🌟 GPT of The Week

Make Your Workload More Manageable & Your Days More Productive

The Mavy - Personal AI Executive Assistant GPT efficiently manages your schedule, prioritizes tasks, handles email communication, ensures you’re prepared for meetings, and more.

While you’ll get the most out of this GPT by setting up a paid Mavex account (starting at $25/month), you don’t need an account — or to spend any money — to reap the benefits of this GPT.

What You Get With No Account

Perhaps our favorite thing this GPT does is help with daily planning. Simply tell it your to-do list, any priorities, your available hours, and other important details, and it will create an hour-by-hour plan for your day (with explanations for it’s choices). It can also help you with:

  • Email: Tell it what the email is about, and it will draft it for you

  • Meetings: Let it draft your meeting agendas & talking points + get suggestions for conducting productive meetings

  • Insights & Strategies: Get tips for prioritizing tasks, minimizing distractions, & managing stress + work-life balance

  • Decision Support: Receive guidance (& frameworks) for making informed decisions

  • General Executive Assistance: Have it draft your professional bio, prepare for presentations, perform research, & more

What You Get With a Paid Account

A paid Mavex account take’s the GPT’s capabilities even further by:

  • Sending daily summaries of your schedule, important tasks, & critical emails

  • Creating, updating, or deleting events in your calendar & ensuring your high-priority tasks are scheduled

  • Finding & booking meeting times based on your availability & preferences

  • Sending follow-up emails after meetings

  • Setting up task, deadline, & meeting reminders (tailored to your preferred timing & communication method)

💡 Quick Tutorial

Selectively Alter Parts of Midjourney Images

Midjourney’s powerful inpainting tool unleashes your creative expression by making targeted modifications to images, such as:

  • Removing unwanted objects/elements from an image

  • Modifying existing elements (e.g., change a character’s outfit or alter a facial expression)

  • Introducing new elements (e.g., add a hat on someone or insert another character)

  • Reconstructing damaged or incomplete areas

  • Iterating with different image variations

  • Changing the image’s overall composition & aesthetics

Step-by-Step Instructions

Let’s say you want to recreate a famous artwork — but with your own custom feel. To do so, you would:

Step 1: Enable Remix Mode

NOTE: With Remix Mode turned off, Midjourney will determine the best way to edit any section of your image that you select for editing. Turning it on makes a significant difference by unlocking more editing capabilities.

To enable Remix Mode, use the /settings command to bring up the settings menu, and toggle on the Remix Mode button.

Step 2: Create Your Starter Image

Create and input a text prompt that describes the setting, subject, composition, color, lighting, specific elements, and overall feel of the image. Be as detailed as possible. Also be sure not to mention the actual painting so that Midjourney generates a new take on it.


If you have a specific piece of art in mind, input it into the Art Style Explorer GPT, which will analyze it and generate a prompt for you to use.

If you want to create your own image, use the Midjourney — MJ Prompt Generator GPT for assistance in writing a detailed prompt.

Step 3: Upscale Your Image of Choice

NOTE: You have to upscale the image in order to access the inpainting feature. Plus, upscaling also provides higher resolution and more detail to work with, allowing for more precise edits.

It will generate 4 image options for you to select from. To upscale one, simply click one of the ‘U’ buttons (clicking on U1 will upscale the first image, U2 the second image, and so on).

Step 4: Make Inpainting Edits

1. Hit “Vary (Region)” below your upscaled image.

2. In the bottom left, click on either the rectangle selection tool or the freehand/lasso selection tool (which allows for more precision and/or irregular shapes). Then click and drag your mouse around the area you want to modify.

3. Create and type in a prompt for what you want modified, added, removed, etc.. Then select the generated image of your choice, and watch Midjourney work its magic.
