There is a fundamental tectonic change happening in the way work gets done – White Collar knowledge work to be specific.

This new technology is creating a new category of worker beyond what has been the sort of top of the pyramid, the Knowledge Workers. There’s a new layer above the Knowledge Worker emerging called the Creator Capitalist – someone who gets paid not simply to apply knowledge, but to create it. And that’s because the value of existing knowledge is dropping exponentially every day with the emergence of AI.

Today, let’s talk about how this is already becoming a radically different future right in front of our eyes, powered by chatGPT.

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is the fastest growing application or website in the history of humanity by quite a lot. And while there are users that only see it as a minor amusement at the moment, people have been heavily using it for their jobs and businesses already. There are entrepreneurs, writers and other related enterprises that use it to write newsletters, blog posts, and even outlines for book ideas.

Of course, you don’t just put it the prompt and take the ChatGPT output as it is. While it is doing a pretty good job, even with niche-y things, there’s still room for improvement, as well as giving it the old human touch. But the biggest thing here is, it saves people time. Time that could be better spent on improving other aspects of your business.

How ChatGPT can innovate your craft

In  terms of creating content, whether it be an blog article, newsletter, or marketing content, there is so many ways you can take advantage of this technology.

As mentioned earlier, you can use it to write first drafts to flesh out an idea you have and refine it afterwards to make it more unique and correct stuff that seem off-point to what you had in mind. You can also use in something as simple as improving the readability and format of the thing you’ve already written beforehand.

You can even use ChatGPT to learn new things before creating your content by providing it with sources and different templates on which to base the content you intend to create later.

The AI is as smart as you make it to be

While the AI has a lot of capabilities that it can do, it all still boils down to how we use it. An example would be the prompts that we give ChatGPT to execute. Being too vague or general with your prompts can yield confusing and subpar results, as multiple users have observed. So it is best to do some research from prompt engineers on how to maximize the results of your requests to the AI, so you’ll get the best quality of content or feedback all the time.
