Edit: Cohorts are basically full for now, will let people know if spaces open up.

I've got some new material I'm working on a related to overcoming procrastination and akrasia. It breaks down the skill of focus/willpower into seven "mental habits" that when stacked, are what you need to overcome procrastination. I wrote a bit more about what the habits are on my Shortform Feed [LW · GW].

I'd love to test teaching the material with a few cohorts before I finalize it into a course. The commitment would be 30 minutes a day for 7 days, free for the first few cohorts. The sessions are about 1/3 teaching, 2/3 practice of the skills. If anyone here is interested let me know.

Assuming this is online, I'm interested. (Though if this involves making and sharing real life goals, and using techniques in order to solve them, I have some privacy concerns.)
