When our lives are busy, planning is critical to staying organized, following up and being productive. Traditional planning methods, such as paper journals or to-do lists, have been around for decades, but they may not work for everyone. With the rise of artificial intelligence and natural language processing, there is now a more personalized and flexible approach to planning that has the potential to revolutionize the way we approach our daily tasks. In this article, we’ll explore how ChatGPT is changing the way we approach planning.
The problem with traditional planning #
GTD, Four Quadrants, Tomato Clock, OKR, Kanban …… they may not work for everyone. Some people find it challenging to stick to a strict schedule or long list of tasks, while others have difficulty keeping track of multiple schedules or to-do lists. In addition, traditional planning methods do not offer the flexibility to adjust to unexpected changes in your daily routine. In this age of customization, each person may need to find an efficiency methodology that works for them on their own. This is where ChatGPT comes in.
ChatGPT helps us plan our time by being a trained language model that can assist us with a variety of tasks, including planning. It uses natural language processing to understand user input and generate personalized plans based on their unique needs and preferences. For example, if you type “plan my day”, ChatGPT can create a schedule for you based on your priorities and tasks. It can also suggest ideas and activities based on your preferences and interests, making planning more enjoyable and easy.
ChatGPT’s unique features make it a valuable tool for planning. As you use it, it learns your preferences and habits, making its suggestions more accurate and personalized. Its natural language processing capabilities make it easy to communicate with it, and it can understand complex commands and questions. In addition, ChatGPT’s ability to generate ideas and suggestions can help users overcome creative blocks or come up with new ideas for projects.
The following scenario is our vision of a finished version of ElisiAI:
Next, we take a day in the life of one Elisi user, Alex, a busy professional lawyer who has difficulty keeping track of his daily tasks and priorities. He often feels overwhelmed and stressed, which affects his work and well-being. With Elisi AI, Alex can always create a personalized plan that works for him. In the morning, Alex enters “Plan my day” and Elisi AI generates a detailed schedule of tasks, food, exercise and rest based on past data and existing schedules, from which Alex selects some good suggestions and creates a plan for the day. Throughout the day, Alex can enter updates as needed and Elisi AI will adjust and update the plan accordingly. When Alex gets stuck on a project, he can ask Elisi AI for advice and it will provide inspiration and ideas on how to proceed. At the end of the day, Elisi AI will send a summary of the day and warm encouragement, so Alex will experience a sense of accomplishment and stop feeling nervous, and he can also chat with Elisi AI for a while and let it help him solve some troubles.
According to chatGPT’s own answer summary, using it for planning can have the following advantages:
- Personalized planning: AI can understand user input through natural language processing and generate a personalized plan based on the user’s needs and preferences. This means everyone can get a plan that works for them, avoiding the one-size-fits-all problem of traditional planning methods.
- More flexible planning: AI can adjust plans in real time based on user input to accommodate unexpected changes and shifts in priorities. When meetings are delayed or tasks take longer, AI can help you adjust your plan to ensure you can complete tasks in a timely manner.
