The topic of how work may change in the future has interested me recently. I work in state government. Your admonition to work on our technical and soft skills is excellent. And yet I've seen how it is possible to not be a 10x engineer doesn't hurt anyone in IT, in state government. There is little to no acceptance of newer technologies or methodologies. And since government has no competition, we cannot lose to anyone. At least where I work all AI related technologies are blocked from use, so no one can gain prompt engineering skills. Well, at least not on the job.
I've thought that perhaps one unspoken reason this situation might exist is because we require a certain number of state employees working to help pay the pensions of retired state employees. If AI could eliminate half of all state employees, then that will have a serious impact upon paying those retired pensioners. (I could be very wrong about this, because I don't know all that goes into paying our pensions.)
