Bakadesuyo on Self-Improvement

Bakadesuyo, one of my favorite blogs, regularly posts the results of studies dedicated to assessing self-improvement. A sampling:
How to trick yourself into eating less food and spending less money: (hint - partition into smaller units!)
How to improve your math skills (speak out loud, and draw it!):
How to improve your vision (play video games...):
How to make accurate predictions of how long something will take (ask someone how long similar projects have taken in the past, and ignore your response):
How to praise your child in a way that makes you a good parent (praise their efforts, not their innate attributes):
How to learn (take a very challenging test - you remember more than just studying or taking easier tests)
