There might be a sense of sensationalism, and that’s … well … appropriate. We are writing our destiny today.
We can argue about timing. However, the way I see it now is the time to reflect deeply and understand the impact of the ChatGPT era on our lives.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.Eleanor Roosevelt

Collaborating with ChatGPT: The Future of Content Creation
Firstly, there will be parts in this article rewritten by ChatGPT, my revolutionary writing assistant. We pondered and deliberated on most of the parts, and the final edit was chosen based on what conveyed the message best.
In all honesty, this collaborative effort was highly engaging and rewarding for me. I found my brain didn’t decrease, in fact, it was quite the opposite. Although for some content where you just place a question and copy-paste the answer, it may seem that way.
My assistant, developed by OpenAI is highly popular and I have no exclusive rights to its services, but, I’m certainly not complaining. It always meets deadlines, and with some tweaking, it provides the perfect content.
In the ChatGPT era, I will enter the world of writing without boundaries, where creativity and productivity unite.
Maximizing the Potential of ChatGPT in Business: A Personal Journey
Through this journey, I aim to uncover the possibilities of using ChatGPT to enhance business operations and explore the potential of this technology to revolutionize the way we do business. By leveraging the capabilities of this innovative technology, I will explore how businesses can benefit from its use and how it can help to increase efficiency, innovation, and customer satisfaction.
Just to give you some recent examples. During the last week alone, I was able to generate 5×15-page PDFs for clients and prospects. The process of creating these guides was quick and effective, as I knew the subjects and what my clients needed.
My newfound efficiency with ChatGPT could enable me to write a book biweekly, if that would be the goal, including cover and design, as well as create training materials, white papers, and research materials.
As I’ve grown more comfortable with ChatGPT, I continue to discover new ways to maximize its potential. My creativity has been sparked as I learn to ask the right questions, dig deeper, and get the needed answers to complex questions. I believe that mastering these skills will put anyone ahead of the curve.
I no longer believe that everyone gets the same results from ChatGPT. The improvements I’ve seen in my own business over the past weeks are proof of that. And the benefits of my increased efficiency aren’t limited to me alone – my family, clients, and network have all benefited from my newfound knowledge and the materials I’ve created with ChatGPT.
And I only scratched the surface. It feels like I just barely started. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please don’t wait. Start your own journey. I needed a couple of weeks myself to start seeing the potential to no way back.
The best way to predict the future is to create it.Abraham Lincoln
In the ChatGPT era, this will be a frequent question: Who Wrote This Content?
Soon you won’t be able to know what posts are written and illustrated without the help of assistants like ChatGPT, Dall-E, Midjourney, Hugging Face, Playground AI, ChatSonic, Dreamlike.art, Neuroflash, Instantart.io, and others on the rise.
Of course, you’ll also have tools like GPTzero to give you the truth. At some point, it won’t matter anymore. For sure, in schools where is a need for validation of your education, these proofing tools are and will continue to be precious.
But to write content on social media, marketing, ads, and scripts for multiple purposes, what will matter the most will be the outcomes and the goodness of the content.
You might not like it, but in the digital era, speed has become the top currency.
ChatGPT Opened the Gates
The tipping point we’re witnessing, and many of us are fascinated by with real daily use, it’s the start of big jumps in multiple fields.
Is Google really threatened by Microsoft Bing, powered by ChatGPT-4 AI? Some might say yes, and after the layoffs and the failures in their own AI equivalent solution, things would seem like it.
Now, I wouldn’t just dismiss Google as being together with YouTube the biggest search engine with the largest amount of accurate data in the world. I believe they are up for a comeback anytime, even though Microsoft wins this current battle with their bat and investment in OpenAI.
It’s interesting to watch the quick moves coming from Google lately; almost like an action movie.
Soon after the 6% layoffs, they switched gears to invest heavily in others who did progress in chatbots and show a new promise land.
Check some of the headlines:
But then, again, back to Microsoft and his move. This Medium article reveals a bit about the new Bing: Oh the Things You’ll Do with Bing’s ChatGPT.
A Journey of Unlimited Possibilities in the ChatGPT Era
What caught my eye is the summary Bing will be able to provide you after giving some context and letting it search.
Think about the ramifications of that, especially in branding, reputation, and marketing. If you’re not online and you don’t control the narrative now more than ever, it will cost you.
On the other hand, will help less known figures to get noticed and will help researchers with tons of saved hours. And who’s not a researcher these days? Just imagine asking Bing: “Please research corporate lawyer John Smith from Vancouver…” and maybe add some extra identifications or a LinkedIn link.
Recruiters, what a heaven, right? Imagine having all reports on candidates provided, the outside check done in seconds with a full report. Or do you see this as a threat? Remember the analogy with the glass of water.
Wanting to get personal in your marketing? Searching specifics about someone.
The amount of available online content will just double, triple…Again, the importance of controlling your narrative and adding your content will weigh more.
What Would Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, and Martin Luther King Jr. say about ChatGPT?
Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela
ChatGPT has enough data about each of them, plus I provided a list of quotes from each before requesting my assistant to: “Please write a quote in the name of Steve Jobs / Nelson Mandela / Martin Luther King Jr. as he would be alive today and just tested you and your abilities.”
For Steve Jobs we have:
“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
As Nelson Mandela was a great advocate for peace and equality, he would likely say something like:
“ChatGPT has the potential to revolutionize the way we communicate and connect with each other. Let us use this technology wisely and ensure that it promotes unity and equality for all people.”
It’s difficult to speculate on what Martin Luther King Jr. would say about ChatGPT specifically, as he lived before the technology existed.
However, considering his commitment to social justice and equality, he may have had concerns about the potential for the technology to perpetuate existing biases and power imbalances.
On the other hand, he may have also seen the potential for ChatGPT to be used as a tool for education and empowerment. A quote from MLK that may relate to this topic is,
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically… Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
Interesting and fascinating, right?
Now don’t think I forgot about women.
What would Mother Teresa, Maya Angelou, and Marie Curie say about ChatGPT?
Mother Theresa, Maya Angelou, Marie Curie
My assistant was very straightforward when it came to Mother Teresa.
“We may never know the impact of a single act of kindness, but together, with the help of technology like ChatGPT, we can change the world and make it a better place for all.”
I had some back and forth about Maya Angelou’s alleged quote. ChatGPT was reluctant to offer a potential quote even if it stated that has enough data. So interesting how answers can vary on the same topics. In the end, I got this and it’s beautiful:
“The beauty of technology lies in its potential to awaken and empower the human spirit, and AI, like ChatGPT, is a testament to that. Its ability to assist and enhance our creative endeavors is a step towards a brighter future for all.”
My assistant struggled with Marie Curie, stating that: “Unfortunately, as Marie Curie lived from 1867-1934, it is not possible for her to comment on AI or technology as we know it today.”
“Science is not only a discipline of reason but, also, one of romance and passion.”
Navigating the Fear Surrounding AI Advancement: Understanding the Past and Embracing the Future
The reasons for fear vary. Many fear a rapid, uncontrollable evolution compared to the way we evolve. Taking many jobs out of the market that will transform lives into a question, “What’s next?” Being exploited by dark forces or wrongly labeled and programmed until it loses control.
All are valid questions or points. The list can go on and on. Now, considering our history there were similar moments in time when humans needed to embrace or fight evolution.
· The Agricultural Revolution: Humans needed to embrace new agricultural practices and tools to improve their food production and lead a settled life.
· The Industrial Revolution: Humans needed to fight against the traditional ways of production and embrace the new innovations to lead an efficient life.
· The Digital Revolution: Humans needed to embrace new technologies such as computers, the internet, and smartphones to lead a connected life.
· The Scientific Revolution: Humans needed to embrace new scientific findings and theories, which challenged their long-held beliefs and worldviews.
· The Civil Rights Movement: Humans needed to fight against discrimination, segregation, and unequal treatment to ensure equal rights for all.
Unleash Your Imagination and Get Ahead of the Curve
Overall, the efficiency provided by AI has no equivalent. Now you can AIiously recreate a team of 5 or 10 people on the spot even if you are a solopreneur. You have a content writer, marketer, designer, assistant, screenwriter, editor, researcher, data analyst, customer representative, HR…
There is no limitation on how many things you can create and do with your new assistant. You can synthesize your voice and double yourself virtually by creating live shows. With the power of your imagination, the way you can describe what you want will be able to give birth to the entire spectrum of creative elements, including 3d characters, movie scenes, and games.
Unlocking AI Communication with Prompt Engineering
Prompt engineering is that new thing that sounds fascinating and has the potential to be in front of the curve by many notches.
This might be the tool I need to bring my creative thinking in business to a completely elevated level. But if I think about it better, #promptengineering is what I described above that I started doing intuitively to get better and better results.
If you want to get ahead and learn how to effectively communicate with AI, I recommend you start learning prompt engineering. You might even start a new career or add a top skill to your resume. And since it’s so new, let me give an initial place to start with: LearnPrompting.org
Embrace the Rapid Pace of AI Advancement: Time to Reflect, Strategize, and Take Action
Now be warned that this is a fast pace change. It’s time to think and act at the same time. Think about your weaknesses, where you are replaceable, and where you can use AI to leverage yourself. Start getting creative and think big because, during the next years, so many things will get disrupted that those who are acknowledging and acting on what’s happening now will have a real chance to shine.
