Columbus Rationality

This week's topic: Setting and Achieving Goals, presented by Gleb Tsipursky.

What is the most rational way to set and achieve your goals? In this workshop, we will explore this question through a three-pronged approach. First, we will discuss how to match your overarching values to your long-term goals. Next, we will figure out what are the best strategies to help you connect these long-term goals to the actions that you take in your everyday life. Finally, we will consider how you can best assess and improve your goal achievement, both by self-monitoring and reassessing, and by creating structures of support and accountability.

Gleb Tsipursky, whose parents emigrated from the former USSR when he was 10, grew up in Brooklyn, NY, lived in Boston, MA, and in Chapel Hill, NC, before moving to Central Ohio to take up a tenure-track professorship at The Ohio State University, History Department, Newark Campus. Active in the Humanist Community of Central Ohio and the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus, he has a deep and abiding interest in evidence-based practices on how to live a happy, fulfilling, and flourishing life. He resides in Westerville with his wife, Agnes Vishnevkin, and two cats, and he enjoys taking nature walks and stimulating discussions. For more information, see his website,

Rationality is about the science of reasoning, and acting effectively to meet your goals. Each meetup we will hold a workshop on a relevant topic. Topics are posted about a week in advance.

Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is some swearing and discussion of mature issues.
