The Prompt

Reading books becomes transformative when we extract insights and apply them to our lives. Today's prompt morphs this process into a virtual life coach.

It delves into summaries of three of my favourite books, extracting actionable steps. Then, it applies these steps across three life examples. This method is inspired by the Wheel of Life, a concept pioneered by industry leader Paul J. Meyer in the 1960s to help people realise their goals.

You can access the prompt directly in ChatGPT here.

For instance, Marcus Aurelius's "Meditations" a series of personal writings by the great 2nd-century philosopher can guide business leadership. Similarly, Sun Tzu's "The Art of War," while a military manual, offers potent strategies for our personal growth.

This cross-application is uncovered when using your ChatGPT life coach.
