The Ultimate ChatGPT Prompt Writing Guide

The power of ChatGPT is in the prompts you feed it.

It’s not a mind reader. Feeding it a few words and expecting it to return an award-winning novel is not going to happen. So you need to get specific with your prompts.

90% fail to use the tool to its potential because of this.

Let’s change that. In my 100 hours of research, here are the best prompt frameworks.

The Prompt Framework

I want you to act as a [person, roles, object, character].

You will [help, develop, create, report, apply, analyse] for [audience]. 

My first suggestion request is [your request statement].

Let’s put this together with a few examples:

“I want you to act as a learning and development manager. You will help create questions to ask line managers about their team’s performance. My first suggestion is “I need help writing questions for a survey on training needs”.

I want you to act as a super headline generator. I will type keywords via comma and you will reply with amazing titles. My first keywords are habits, skills, careers.

I want you to act as an SEO consultant. You will help me create SEO-friendly metadata. My first suggestion request is “I need help with my metadata for an article selling the features of the new iPhone”.

Get it? Use specific prompts to get the best results.

The Optimal Skill Building Algorithm

Knowing how to build the right skills is not as easy as one might think…

In a world of bloated centralised content catalogues that mostly promote decision fatigue. The aspiration of the self-led learning movement at scale is quite difficult to achieve.

Why so?

Simple really. Many of us don’t know what we need to learn.

And, even when we do, knowing what resources will actually help us in the quest to build a skill is not so clear-cut.
