Hey!

Today we’ll take a deep dive into one topic » productivity.

I use AI for everything and thought maybe AI can help me also plan my day. I know it can be great coach so why not also a productivity coach.

So if you struggle to organize your day and need bit of help with productivity, this is for you.

You can “hire” AI to be your always available productivity coach.

This is particularly for those that feel they are busy all the time but business does not seem to move forward aka the “needle” does not really move despite working all the time.

Keep on reading, I’ll show you an awesome prompt to tackle this.

Here’s what you’ll learn today:

  • How to get AI to help you plan your day

  • Midjourney still struggles with some human features

💪 Get MORE done in LESS time

This is great hack on how to use AI as your best productivity coach. This works both in Google Bard and ChatGPT.

Let’s just dive in so you see how you can DIY this.

Here’s the prompt I used:

Act as a productivity coach and organise my day.

Work hours available: 4 hours
Work schedule: 8-12

Today's to-do's:
Marketing of AI Driven newsletter - moves the needle
Create ChatGPT workshop for solopreneurs - moves the needle
Create new book on Amazon on AI & solopreneurs - kinda moves the needle

Draft a plan with actionable steps and with breaks. Prioritise the tasks for me.

Edit the prompt with your tasks and work hours.

Here’s what ChatGPT suggested (I used ChatGPT 4 for this, works equally well on 3.5):

Given your available work hours and tasks, I've drafted the following schedule prioritising the tasks that "move the needle" more significantly.

8:00 AM - 8:15 AM: Set up & Plan Start your day with a quick overview of the tasks and gather necessary resources.

8:15 AM - 9:15 AM: Marketing of AI Driven newsletter Spend the first hour developing marketing strategies and content for the AI Driven newsletter. This could involve drafting social media posts, creating a marketing plan, reaching out to partners for collaboration, etc.

9:15 AM - 9:30 AM: Break Take a 15-minute break. Step away from the computer, stretch, hydrate, and relax.

9:30 AM - 11:00 AM: Create ChatGPT workshop for solopreneurs Dedicate the next 1.5 hours to create the ChatGPT workshop. This could involve outlining the workshop content, creating slides or scripts, researching and compiling resources for solopreneurs, etc.

11:00 AM - 11:15 AM: Break Take another 15-minute break.

11:15 AM - 12:00 PM: Create new book on Amazon on AI & solopreneurs Spend the remaining 45 minutes of your workday drafting content for your new book. This could be outlining chapters, writing sections, or doing necessary research.

This plan tries to strike a balance between your key tasks and gives you a little breathing space in between. Remember to stay flexible and adjust as needed based on how your day unfolds.

I really like that the day starts with a short planning session, and then straight into work mode. Also gave advice on what to do during breaks - nice!

Here’s Google Bard’s suggestions:

Sure, here is a plan for your day:

8:00 AM

  • Start by checking your email and responding to any urgent messages.

  • Next, take a break to stretch and get some water.

  • Then, prioritize your tasks for the day. The most important task is to market your AI Driven newsletter. You can do this by sending out a newsletter blast to your subscribers, promoting it on social media, and reaching out to relevant publications.

9:00 AM

  • Once you have finished marketing your newsletter, start working on your ChatGPT workshop for solopreneurs. This is a slightly less important task, but it is still important to get it done. You can create a workshop outline, gather resources, and start putting together a presentation.

10:00 AM

  • Take a break to eat lunch and clear your head.

11:00 AM

  • Once you have finished lunch, start working on your book on AI & solopreneurs. This is the least important task of the day, but it is still important to make some progress. You can brainstorm ideas, do some research, and start writing a chapter outline.

12:00 PM

  • Take a break to finish up any loose ends and wrap up your day.

This is just a suggested plan, and you may need to adjust it based on your own priorities and needs. However, it should give you a good starting point for organizing your day and getting things done.

Here are some additional tips for staying on track:

  • Set realistic goals for yourself. Don't try to do too much in one day, or you'll just end up feeling overwhelmed and stressed.

  • Break down large tasks into smaller, more manageable ones. This will make them seem less daunting and help you to stay focused.

  • Take breaks throughout the day to avoid burnout. Get up and move around, or step outside for some fresh air.

  • Reward yourself for your accomplishments. This will help you to stay motivated and on track.

Bard did pretty good work here mapping out work and breaks. Personally I’d not check email first thing in the morning for an hour or have lunch at 10, but other than plan is ok.

So pretty solid advice from both “coaches”.

Which one would you hire as your productivity coach?

😂 Just for fun

Midjourney is known not to get hands correct on images it creates… here’s proof it still have not got it right.

I asked an image of woman journaling with pencil… here’s the results ⤵ 😂

Have you got some funny images from Midjourney?

    EU is working on AI regulation which is great but also can be a challenge for businesses like OpenAI. Sam Altman tweeted on Friday that OpenAI has no plans of leaving the region. This is bit like GDPR was few years ago. Bit of a headache from business point of view but good news for the consumers.
