This is a discussion thread about applied rationality.
In the comments, please explain an actual problem you have in your life you want to solve. Using their combined powers of rationality, the community can discuss the problem with the poster and eventually propose solutions. My hope is that this will give Less Wrongers a better idea how to apply rationality to daily life.
A note to those posting problems: Please stick around long enough to try the solutions and comment on how they worked. Remember to include negative results (the solution didn't work), including mini-problems like if you meant to try a solution and didn't get around to it.
Edit: Ack! I see Alicorn posted something similar about common-knowledge problems between when I wrote this and when I posted it. Because I have a general policy against deleting my posts, I will leave this up here. I do think rationality-specific solutions are useful, but let's wait a month or so.
