Discussion article for the meetup : Boston: How to Beat Perfectionism

WHEN: 17 May 2015 03:30:04PM (-0400)

WHERE: 98 Elm Street, Somerville

How to Beat Perfectionism (or at least reduce it)

Are you a perfectionist? Do you want to be? Do you want to not be? Jesse Galef will talk on this matter, and his slides will be flawless.

Join us at the Citadel for the talk and discussion!

Cambridge/Boston-area Less Wrong meetups start at 3:30pm on the first and third Sunday of every month.

The default location is at the Citadel Rationalist House in Porter Sq, at 98 Elm St, apt 1, Somerville (Occasionally, meetups take place at other locations, such as MIT or Harvard. This will be specified as needed)

Our default schedule is as follows:

—Phase 1: Arrival, greetings, unstructured conversation.

—Phase 2: The headline event. This starts promptly at 4pm, and lasts 30-60 minutes.

—Phase 3: Further discussion. We'll explore the ideas raised in phase 2, often in smaller groups.

—Phase 4: Dinner.

Perfectionism is often a problem for me, and I would be extremely grateful if someone could record Jesse Galef's talk or if someone could get me the slides! A review of any consensus reached in Phase 3 would also be valuable.

Lemme see if I can make it out to this.
