Automate the boring stuff, and do what you love

AI is everywhere right now. Unless you’ve been living under a rock 🪨 I’m sure you’ve come across it in one form or another. Love it or hate it, it’s here, so we might as well get used to it! So I say use it. Use it to automate all the boring stuff in your business, and keep doing what you love.

Because that’s what I’m always talking about, I thought I’d write about it (or did AI write this!?!? How can you know?!!?🫣😬) 

Picture it: it’s summer (if you’re in Manchester it isn’t but it is somewhere), you’re trying to work, you’re trying to also keep the house in some kind of livable state, and you have children to entertain (cause they wont go out CAUSE IT’S CONSTANTLY RAINING!!!) Just here?

You’re drowning in a sea of monotonous tasks, desperately wishing you could just fast-forward to the exciting parts of life?

Well, my friend, you’re in for a treat because we’re about to dive into the wonderful world of automation powered by artificial intelligence (AI). Say goodbye to mind-numbing tasks and hello to more time doing what you truly love! Which is what we started our businesses for… I didnt start a business to be chained to a desk and be told what I SHOULD be doing. [bye bye social media!!!]

I thought I’d share with you today, different ways that you can use this AI thing everyone’s talking about and enjoy your “summer” without feeling like you’re neglecting your “other” baby (the business).

Cause, let’s face it, life is too short to be spent on repetitive chores that add little to no value. Whether it’s sifting through heaps of emails, scheduling appointments, or updating spreadsheets, these tasks can drain our energy and creativity faster than a phone battery at 5%. 

You might be wondering, “Why should I care about automation? Can’t I just power through these tasks myself?”

Probably. But think about this: what if you could redirect your energy from mundane chores to activities that make your heart sing? Imagine dedicating more time to your creative projects, spending quality moments with loved ones, or simply enjoying some guilt-free relaxation. Automation isn’t about avoiding work; it’s about working smarter so you can focus on what truly matters.

Crafting Your Path to Automation Nirvana

Automation can be a big job, so rather than diving in and just going (or driving yourself crazy) take a step back and make a plan. Here’s what I’d do if I was starting out with automation. It isn’t about making more work for yourself, so make sure you take a strategic approach to what you’re doing – start with these steps! 

  1. Identify the Repetitive Tasks: Jot down the tasks that seem to repeat like clockwork. These are the prime candidates for automation.

  2. Explore AI Tools: Dive into the sea of AI-powered tools available. From email management to social media scheduling, there’s a tool for almost every task.

  3. User-Friendly All the Way: Choose tools with user-friendly interfaces and clear guides. The goal is to simplify, not complicate.

  4. Baby Steps: Start small. Integrate one automation at a time to avoid overwhelming yourself.

  5. Monitor and Refine: Keep an eye on how your automated tasks are performing. Tweak settings to ensure seamless operations.

  6. Content Creation Spark: If you’re a content creator, AI can help generate ideas or even drafts. But remember, your unique flair gives it the soul.

  7. Stay in the Loop: AI evolves swiftly. Stay updated on new tools and enhancements to fine-tune your automation strategy.

One of the most popular AI’s at the moment is Chat-GPT so I’ll use them in examples below, but there are many many more on the market and I am not an affiliate of Chat-GPT – no money is earned in the writing of this blog!

Here’s a few good examples of what you can automate.

  1. Content Generation: Whether it’s blog posts, articles, social media posts, or product descriptions, you can use ChatGPT to generate high-quality content quickly.

  2. Email Drafting: You can automate the process of drafting emails, whether it’s for customer support, outreach, or general correspondence.

  3. Idea Generation: Need fresh ideas for your creative projects, marketing campaigns, or brainstorming sessions? ChatGPT can help spark your creativity.

  4. Answering FAQs: If you have a website or platform that requires responding to frequently asked questions, you can set up ChatGPT to provide instant answers.

  5. Code Writing: If you’re a programmer, you can use ChatGPT to help generate code snippets, provide explanations, and assist in troubleshooting.

  6. Language Translation: ChatGPT can help translate text from one language to another, saving you time and effort.

  7. Generating Reports: Automate the process of generating reports, summaries, or data analysis by instructing ChatGPT to extract and format relevant information.

  8. Social Media Posting: ChatGPT can help you generate engaging social media posts and schedule them in advance.

  9. Content Summarization: If you’re dealing with long articles, reports, or research papers, ChatGPT can help you generate concise and informative summaries.

  10. Learning and Education: Use ChatGPT to explain complex concepts, answer questions, and provide explanations in various subjects.

  11. Personal Assistance: Automate tasks like setting reminders, scheduling appointments, and organizing your calendar.

  12. Text Editing and Proofreading: ChatGPT can assist in editing and proofreading your written content, suggesting improvements and corrections.

  13. Generating Ideas for Creative Projects: If you’re an artist, writer, or designer, ChatGPT can help you come up with concepts for your next masterpiece.

  14. Generating Usernames, Passwords, and Handles: Need secure and creative usernames or passwords? ChatGPT can help generate unique combinations.

  15. Storytelling and Narration: Whether you’re writing fiction or creating narratives for videos, ChatGPT can provide plot points, character ideas, and dialogue.

Remember, while ChatGPT is a versatile tool, it’s essential to review the content it generates to ensure it aligns with your intentions and desired quality. Automated content might not always capture the nuances of human creativity and context, so using it as a starting point and adding your personal touch is often a great approach.
