Do you spend countless hours reading, listening to podcasts, and watching informative videos… only to still feel like you’re winging it most of the time?

The way you think determines everything:

  • How you see the world
  • How you see yourself
  • How you process new information
  • How you approach challenges and opportunities that come your way
Most people try to improve their thinking by consuming more information.

They spend countless hours reading great books, listening to smart podcasts, and watching fascinating videos, only to end up in the same place. They are surrounded by information, but they don’t feel like that information is translating into better thinking and better results.

At the end of the day, they still feel like they’re winging it.

Does that sound familiar?​

Mentals models are the way you understand a complex world. When you have the right models, and the latticework to use them, they help you simplify that complexity in a way that turns information into true learning and practical action.

But few people end up with the right models by default. Your brain forms these models without you even knowing it — and often creates suboptimal structures for processing all the information you consume on a daily basis.

Fortunately, there’s a solution. You can consciously and deliberately teach yourself to think differently — to develop new mental models that help you process new information, navigate paths of inquiry, and chart courses of action to solve problems and improve your outcomes.
