Using ChatGPT to improve your work rather than just your work product

As a grand mentor rather than a mere assist

Shai has created a ChatGPT cheatsheet for UX/UI folks.

This may not immediately sounds applicable to you because

  1. A new article, video, cheatsheet, or prompt engineering course is published every second of every day, and/or,
  2. You aren’t a UX/UI person.

Don’t let that slow you down. While the examples are from UX/UI, most of the techniques are readily applicable to almost any domain, and they are good concrete examples of how ChatGPT can help you be better at what you do.

Typically, I see ChatGPT used as a way to do a part of your work, whether generating drafts at the beginning, cleaning your writing at the end, or reducing your work by summarizing what you’d need to read.

These suggestions are different. They are having ChatGPT create a high-level plan that follows best practices and doesn’t let you forget steps. They are having ChatGPT make design suggestions.

His suggestions remind me more of when one of the composite systems (AutoGPT, AgentGPT, ChaosGPT, etc.) uses one copy of ChatGPT to form a plan and then spawns separate copies of ChatGPT to do the work.

In this case, rather than spawning off AI copies (or delegating to flunkies), he suggests that we do these tasks ourselves. This can be valuable in cases where we might otherwise forget or skip steps, especially in cases where we don’t know all the steps that would be included in best practices.

Shai is showing us how to use ChatGPT as a mentor.

And a mentor is a valuable thing to have.
