How to succeed in life, in five steps

Step 1: Determine what you want

The first step to success is determining what you want. You need to have a clear and attainable goal to work towards. Without a goal, it will be difficult to measure your progress and determine if you are successful.

Step 2: Develop a plan

The second step is to develop a plan. This plan should detail how you will achieve your goal. It should be specific and realistic. Without a plan, it will be difficult to stay on track and achieve your goal.

Step 3: Take action

The third step is to take action. You need to put your plan into action and start working towards your goal. This step is important because it is where the rubber meets the road. Without action, your plan is just a dream.

Step 4: Persevere

The fourth step is to persevere. This step is important because success is not always easy. There will be setbacks and challenges along the way. You need to persevere and never give up on your goal.

Step 5: Celebrate your success

The fifth and final step is to celebrate your success. This step is important because it allows you to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Background & comments

It is probably not difficult to write a list like this. The AI (GPT-3) also seems to repeat certain things like “this step is important” which would probably be slightly different in each sub-section if it was a real blog post.

However, the interesting part here is that the AI was quite consistent in its messaging over a few tries. So in some sense, this might be like a simplified, boiled down, cut-to-the-chase version of all self-help blogs about success.
