We are all living high-speed daily lives. Our calendar is fully booked with so many activities. The strange part is — we do not use the time we gain through technical inventions or digitalization to relax. Instead, we rather engage with more and more activities.
High productivity and our hunger for more activities lead to time pressure, to which we react with additional acceleration as we act faster, we talk and run faster than before. We leave out pauses or fill outbreaks with new activities. We replace slow actions with fast ones and eat, for example, fast food instead of cooking for ourselves. We do several things at the same time (multitasking). In addition to this high tempo, a lot of people do not do sports. And what is the outcome? For example, in Germany, the number of mental illnesses has risen by 70 percent over the past ten years. Wow! We better start thinking. We must act before it gets too late.
There is a song from 1986 called Everything She Wants by Wham and George Michael sings:
“Somebody tell me, Won’t you tell me
Why I do the things that I do?” 😊
So, the question is, how can we solve this in the future and live a healthier and happier life? Before we answer that, we must ask ourselves another question — what actually makes us happy? Simply ask yourself a question — “What makes me happy?” Yes, our work can be a big part of our happiness if we love our work, but we usually know what else makes us happy. But what about if we are tired, bored, stressed, sad, or maybe even depressed? Then there is a lack of inspiration and we need someone to help us get up and tell us what´s best to do to become happy again. We need ideas and recommendations, something like feel the sun on your face, watch some funny YouTube videos, do something for others and help somebody, listen to your favorite songs, listen to the rainfall, have a tea or coffee, cut the grass, eat some chocolate, do something active outdoors such as bike ride, run, country walk, cook some fresh food, play with your dog or cat, get a massage, take a power nap, do some exercise, etc. The Beatles made a song in the 60´s (a song I guess everybody knows) and it goes like:
“Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round
Help me, get my feet back on the ground
Won’t you please, please help me” 😊
In the future, when there is a lack of inspiration and you need someone to help you, well, you will speak to your AI assistant. It will know what makes you happy because you told it so many times in the past. You will just say “make me happy”, “inspire me”. You can tell your AI assistant “tell me a joke” or “show me fun facts”. Or you could say “play my Happy Song playlist” or “play my favorite movies”. Some people get happy with shopping and others with a donation for people in need. Some people prefer to listen, and others want to speak. Most people get happy by doing things together with others. And what do you do when you got nobody to join you? Right, you also speak to your gigaaa AI assistant and use the GIG Service. You just say:
“create a GIG for activity, place and time” or you say, “I would like to join a GIG for activity, place and time”. You can read more about our GIG Service in my last month’s blogs.
And the beauty of this service is that matches happen in real-time. In case there is no match available, your AI assistant creates matches within minutes by proactively approaching your friends. If you prefer the other way around, you instruct your AI assistant to make easy for people to find you, if you are open for ideas and suggestions for activities initiated by your friends.
Happy life comes with so many different things. We get happy when we fix problems and we all have many problems to take care of. For example, if we have a problem with our bank, insurance, mobile network or energy service provider and need assistance to solve it. Today we call a hotline and wait like ages to get someone on the line to answer our questions. Most of the times we get mad about hotline services. Very bad assistance causes frustration, and it´s more or less always a big waste of precious time.
AI virtual assistants will make this part of life easier, too. Customer Service or Customer Support managed by AI assistants will lift the service quality to a level we have never seen before. Here a couple of benefits you will get as a customer:
The machine is always online and ready to answer your questions with 24-hour availability. It´s programmed to answer in real-time. Instant answers for any kind of question. Everyone always gets reliable information, which means consistent answers. Misleading or false advices will be impossible. Recorded answers and safe track record, because it remembers the conversation. In case something goes wrong, you can always track your earlier conversations. As soon the problem is identified, it knows what to do and executes immediately with instant transactions. Humans sometimes lose their patience, but machines have endless patience and it is ready to wait for your feedback as much as needed. Machines perform multitasking, so if needed it can initiate hundreds of new actions and transactions to solve your problem in a fraction of time.
Not only customers will enjoy greater satisfaction speaking to an AI assistant. Companies will also benefit in many ways offering AI assistants to their customers. In the first place, it improves customer satisfaction. All the benefits above will result in increased customer satisfaction which can lead to increased customer advocacy and sales. For growing the customer service department companies don´t need to hire and teach new employees. AI assistant solutions have an unlimited scalability with minimal additional expenses. It´s easy to roll out more services handling more and more complex queries. Increased customer interaction and sales, reaching new customers, gaining a deeper understanding of customers, will help companies grow their business and improve its products and services, so after another problem is successfully solved, customers and companies will feel like James Brown singing:
“I feel good, I knew that I would, now
I feel good, I knew that I would, now
So good, so good, I got you” 😊
