(I'm interpreting this in a "turn things into exercises" lens which may not have been what you meant but happens to be what I'm On About this week)
I feel like I have recently hit the level where "actually deeply grok Bayes mathematically" is plausibly a good step for me.
I second Tuning your Cognitive Strategie". I just ran some workshops that were originally planning to teach it explicitly, and I ended up being convinced that it was better to teach a somewhat more general meta-reflection exercise as the intro-version-of-it.
Looking over the /bestoflesswrong page, some things that stick out:
Something in A Sketch of Good Communication maybe should be operationalized as an exercise.
Babble has already been turned into an exercise but I think there's room to make exercises that are optimized a bit more for... also teaching relevant other useful skills? It felt the like Babble Challenge series was sort of unnecessarily fun whimsical in a way that was, like, cool if that whimsy was intrinsically motivating. (I think connecting it with your
I would like more introspection/focusing-ish practica that are... tailored more for research? (or, oriented in directions other than... self-help? [my shoulder-Logan doesn't like me labeling the area "self-help" and it doesn't feel quite right to me either but it's what I can quickly come up with])
Inadequate Equilibria could probably turn more exercise-ish although it's also maybe similar to a lot of startup advice that already exists
I think a lot of alignment research stuff should ideally turn into something exercise-y.
Teaching how to Notice Frame Differences, and also generally how to operationalize frames better in various directions. (See Shared Frames Are Capital Investments in Coordination for one aspect, and Meta-rationality and frames). Various Framing Practicums.
Paper-Reading for Gears
Gears-Level Models are Capital Investments (I guess various stuff relating to forming gearsy models)
Integrity and accountability are core parts of rationality

I have a feeling some combination of Radical Probabilism and Infra-Bayesian and other "post-Bayes" epistemologies.
