Just wanted to note that I really appreciate the clarity of the visual summary / ballpark timeline.
Tried in an online course. Hope the book helps
For what it's worth, I tried CBT-I and it wasn't successful for me, then tried ACT for insomnia which solved the issue. Specifically via a book called "The Sleep Book" by Guy Meadows. Highly recommended.
For people living in the US, at what point does it become particularly important to start following these methods? I assume it’s always beneficial, but risk adjusted not particularly important until there start being more cases in the US or until we start having more cases. Is that assumption right or dangerously wrong?
Thanks! I've followed this and have added a link to the full spreadsheet in the OP now.
Could you please elaborate on how I could apply this? Or where can I learn more?
Oh, I was totally wrong. I was on https://forum.effectivealtruism.org and had "include community posts" on which was why I saw it. Sorry!
Thanks! I think it's very unlikely that I was viewing the all posts category but I don't have a screenshot. And I don't think I was viewing the community page either, because I distinctly remember showing my partner that it was neat that my two posts were both on the front page one after the other at positions #2 and #3. is it possible it was re-classified as community as mentioned below by larks?
But it's mostly a moot point anyway as sounds like if it was ever on the frontpage, that was either an error or I'm mis-remembering, so it mostly clears up my question anyway :)
And makes sense that this post should be in the personal blog category, thanks!
I highly recommend the book "The Media Training Bible" – I found it to be surprisingly insightful and broadly useful.Specific to this thread, it teaches you how you can maximize the odds of being represented in a way you're happy with, rather than feeling disappointed when you see how you're quoted / the final article.
Thanks. Your comment helped me realize that I didn't accurately describe my position. My position is more accurately: I think that most people who think it's terrible that Trump is President are heavily biased by tribal ideology, and that this makes it hard for them to see clearly, and hard for them to realize that they're not seeing clearly.
That I've wondered if reducing abortions might be a suitable focus area for EA (more abortions per year in the US than people dying of smoking related illnesses in the US).
That I don't think it's terrible that Trump is President.
I think the "how" is roughly:
If you do not know the steps to your goal with high confidence, then do the following:
You can imagine that you're looking at a map, and your distant goal is somewhere on the map, but the map is blurry / not yet revealed all the way to your distant goal
So then identify what options you *do* know the steps to (the ones that _are_ visible on the map), and then pick the option from those that is most novel
This is because the more novel it is, the more likely it is to reveal large and unexpected portions of the map, p... (read more)
@AaronGertler it seems there's a bug when pasting a link in between braces ().
My suggestions so far:
Other suggestions and brief summary of what you'll get out of them:
Ah, sorry. That's my mistake! I've fixed that now by adding it to the OP.
Aaron what would you recommend so that this post has a fresh chance to get visibility? Deleting and re-posting it, leaving it as is, or something else? Thanks!
I like this!
Bonus points if the org used software to encourage this, e.g. making the inbox not visible without a second "yes, I'm sure" click unless it was during the email checking hours.
Yes, I hear your thoughts that if the culture was a certain way, then it wouldn't be an issue.
I resonate with the author's point though too, that because the marginal cost of email is now so low, it requires an explicit cultural intervention to improve the harm-benefit tradeoff of email.
The cultures didn't have the problem, then email came around, now they do have the problem, so in some ways the problem is both the culture and the tool, and could be solved by modifying either.
Could you explain how Slack is better on these fronts than email? My intuition is that Slack would be worse on these fronts than email (I think in part because I've seen one or two medium posts that talk about the always on IM culture and how it makes it harder to do focused work).
I'd like to echo a strong concern that karma based voting will lead to groupthink etc.
I'd feel substantially better if it was karma based upvotes only, and no karma based downvotes. Karma based downvotes allow community insiders to effectively kill posts.
Possible suggestion (for Julia): Posting the thread a day or two in advance will allow people to submit questions early (and vote on which questions they want to see answered), so that Holden's time can be maximized by giving him more questions to answer on Monday. So that he's not waiting on Mon, ready to answer questions but with no unanswered questions available.
(This only applies if you think that otherwise there might not be enough questions posted to fully utilize the 3 hours)
You note that CEA and 80K don't seem to be struggling for funds.
What makes you say that? (Not saying I don't agree, just am unsure)
Thanks very much for posting this series. Thorough!
