A ..read more
