I think you should think of me as a “Personal trainer, but for rationality”. That is – during sessions we will do deliberate practice on particular rationality techniques. If you’re thinking, “I have a major uncertain problem, but I don’t really know what it is or which techniques I should use” – then I’m not your guy. Other coaches might be better. But if what you want is, “someone to spot me as I apply particular exercises to my problems, trying them over and over again until they really stick and I understand them, and gradually attempting more challenging problems” — then I’m happy to help.
Exercises I can help with: murphyjitsu, goal factoring, double crux, systemization, resolve cycles, comfort zone expansion, deliberate performance.
