Improving the world in ambitious ways takes skill and mental acuity, so personal capacity-building may be one of the best ways to help the world in the long-run. The Center for Applied Rationality offers regular workshops for those most dedicated to improving the world, to help them build a personal improvement toolset. They "care about the long-term future, and … suspect thinking skills, dialogue skills, and the social fabric to support them may be key to making that pivot a good one."

If you would like to improve your productivity and the accuracy of your beliefs, check out their FAQ and list of upcoming workshops.
