ChatGPT, ChatGPT write me a post

As noted previously, ChatGPT is a pretty amazing AI chat bot with some very human limitations (basically, it’s kind of a bore and a blowhard).

For fun, I decided to have ChatGPT write me a blog post for my quotes section. I mean, maybe the bot can just take over here. 🤷🏻‍♂️

> write a brief, inspiring blog post with a famous quote

After spitting out several posts about Steve Jobs quotes, I had to clarify… while Steve Jobs had some great things to say, let’s try something new.

> write a brief, inspiring blog post with a famous quote not from Steve Jobs

The result is definitely Michael Scott certified.


"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." - Wayne Gretzky

This quote from legendary hockey player Wayne Gretzky reminds us that in order to succeed, we have to take risks and be willing to step out of our comfort zone. It's easy to play it safe and stick with what we know, but it's only by taking chances that we can truly grow and reach our full potential.

It's okay to be afraid of failure, but we have to remember that failure is a natural part of the journey towards success. Every missed shot is an opportunity to learn and improve. And even if we do fail, we can take comfort in knowing that we tried our best and that we have the chance to try again.

So don't be afraid to take that shot, whatever it may be. Whether it's pursuing a new career, starting a business, or trying something new, have the courage to step out and take a chance. You never know what amazing things you'll accomplish when you embrace the unknown.


So, mission accomplished: it is brief and inspiring and it does have a quote.

I don’t remember asking it to be comically generic and cliched. I guess it took its own initiative on that. 😆

“How can a guy think and hit at the same time?”

In honor of last night’s World Series no-hitter (this first since 1956) here’s a quote from Yogi Berra, the guy who never said most of the things he said. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Apparently he was frustrated with his coach, who told him to think his way out of a batting slump. 🤷🏻‍♂️

How can a guy think and hit at the same time?

Yogi Berra

If you’ve tried to hit a 90 mph pitch (which I did once or twice at a batting cage), you know exactly what he’s talking about. You can’t even see the ball at that speed much less think about hitting it.

What are some other things you can’t think and do at the same time? Offhand I’m thinking of skateboarding, singing, dancing, playing guitar, shuffling a deck of cards, telling a joke…

“Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.”

I can’t resist a good Einstein quote. The quintessential scientist knew that it takes a lot more than numbers to solve big, break-through problems.

He also had a knack for communicating powerful human ideas simply.

Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.

Albert Einstein

If you want to be like Einstein, don’t chase success. Just stay curious and bring value.
