Hi all-- NewBees and Veterans alike:
For myself at least, forums are inefficient. I love forums in theory, but in practice I spend so much time writing my thoughts, waiting for responses, or scavenging for insights that it’s just blatantly evident how low the information transfer per unit of time is. We all intuitively know how much faster these talks would be if we were, you know, actually having a conversation. The information transfer per unit time is just so much higher… so why not try that?
I am looking for folks who are interested in meeting up over Google Hangout once a week (preferably Sundays) to
A. collaboratively design and try out a Weekly Review Ritual.
B. discuss topics regarding habits, behavioral economics, and the Quantified Self.
The purpose of this “ritual” is to come up with a fast, habitual, social, & highly procedural weekly event that can help me (and you) revisit progress on goals, build a game plan for the week ahead, and learn new methods for life tracking. Doing this as a group (in theory) increases accountability and the flow of ideas, thus accelerating the natural selection of best practices.
I fully intend this to be sloppy at the beginning, indiscriminately taking ideas from wherever they come. Hopefully the scientific method will prevail and by the end of the year we could have a very streamlined, evidence-based, socially-engaging, and enjoyable weekly ceremony that makes us all better human beings.
If this sounds like something you’d be into, I welcome you to join me in this experiment.
Please let me know if you’re interested by responding to this forum post and do feel free to offer suggestions on how to go about this.
Note: I’m new around here! So forgive me if I was unaware of a pre-existing thing that looks like this already. (In which case, help me find it!)
