Discussion article for the meetup : Goal factoring
Goal factoring is a technique for introspection to help identify and achieve your goals. It helps choose day-to-day activities that efficiently achieve short and long term purposes. We'll focus on "bottom-up" goal factoring. Here, you look at activities you already do regularly, like check your email and play board games on Saturdays. You ask yourself what purposes these fulfill, like being reachable by colleagues and relaxing after the week. You brainstorm alternatives that achieve the same purpose. Finally, you see if you can get the same outcomes more efficiently.
We'll practice this as a group to see how it works, then split into pairs and practice more. Bring your constraint satisfiability solving programs. Just kidding, just bring yourself :) Check out a template - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BCoE9PoqOuUjl70S63764iZgqfpo94gPhjpS5EWNnMw/edit
Format: We meet and start hanging out at 5:45, but don't officially start doing the meetup topic until 6:00 to accomodate stragglers. We often go out for dinner after the meetup.
How to find us: The meetup is at a KTH academic building and the room is on the 5th floor, two stairs up.
