Mastering Task Prioritization: Insights from Anna Liebel

Expert, Mentor, and Moderator at Gründerklubben

I am pleased to share a podcast featuring Anna Liebel, an expert, mentor, and moderator at Gründerklubben (35 700+ members), and a contributor at Gründervekst – the members’ portal.

– Witnessing so much (unnecessary) overwhelm among the fantastic, smart, and ambitious individuals around me is painful.

– A common mistake lies in the misguided relationship with people’s to-do lists. Therefore, I offer you a slight mindset shift and actionable steps to address that mistake and become better at prioritizing tasks.

In this episode, you will learn about:

1. What a to-do list is A to-do list is often our companion in daily life, a list of tasks we must complete to achieve our goals. But why do so many of us feel overwhelmed by this list?

2. Why it’s OK (and desirable!) to never finish your to-do list First and foremost, it’s crucial to understand that it’s entirely OK and, in fact, desirable to never completely finish your to-do list. The goal is not to eliminate all tasks but to manage them effectively and prioritize correctly.

3. Working on task prioritization Instead of viewing the to-do list as a checklist you must complete, you can shift your perspective to working with priorities for the day. Identify the most crucial tasks that need to be done during the day and focus on those.

4. Common mistake of conflicts between the calendar and priorities A common mistake is letting the calendar clash with priorities. Filling the calendar with too many meetings and commitments can lead to the real priorities being deprioritized. Find a balance between commitments and time for focused work.

5. How to stick to your priorities To stick to your priorities, you can use a combination of time blocking, saying no to unnecessary commitments, and regularly evaluating and adjusting your goals.

– Empower yourself with these insights and take control of your to-do list. Remember, it’s not about finishing everything, but about finishing what matters most.

Plast Nordic plan to build chemical recycling plants across the Nordic region

Plast Nordic has been working with the Nordic value chain of plastic- and textile waste since 2019, this because there is a technology developed by gr3n SA, that enables the chemical recycling of PET plastic and polyester, commonly used in beverage bottles, food packaging, and textiles. They are now planning their first chemical recycling plant.

The final product will be a polymer from recycled monomers (ie terephthalic acid, TPA and monoethylene glycol, MEG) with the same properties as that of petroleum, which currently dominates the global market.

With around 430,000 tons of PET waste every year in the Nordic region, Plast Nordic aims to both reduce CO2 emissions and provide a unique sustainable solution for waste management in the Nordic countries.

How to use ChatGTP in your startup

Many of us have seen the light in terms of how to use ChatGPT. I have done some research on how others use the tool, and I will also provide some examples of how I use it myself. I hope this can be an inspiration on how to use ChatGPT in your startup to have a more efficient day. There are also great opportunities here to create new business opportunities and disruptive solutions.

At the end of the article, there are some tips on how to get started, including registration and tips on other resources and tools that are available. What are your best tips?

Use in meetings

I am engaged as an advisor for a foundation based in Los Angeles that works with patents. In our last meeting, we used ChatGPT to create a list of Open AI platforms. We also asked a creative question about the use of NFTs (non-fungible tokens). We got suitable answers, which provided a basis for an excellent discussion.

Instead of the old “check it out and we’ll take it up at the next meeting,” we could clarify this in 2 minutes.

Here are some other examples:

Notes: You can use ChatGPT to take notes from the meeting automatically while you are talking. This can save you time and ensure that you don’t forget important points.

Questions and answers: You can use ChatGPT to answer questions that come up in the meeting, so you can stay focused on the discussion.

References and examples: You can use ChatGPT to find relevant references and examples that can help strengthen your arguments during the meeting.

Summary: After the meeting, you can use ChatGPT to create a summary of what we discussed and the important decisions that were made.

Translation: If the meeting is to be held in multiple languages, ChatGPT can help you translate what is being said into the desired language.

Content creation

Joshua Wöhle, co-founder and CEO of edtech company Mindstone and former co-founder and CTO of SuperAwesome, uses generative AI for a range of uses in his startup day-to-day. This includes a social media assistant he built with the help of ChatGPT and image generators DALL-E and Stable Diffusion.

Wöhle’s Excel app allows him to enter the text for a tweet in a single spreadsheet, which then creates graphics for use on social media. This includes a headline for the tweet, placed over an image that is automatically generated based on the text he writes.

“It just means that the time to go from an idea to something you can publish is now a minute or less, instead of it taking around 20 minutes,” says Wöhle.

He also uses ChatGPT in multiple ways to help him generate content for his startup. This includes feeding the system with examples of previous essays he has written and asking it to suggest ideas for new posts. He also uses ChatGPT to come up with suggestions for questions for guests on his podcast.

However, even though Wöhle says that generative AI has strengthened his ability to create high-quality content, he still plans to hire a head of product marketing at Mindstone, but with different expectations.

– I will still want an expert there, but my expectations for that person have skyrocketed. I expect them to do more work at the same time.

Joshua Wöhle

Integration with Google Search

ChatGPT for Google allows you to integrate ChatGPT into Google Chrome and get search results directly in the browser. This enhances the value of the search results. Keep in mind that the data used as the basis for answers is about two years old.

Features:

  • Access ChatGPT directly from the pop-up
  • Markdown rendering
  • Code highlights
  • Dark theme
  • Feedback to improve ChatGPT
  • Copy to clipboard
  • Taking notes and creating summaries of videos

Glasp is a tool for taking notes and adding markings from websites. You can find and save articles from friends. I use it mostly to transcribe and create summaries of videos. Supports all the most popular browsers.

Coding

Peter Nixey is the founder of the task management app Intentional. As a solo founder, Nixey is currently building the entire technology stack himself. Peter uses ChatGPT every day as a personal web development assistant.

He describes in an article on Sifted how it has given him the ability to speed up work with the development tool, Docker. He hadn’t used it before, and uses ChatGPT to ask for details about the tool.

“It’s been very good at explaining what I should do. It’s been very good at giving me code examples. ChatGPT explains distinct lines of code and why they’re there, and does it efficiently,” he says.

He says it would normally have taken him about two weeks to learn how to use the tool. With ChatGPT it took two days.

See also the videos further down in the article.

Who will own ChatGPT in the future?

According to The New York Times, Microsoft is in talks with OpenAI about an investment of up to $10 billion. They have previously invested $3 billion, and have a “right of first refusal” in the agreement.

I consider it likely that they will invest more.

Satya’s (Microsoft CEO) expectation is that we will push the boundaries of AI, and we will do this for all of our products.

Eric Boyd, head of Microsoft’s AI team

Other ways to use AI in your business

There are many ways to use artificial intelligence (AI) in a startup. Here are some other examples:

Prediction models: AI models can predict future trends and outcomes, such as in economics, customer behavior, and sales.

Automation: AI technology can automate repetitive tasks, such as responding to customer questions, following up on leads, or handling administration.

Analysis: AI tools can analyze large amounts of data, such as to identify patterns or to uncover new opportunities.

Image and sound recognition: AI tools can recognize objects or sounds, such as to sort images or to recognize voices.

Quantitative analysis: AI tools can analyze large amounts of data and generate reports that can help you make better decisions.

Development of new products: AI can develop new products or services that are more efficient or better suited to customers.

Join the conversation
How are you using ChatGPT or other AI tools today and what plans do you have for the future?

Registration

ChatGPT is available via a website, so there is no need to download anything. OpenAI has not yet released an official app, although the app stores are full of fake versions. You should install and use these with caution, as they are not official ChatGPT apps.

Supposedly, you can download ChatGPT locally through GitHub, but I haven’t tried that yet.

Dou you want to learn more about how to use ChatGPT in your startup? Please connect with me on LinkedIn or other of my social channels and read more about me here.

Good luck with implementing ChatGTP into your workday and life!

Short about ChatGTP

ChatGPT is an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) model developed by OpenAI. It is a variant of the GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) model. The specialization is to generate human-like text for conversational AI.

They trained ChatGPT on a large amount of conversations and dialogues. This gives it the ability to understand context and perform a range of tasks such as answering questions, generating responses, and writing text that resembles human-written text.

They used ChatGPT in a variety of applications, such as chatbots, virtual assistants, and automated text generation.

Drake Star Q3 2022 Global Gaming Industry Report

Drake Star has published the Q3 2022 edition of its Global Gaming Industry Report providing key insights into the gaming deal activities for the first nine months of the year.

So far, the year had a record $123B+ in total deal value for almost 1000 announced and/or closed deals. The report also analyzes the key trends in the third quarter of the year.

“2022 has been a mixed year for gaming,” said Michael Metzger, Partner at Drake Star. “We saw some of the largest M&A deals ever at the start of the year and then experienced a notable slow-down in Q2’22 due to global macroeconomic challenges.

With an increase in M&A and Financings volume in Q3, we anticipate healthy deal activity and possibly even some mega deals for the rest of the year and beyond.”

Key stats for the first 9 months of the year:

$102B in announced and/or closed M&A activity across mobile, PC / console, and esports, including the largest-ever gaming acquisition of Activision by Microsoft. Embracer remained the most active consolidator in the industry. PC / console and mobile went head-to-head with 68 and 64 transactions, respectively.


$9.6B has been raised through 685 financing rounds for private companies, including 15 large $100M+ raises. The most active VCs included Bitkraft, a16z, Galaxy Interactive, and Griffin Gaming.


More than $3.4B was raised by blockchain / NFT gaming companies with almost half of the total amount raised by early-stage companies.
The Q3 report analyzes the first nine months of 2022 in terms of deal activity and volume across market segments (M&A, private placements, public markets), M&A activity by volume and multiples, public market performance and valuations, and discusses the most active gaming buyers and venture capital (VC) investors.

The report further focuses on the market activities for Q3 2022 by breaking out the most significant deals across M&A, private financings, and public market updates. As the broader markets witnessed a slowdown, gaming was also impacted but M&A and financing activities remained largely stable.

Q3 saw a significant increase in M&A volume to 81 announced deals, up from 70 deals in Q2’22. Unity’s announced $4.4B acquisition of ironSource was the largest deal in the quarter.

While the majority of the deal values were undisclosed, many of the top buyers were active including Embracer with 8 deals (Middle-Earth Enterprises, Tripwire, etc.), NetEase (Quantic Dream), Sony (Savage Games, Repeat.gg), Zynga (Storemaven), and Scopely (Stumble Guys).
Private financings also increased in Q3 to 216 deals, up from 169 financings last quarter. A total of $2.3B was raised, including large financings for FromSoftware ($260M from Tencent and Sony), Loot Mogul ($200M), Limit Break ($200M), and Animoca ($185M).


While the Crypto market continued to be under pressure, investors continued to show strong interest in blockchain gaming companies. Half of the total amount raised and 40% of all financing rounds for private gaming companies were investments in blockchain gaming.


In public markets, Faze Clan ($750M valuation) went public through a SPAC, while Valofe ($3.5B valuation) and Asia Innovations Group ($2.5B valuation) announced new SPAC deals. Technicolor Creative Studios spun off to focus on VFX and games, now listed on the Paris stock exchange at $1B valuation.

Checkstep Closes $5M

Checkstep is a UK-based startup that provides AI products for contextual content moderation on social media platforms.

This round follows a pre-seed round of $1.8 million raised less than one year ago. Dawn Capital and Form Ventures co-led the round with participation from founders GoCardLess and Indeed.

The company plans to use the funds to develop its technology and to expand its marketing and sales efforts.

Guillaume Bouchard, CEO, and Jonathan Manfield (CTO) founded Checkstep in May 2020. It offers an Artificial Intelligence-powered solution for context moderation on social media and enterprise platforms.

Checkstep is currently developing machine learning models that are state-of the-art and integrating third-party solutions for clients. Checkstep empowers human moderators with the tools and intelligence to combat harmful content.

They found the company to combat misinformation propagation at the heights of the COVID pandemic. Since then, it has expanded its focus to address other customer needs. It now covers a wider range of harms like hate speech, Child Sexual Abuse Material, bullying, and spam. It recently developed the features to include copyright management capabilities, as creative platforms are becoming more responsible.
