My kids keep asking me every day: are you working on your book yet Daddy? did you finish your first chapter yet?
They amaze me with their curiosity about my writing project “We Are Human“.
It is my first non-fiction book. In case you just know me, I wrote and published a few books. But they are all fictions. I never write a non-fiction book before.
Before I start the first chapter, I think it is good if I explain why I write this book in the first place.
Why I am interested so much in writing “We Are Human”?
I want to remind people that we are human, not superheroes or neither robots.
We used to have time to sit and listen to the rain. We used to have time for not doing anything. We used to have time to look into the eyes of the person we love. We used to have time to call friends for a few drinks.
Nowadays, it seems like everybody is busy. We are running out of time.
With the enormous possibilities in our hands, we want to accomplish too many things. We burn out ourselves for nothing.
It is good to have a chance to live in this smartphone era and witness the revolution of the technology. But if you don’t have a good adaption and don’t know how to limit things to come into your life, you will never have time to enjoy things around you.
It’s important to live a meaningful life, instead of living a life that we are getting tired of.
We need to sit back and understand about ourselves, our nature. Where we are coming from. What could make us living a happy life?
Happiness often comes from simple things in life.
I want my book to be the first self-help resource for those who are frustrated in managing their time, for those who have difficulty in balancing their life, and for those who lose their purpose of life.
We are human. We can learn. We can adapt. We can turn things from wrong to right. We can always make things better. In the past, we learned how to create fire. We learned how to survive. We learned how to love.
This time I am sure we also can learn and adapt ourselves to the new technology.
We are not going to fight against the revolution of the technology. Instead, we should be able to take the benefits out of the new technology.
Understand ourselves, understand our mind would help us to stay calm, enjoy everyday life and after all we should be able to live a happy life.
That’s the main objective of my book. I want everyone to live a happy life.
We will go through each chapter, an obstacle, a challenge, how to get rid of things and self-doubt and after all, what we need to understand how technology will revolve in the future.
The singularity will happen but I believe it is for good. For those who don’t know the meaning of singularity, I can explain in a simple way. Singularity refers to the future moment when the machine can surpass human intelligence.
It means the machine will be able to work faster than human, think or decide better than human. That’s the AI (artificial intelligent).
To me, AI exists because human creates them. There’s no doubt they will serve the human’s purpose. They will become human assistants, not the enemy.
You should stop watching those scary scient fictions. Instead, you should learn how to adapt yourself and make the benefits from this exciting journey where technology weaves into our daily life.
They are here to help us live a happy life.
That’s all I can say about the book right now. Things might change but these are the original ideas for writing “We Are Human”.
