ChatGPT, Sleep and Sad Statistics

Welcome to the Growth Guide, a weekly newsletter where I share actionable ideas to help you Live Better, Achieve More and Be Financially Free.

Live Better

This week on the Growth Guide Podcast we talked to Dr. Chris Winter, author of The Sleep Solution: Why Your Sleep Is Broken and How to Fix it.

35% of people sleep <7 hours per night.

If you’re one of them, it could be killing you.

Lack of sleep has been linked to 7 of the 15 leading causes of death.

This book will help you solve your sleep challenges with recommendations like:

  • Reduce caffeine in-take

  • Have a consistent wake-up time

  • View exercise as a non-negotiable

  • Create a sanctuary in your bedroom

  • Establish a routine for rest, eating and exercise

  • Compensate for sleep by napping or increasing sleep on weekends

Achieve More

ChatGPT may be the most powerful technology we’ve ever seen.

But, most of us don’t have a clue how to use it to its maximum potential.

I want to share a simple framework on how I use ChatGPT as my own personal:

  • Intern

  • Assistant

  • Researcher

The key with any of these roles on your team, whether they’re in real life or artificial intelligence, is you need to:

  1. Give clear direction

  2. Review any work product

  3. Refine your directions further

  4. Continue to rinse and repeat the process.

Prompts aren’t the answer.

What you need to learn is the process of using AI iteratively and as an assistant.

Be Financially Free

I read the saddest statistic yesterday.

30% of Americans can't retire until they're 80,

And life expectancy is 77...I don’t want that to be you.

This Ultimate Personal Finance Guide should help you, my friends.

A Thought

It’s so easy to lose sight of the finish line.

The money comes in and it goes out without a thought.

It isn’t until we’re intentional about the future that we change the present.

A Question

How can you change your income or spending to retire when you want to?
