'Increase your team's problem-solving toolbox by equipping them with new Mental Models in every module"

'I basically load my head full of mental models."

- Naval Ravikant

'The things best to know are first principles and causes, but these things are perhaps the most difficult for men to grasp, for they are farthest removed from the senses."

- Aristotle

'Don’t just follow the trend. You may have heard me say that it’s good to think in terms of the physics approach of first principles. Which is, rather than reasoning by analogy, you boil things down to the most fundamental truths you can imagine and you reason up from there."

- Elon Musk

“You need a different checklist and different mental models for different companies. I can never make it easy by saying, 'Here are three things.' You have to derive it yourself to ingrain it in your head for the rest of your life.”

- Charlie Munger

“Objective leaders identify their unproductive mental models and tweak them for greater effectiveness.”

- Elizabeth Thornton

“You can’t improve if you don’t know what you’re doing wrong.”

- Shane Parrish

“What separates good thinkers from great thinkers is:
1) The number of mental models at their disposal;
2) The accuracy of those models; and
3) How quickly they update them when they're wrong.”

- Elizabeth Thornton
