Steal My Prompts: 20 Prompts From My ChatGPT History

Why you should care: Copying prompts is a helpful way to understand how others use ChatGPT, so you can do it too.

What you need to know: To become a better prompt engineer, scan the prompts below, and copy and paste the ones that interest you.

On with the story…

When I started my first business I couldn’t afford a programmer.

So I would find code snippets online and use tutorials to try to make it work.

My coding skills were terrible. But I was good at finding code to copy, edit and test until it did what I wanted.

Copying taught me the basics of programming to make things work.

It’s way easier to learn when we start by copying…

…so here’s a selection of my last 20 ChatGPT prompts so you can see exactly what I use it for — no holds barred!

#13 Dickie Bush’s Linkedin Post Creator

  • This is a powerful prompt crafted by Dickie Bush

  • Analyses the LinkedIn post that you give it

  • Then asks you questions to create a similar post in the same format

Hey ChatGPT, I am going to give you a text and I want you to analyze the text and then return a list of questions that someone can answer to create their own post that follows the same rhetorical structure of the original text. I will give you an example of what I want you to do first before we get started.

For example, here is a post that I might ask you to analyze:

"The most overused cold email phrase ever:

"I hope you're doing well."

Stop this for 3 reasons:

1 → It occupies your first lines (super important space)

2 → It sounds like the start of a selfish sales pitch

3 → It doesn’t add value to your pitch

It’s said by everyone

→ so you sound like everyone

It's safe to remove it and

→ get to the point "

And here is an example of how you would respond with questions:

"Question 1: What's an overused phrase or concept in your industry?

Guidance: Think about a term or phrase that is frequently used in your field to the point of becoming a cliché.

Question 2: Can you identify three reasons why this phrase should be avoided?

Guidance: List three reasons that explain why using this overused phrase could be detrimental or ineffective.

Question 3: What's a common characteristic of those who frequently use this phrase?

Guidance: Describe a characteristic that those who frequently use this overused phrase might share.

Question 4: What would be a more beneficial action to replace using this phrase?

Guidance: Propose a more effective or impactful action to replace the use of the overused phrase."

Do you understand what I want you to do?

If so, I will give you the text so you can create the questions.

I'm working with a spreadsheet that has three columns.

I need a formula that can calculate the annual total based on this frequency. The challenge is that the frequency column contains text and cannot be converted to numbers.
