Quick Tip: Start playing with AI, now

And the great thing is, using ChatGPT is simple.

That’s probably why 100+ million people jumped into it so quickly.

Here’s how to get started.

To log into ChatGPT:
Go to

Click on Sign up or Log in at the top.

If you don’t get in right away, the servers are overloaded. Try again in 10  minutes.

Try this prompt: Tell me about yourself.

Then ask it about some person, place, or thing you know something about. Does it come up with anything sensible?

Then ask it to sum up the major trends in the industry you work in.

Then try this one: What advice do you have for someone like me, who is … describe your situation and career goals

Play around. Ask it to drill down. Lengthen. Shorten. Be more creative. Write song lyrics. Make its advice into a proverb. An analogy.

Write a product description in the style of one of your heroes.

I predict you’ll be stunned and amazed.

If you’re like me, you’ll come away from your first session with ChatGPT buzzing with new ideas and inspiration.. ready to charge through the door into a whole new world of possibilities.
