Try and remember 3 or 4 things that you think would be *effective hacks* for your life but you have *not* so far implemented. Really, find three.

Probably that was not so hard.

Now think of at which moment in time did you have a maximal probability of having implemented such hacks. Sometimes you had no idea that was the moment. But sometimes you did, like when a friend tells you "I just read this great paper on how people report cartoons being funnier when their face is shaped in a more smiling fashion." and you thought "Great! I may one day implement the algorithm: if studying, force a smile".

You knew you didn't plan to read the article, you knew you trust that friend, and you knew you'd either forget it later, or in any case that *from that moment on, the likelihood of you implementing the algorithm would lower.*

So my hack of the day is: If you feel you are likely at the maximal probability moment to start a new policy, start immediately.

My friend was telling me about how he went abroad to research: "...so at this place and people there used very strong lights as cognitive enhancement and yadda yadda yadda... (stopped listening for 40s) yadda yadda yadda.... and I wrote a paper on ..." By that time my room had an extra 110W light working.

Just now_{0} I thought: It was good I installed that light. Why didn't I do the same when I felt like finding a personalized shirt website where the front would be "I Don't want to talk about: [list]" and the back "Pick your topic: [list]" to once and for all stop the gossip and sports ice-breakers?

I didn't seize the maximal probability moment. That's what happened.

Then I noticed that that_{1} was the maximal probability moment to install in my mind the maximal probability moment algorithm, I did, and *that*_{2} was the maximal probability moment of writing this post.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have_{3} a shirt to buy.
