ChatGPT is the most powerful technology we’ve ever seen.
But, most of us don’t have a clue how to use it to its maximum potential.
Here’s a simple framework to turn ChatGPT into your Personal Assistant:
• AI as a Tool
I want show you how I use ChatGPT and other AI tools as my own personal:
Like anything in life, ChatGPT is a garbage in – garbage out system.
I’m going to show you a thread we wrote that went viral this week and how👇
• Your Role
The key with any of these roles on your team, whether they’re in real life or artificial intelligence, is you need to:
1. Give clear direction
2. Review work product
3. Refine directions further
4. Rinse and repeat this process
• It’s not Prompts
Prompts aren’t the answer.
The Twitter Threads offering 500 prompts won’t help.
What you need to learn is the process of using AI iteratively as your personal intern.
Let me walk you through an example of how you can use AI for each of these steps.
• The Idea
Sometimes, coming up with ideas is challenging.
Using AI will help you not have to begin from a blank page, which is half the battle.
Here’s an example Prompt:
• I want to write a thread about growing your earnings
• Give me 5 topics not commonly discussed
• The Results
Here’s what ChatGPT gave me:
I can work with these, but…
• My Idea Process
here’s how I come up with my ideas:
1. Go for a 90 minute walk with my dog
2. On the first ½ of the walk listen to a Podcast
3. On the second ½ of the walk, proceed in silence
Every single time, I come up with 4 – 5 ideas I want to write about.
• The Research
I asked ChatGPT a simple question and expected I’d get good results:
What do people consider the top ten motivational speeches we can watch on Youtube
Because ChatGPT uses search results, I’m asking it to read all the Top Ten lists to save me from doing it.
• The Refinement
There’s a problem with most Top 10 lists.
They tend to be male-centric and also may often lack diversity, which I want to avoid as a creator.
The original list that was sent to me matched that so I refined it this way:
Give me 3 more that are from women
• Refine the Data
Here’s what ChatGPT gave me for each video.
It’s good, but I can’t use it, so I queried it further and got the second image.
What are the Top 3 takeaways from Les Brown’s Video “You Gotta Be Hungry”
• Refine the Format
I couldn’t use that as a Tweet, so I asked it:
Give me the top 3 takeaways for each video.
I’d like you to format it as:
Speaker, Speech and then 3 bullet points of the takeaways…
The results were much better and almost usable.
• Continue to Refine
If you’ve had interns or colleagues at the start of their career, you understand:
1. Be patient
2. Continue to refine
3. Don’t publish too early
I asked it to put the bullets in ascending order and to have a maximum of 5 words, here’s what I got:
• Almost There
That’s getting close, but, you need to look at the details:
1. It took out key insights
2. It doesn’t have a link to videos
I asked it to fix that and here’s what my friend, ChatGPT gave me:
• The Last Step
This is good, almost no more formatting needed.
Your job isn’t done yet. There’s more to do.
ALWAYS check the links of people on your team, including AI.
5 of the 13 YouTube links didn’t work.
Here’s the finished product:
