Done.

Done! It is still not perfect, but hopefully good enough.

Thank you for this suggestion. I have added forming implementation intentions as step 5b. I think that having set SMART goals can be helpful for formulating implementation intentions. SMART goals help you realize what you have to do and how often, whereas implementation intentions increase the likelihood that you will actually do what it takes to achieve what you have resolved to accomplish.

Hi,

I am Falk. I am a PhD student in the computational cognitive science lab at UC Berkeley. I develop and test computational models of bounded rationality in decision making and reasoning. I am particularly interested in how we can learn to be more rational. To answer this question I am developing a computational theory of cognitive plasticity. I am also very interested in self-improvement, and I am hoping to develop strategies, tools and interventions that will help us become more rational.

I have written a blog post on what we can do to accelerate our cognitive growth that I would like to share with the LessWrong community, but it seems that I am not allowed to post it yet.
