🦸🏼 Unmasking AI: Ninja Tools and AI News for Heart Driven Coaches
My pal RJ Redden is an AI master who’s on a mission to harness the time-saving power of AI — while remaining and sounding human.

She describes this event as follows:

“This isn’t about floating in a sea of jargon. This is about taking AI, stripping it down, and helping you see how it can be your loyal sidekick.

“And here’s the juicy part. Ever been haunted by the ghost of the perfect prompt? The one that keeps evading you? Well, we’ve got the “One Prompt To Rule Them All’ waiting for you. A tool so handy, it’ll make crafting AI prompts feel like a breeze. And you don’t need to be a tech genius to get the hang of it.

“So, close your eyes and imagine this. No more hours lost to admin work. More time sparking those lightbulb moments in your clients. Isn’t that the dream?”

This happens on Wednesday, Feb. 7. Details and registration here.

🤔 Extreme brainstorming questions to trigger new, better ideas
Thanks to Tim Ferriss for recommending this brain-bender.

By Jason Cohen, this collection of prompts will “jostle you out of tiny thinking. Each stretches some dimension of reality to an extreme. So extreme that it is nearly nonsense. But dramatically different perspectives can reveal distinctly new ideas.”

🎶 Joni Mitchell – Two Sides of “Both Sides Now”
Joni Mitchell wrote “Both Sides Now” in the mid-1960s (Judy Collins recorded it in 1967). Joni included it on her 1969 album “Clouds,” and she performed it live at the Isle of Wight festival — when she was 26.

Fifty-two years later, Joni made a surprise appearance at The Newport Folk Festival on July 24, 2022 and performed “Both Sides Now” and ten other songs.

Last year, the entire 2022 set was released as an album “At Newport.”

Last night, “At Newport” won a Grammy for Best Folk Album, and Joni performed “Both Sides Now” — her first ever performance at The Grammy Awards.

As a young woman, she suffered from polio. In 2015, she suffered a brain aneurysm that nearly killed her.

When Brandi Carlile introduced Joni last night, she said, Joni has “learned to walk THREE times.” Incredible.

Joni Mitchell is 80.

Here are two videos of Joni performing “Both Sides Now” — at Isle of Wight in 1970 and at Newport in 2022.

Words to Ponder

“I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all”

– Joni Mitchell
