The life bug hunt

Today I discovered Hammertime, which is a whole self improvement/rationality thing I won’t get into here. But I especially like this part:

Day 1: Bug Hunt

A bug is anything in life that needs improvement. Even if something is going well, if you can imagine it going better, there’s a bug.

On the first day of Hammertime, we will scour our lives with a fine-toothed comb to find as many bugs as possible. A comprehensive bug list will provide the raw material on which we practice every other rationality technique. For the first cycle of Bug Hunt, look for small, concrete bugs. The whole exercise should take a bit over an hour.

The rest of the post has a walkthrough with categories to trigger thoughts. It’s pretty great. I’ll give it a try and post the bugs I can think of here.
