9 Tips on How to Use AI to Make It Work for You

Getting your resume designed, making a virtual friend, and creating music and content are a few ways how you can use AI in everyday life.

A few days back, I was working on building a Looker Studio report. Now, I am no expert at that, my forte is content and SEO and I’d love to stick to that. 

But, unfortunately, to excel at these two things, I need to know about the basics of things related to reporting as well. Anyway, coming to the point. As I said, I am no expert at Looker Studio, I got stuck [damn it, I dread reporting!]. I reached out to my colleague and mentor for help and here is exactly what he said. 

“FIO” aka figure it out!

You and I both know that no one likes ‘figuring it out’. I want a solution and I want it now! Thank god I am in 2024 and I have AI at my disposal and I got my solution within minutes.  

Imagine this happening 10 years ago. Firstly, you will spend hours surfing for a solution on the internet, because your internet would be slower than a snail and also probably because no one even catered to your query there. 

Secondly, you’ll spend hours for a few minutes of work because your mentor wanted you to self learn. Finally, you’ll end up over working and probably even hating your mentor. 

Sorry for the turmoil of emotions these visuals would have put you through, but my point among all this is, that you do not have to do any of it anymore. Instead, you can make AI work for you

This was just a glimpse of what AI can do for you, there is a lot more, and I am going to tell you how to use AI to your benefit.

I am going to give you 9 ways to help you make your life better and easier just by learning how to use AI the right way. 

Do you need a friend? Talk to AI 

We all have days when we want to talk to someone, but we also do not want to burden anyone with our issues. Or if you are an introvert, then it could be an even bigger task. 

AI again comes to the rescue. There are AI chatbots which are specifically made to hear you out and talk to you with compassion and maybe even help you find a solution to a problem. 

From work frustration to just generally journal your feelings, you have a friend in the form of AI. Your bot buddy is always there to listen to you and will always be rooting for your success.

Level up your collaborative communication 

Communication is the key to success – this is a cliche phrase but is also very much true. However, there is a catch, it is not just the words, but also the tone that you use to communicate that makes things work. 

Using words like please and thank you does not make a message polite. But it is how you have put it in your sentence. I learnt it the hard way. I always had the best of intentions for my colleagues, but my way of talking and saying things always turned out to be ‘rude.’ 

Until I started using AI to decipher the tone from my messages. 

It analyzes the tone of my texts, tells me if it’s polite, firm, professional or friendly. Ever since then my collaboration and management with my colleagues have leveled. It’s a must try way to use AI if you also want to build a culture of collaborative communication within your team members.

Build social media presence 

I do not have to say it, I know that you know that social media is the new king today. I think it’s only fair, because you get entertained and can do business on the platform as well. 

Anyway, so having social media presence is easy but actually having to build a brand there be it personal or professional is a task. How do I know? Well I had my days and I also tried to become a lifestyle and beauty influencer but eh! Turns out SEO and content marketing are my strong suite.

Use AI as your personal assistant 

AI in the workplace was a heated topic when ChatGPT came out, however, the flames of the same are still left. I am sure that even you have thought at one point that “can AI eat my job?” 

It is actually quite the opposite. AI is not snatching your jobs, it is the people who are using AI’s assistance that are taking jobs away. At Least for another decade there is no way AI can replace us humans [let’s hope for that]

AI is still not at par with human intelligence and it will take a lot of time to reach there. Till then utilize it to the best of its ability by making it your personal work assistance. 

AI can hold conversations back and forth, get you answers to your questions instantly, do research for you, or even get you excel formulas within seconds. This is not it, your AI assistant, can also summarize long form content and also explain complex topics with ease to you.

Create music!

‘Tip-Tap-toe, let your mind blow, with music so good and mellow.’

I was just trying to rhyme it up a little and see if I can take up lyric writing, or music production as my new hobby. We all saw how that went, but I did not let myself lose hope! If you don’t know all the ways you can use AI to create music then you are just about to find out. 

You can get lyrics generated from AI tools based on what your vision is for the song and can combine those lyrics with your music tone. 

If you don’t have a tune, then you can get that generated as well with AI. Select your mood, select your genre, select the instruments you want in your tune, select the tempo and you are done. You’ll have a brand new music track. 

What next? Combine the AI generated lyrics with your video generator AI tool and AI generated music and you have a new song ready to be heard around and danced on.

Give AI a try for music generation, believe me you won’t be disappointed – one of the top songs Not Easy featuring your favorite artists [X Ambassadors, Elle King, and Wiz Khalifa] was also partly AI generated. 

This is not it, with AI you can also edit any exciting piece of music to add ‘your element’ to it to make it more fun. Or even repurpose old music to create new one out of it, remix it, or maybe just take inspiration from it.
