Newsletter 8th September 2022: Fake work? 🤔 & shiny new things

by | Newsletters


It has come to the attention of the management…

Oh wait; I have no manager. 🤣

There’s only me, trying to manage myself.

But I catch myself doing work that’s not real work all of the time.

I seem to work long hours, often sitting here at my PC from early in the morning until late at night, just stopping for meals and to walk the dog.

But not always taking action on the things I’m trying to achieve.

So what am I doing?

I’m taking courses on things I don’t need to get my project done.

I’m looking at products to buy that I don’t need right now and spending precious time deciding whether to buy them.

I’m doing research and falling down rabbit holes, just like I talked about yesterday.

I’m on zoom chatting to other marketers.

In other words, fake work!

Now, all of that is okay and often leads to new ideas (and it’s fun so why stop it?)

But I’m just thinking it might be more restful to get all the actual work done in the morning and then “play” the rest of the day (even if that’s on the PC) rather than feeling I’m always behind.

What about you? Does your output justify the hours you spend behind your laptop?

Do you do the important things first?  💖

jasper art

Many of us use Jasper to provide new content ideas and help with copywriting and other writing tasks but did you know you can now also create unlimited unique images for commercial use with Jasper Art?

You can tell it what you want a picture of and it will create 100% unique bespoke pictures to match your request.

Take a look and see what you think (link to Jasper Art is at the top of the page):

It’s just $20 a month on top of the usual $29 writing subscription for unlimited images.  Early access price.

You can also get a free trial of standard Jasper on that page with 10,000 generated words if you want some free written content.

Probably worth trying out Jasper Art and getting grandfathered in at this stage if it’s something you think you could use.

Although Jasper is not perfect, it’s pretty good for many types of images and AI is destined to improve all the time meaning it is likely to also get more expensive.

My bonus: If you subscribe to Jasper through my link (paid words or words and art), you can choose any one bonus report from the list at the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖
