Ask AI What to Watch – Steve Pavlina

After engaged on my Q2 2023 objectives yesterday night (by way of Aware Progress Membership’s 5-step objective setting course of), I wished some chill time earlier than mattress, so I requested ChatGPT to advocate an episode of Star Trek: The Subsequent Era that will be an ideal match for my objectives.

“The Inside Mild” is one in every of my all-time favourite episodes, and I might additionally see that it resonated fairly properly with my objectives. In order that was a really strong decide.

I didn’t really feel like rewatching that episode although since I’d seen it not that way back. So…

I hadn’t seen “Sarek” shortly, so I figured I’d rewatch it and see if it resonated, and I invited Rachelle to affix me. She loves it once I decide an episode and she or he has to guess the title, ideally earlier than the opening credit begin. She nailed it after all – this can be a fairly simple one to guess for anybody aware of the present.

Each episodes that ChatGPT really helpful are about characters coming to phrases with a brand new actuality, one that may’t be understood with logic alone however that includes an enormous emotional journey into a brand new sense of self. They’re each significant matches for my Q2 objectives.

Watching “Sarek” with this further layer of curiosity made the episode extra participating than it in any other case would have been. It helped me join some further dots amongst my objectives. There was lots of humor in that perspective too since a number of characters lose emotional management through the episode, together with an enormous bar combat scene. That helped me settle for that my objectives are going to ask a bit extra chaos into my life, and I’ll simply need to roll with it.

I do know that many individuals see films and TV exhibits as distractions from private development. These individuals are dreadful and boring NPCs, so simply keep away from them if you happen to occur to know higher.

I grew up loving films and had many favourite exhibits, similar to Star Trek, so I’ve all the time related this type of media with inspiration and development. I typically get enjoyable syncs from them too. I like inserting film references in our programs as properly, generally in obscure methods simply to see if individuals discover them.

If you wish to watch a present or film in a deeper or extra significant manner, give your standards to ChatGPT and ask it to advocate one thing. Once you get a advocate that appears affordable, watch it with the angle that it comprises hidden messages or syncs for you. I believe you’ll discover this method participating.

Curiously there was a significant sync within the AI’s suggestion too. As CGC’s Group Supervisor, Rachelle was making an attempt to select the April CGC problem – we do a brand new 30-day problem in CGC every month – and she or he had simply floated the concept of doing a vulnerability problem. That concept resonated with me too, after which the AI beamed us a well timed sync about it, so we’re going with it.

I additionally discovered it actually participating to undergo the goal-setting course of with ChatGPT this time. As soon as I’d accomplished sufficient components of the method, such because the journaling prompts, I might even have it predict the objectives I used to be going to set. I’d say it was about 80% correct, and it prompt one objective that I hadn’t thought of however that appeared like a very nice one to incorporate. I like how AI can spot strengths and wishes in us that we would overlook.

One other good contact was to ask ChatGPT to rephrase my objectives to be extra personally motivating for me, based mostly on what it had realized about me to date. It selected totally different phrasing than I might have, and I did certainly like its model higher (with some minor tweaks).
