To improve my thinking, I’m on a quest to learn the most important mental models.

This page is a collection of my notes throughout this journey, which started on May 16th, 2020.

My aim is to write about these models in the simplest way possible. By doing so, I’m forcing myself to find the very essence of the model so that I’m able to explain it to you in a straight forward manner.

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
– Albert Einstein

I also hope that this page can act as a starting point for building your own latticework of mental models.

Let’s begin.
