Meetup : Canberra: Akrasia-busters!
Discussion article for the meetup : Canberra: Akrasia-busters!
Alexa will give a talk about using rewards to fight akrasia. Where is it better to set up external rewards and where should we focus on intrinsic motivation? Techniques include making short-term actions feel related to long-term ones as well as actually being so, to increase motivation and reduce boredom and apathy, and using intrinsic motivation to stop worrying about whether an instrumental action will work instead of just doing it.
