HOW TO THINK BETTER
The world is complex and interconnected, and we need to understand the big ideas from big disciplines, in order to have a whole map of the reality to be able to make better decisions.
Critical thinking has to be based on going to the fundamental ideas, to the mental models.
Mental models are the most important ideas of each science: philosophy, mathematics, physics, statistics, engineering, chemistry, biology, psychology, economics and history.
You need to know and connect them.
These models do not tell you what you think, rather they teach you how to think, and encourage you to think critically.
Here are some examples of how mental models will improve your life:
- Do you want to create a successful business?
Leverage, Niches and Scale models will guide you.
- Do you want to be happy, achieve more and suffer less?
Stoicism, Anti-fragility and Resilience give you the vision and strength you need.
- Do you want to know why you shouldn’t believe what you see on Instagram?
Plato’s Cave metaphor will give you the answer.
- Do you want to boost your professional career?
Take a look at the Incentives mental model.
- Do you want to make rational decisions?
