It's been 6 months since we last did this - how are your goals going? Note that the time is an hour later than usual.

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 fulfil, 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.
