Using OpenAI’s ChatGPT in your personal life is a good way to learn how you can use GPT in your professional life. 

How so?

Following Jill’s death, I have found I like memoirs by authors who have lost a loved one, ideally a spouse. 

I particularly enjoyed reading Left on Tenth : A Second Chance on Life by Delia Ephron and The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Dideon. 

Last night something made me think of asking GPT, as someone who has lost a spouse, what other memoirs I might enjoy. 

I was provided a list of ten, after I prompted it for five more, after reviewing the fist five. 

The list received, with reasons why I may like each memoir, was pretty good. A few I had already read. 

I may ask it which memoirs address the loss of a loved one to cancer.

Struck me as a wow, that was something I’d never done before. Turning to AI for suggested books. Made me realize the impact this AI was going to have on my life.

Sitting in a coffee shop, now, I was curious what music GPT may suggest I listen to.

I asked GPT for artists similar to Joan Armatrading. I have liked her for years. GPT gave me a pretty nice list, again with descriptions for why I may like each artist. 

I am listening to Sade, an artist who I had not heard before. She’s pretty good.

I am learning that GPT represents a new way of doing things. A new way to be exposed to things in which I have an interest. A new way to learn something. A new way of gathering info I may have never gathered – quickly. 

It’s possible I’d have turned to Google, Amazon or Apple Music to gather such info. In some cases like this, I would have gone with no info or asking others. 

Learning how ChatGPT can be an effective tool in our professional lives – lawyer, blogger, or whatever – is going to take some.

A good way to learn how is to use ChatGPT in your personal life. You’re then likely to become more imaginative in how you may use GPT in your professional life.
