I’ll just copy whole tree from org-mode with deliberations on Hammertime factoring with minimal editing
Maybe this will be helpful to someone, and if someone gives me feedback—that could be helpful to me too. Maybe I’m missing something, maybe I’m not going deep enough?
(Is there a way to hide long part of the comment under a spoiler?)
Initial plan: set 60 minute timer for whole daily Hammertime session.
Daily Challenge: 20min Goal Factoring for the Hammertime** TODO hamertime goal factoring** Let’s go*** Goal: create feeling of momentum in self-development**** Goal: use this momentum to keep investing time into self-development, into reaching goals***** Goal: have stable life, where my needs are being met, with joy*** Goal: finish something that looks impressive**** Goal: have more weight and approval in discussions around rationalists*** Goal: invest time into practicing, so if I fail I could tell myself that I wasn’t idle**** Goal: to have internal peace in case of failure too*** Goal: tingle joy of learning new things*** Goal: decrease unpleasantness of having bugs—physical, mental, developmental, job related**** Goal: have joy in things I do**** Goal: have more energy to help people around me, see their happiness*** Aversion: not always easy to understand what to do in remaining 60 minute timer, not wanting to approach**** Goal: feel ease and clarity, evade discomfort and thinking**** Goal: trust myself to invest time into helpful, useful things*** Aversion: feeling that my notes will be lost, unusable and unhelpful very soon**** Goal: trust myself to invest time into helpful thingsi.e not having enough belief in helpfulness of the things I do right now*** Aversion: my work table is less than pleasant to work on—table legs are in the way, easy to scratch myself**** Goal: evade discomfort*** Aversion: “but I’m falling behind on my regular job, getting lost”**** Goal: support trust my colleagues have in me*** Aversion: “I feel alone in this attempt to self-improve”**** Goal: to have social support, to do things social circle approves*** Updated Plan:i.e can I improve /this/ thing or maybe subsctitue with another course of action that solves same goals, with less aversion or cost?**** Immediately after Hammertime—keep daily hour of self development, with same techniques I guessmaybe also—learning and installing GTD, and second brain for a could of weeks**** Some of the hammertime bugs can and should be attempted with the tool I’m learning on this particular day**** Definitely write daily in the commentsmaybe also write daily in the chat for russian lesswrongers?
didn’t address the ‘falling behind on regular job’, will ignore for now, I guess
