Project Questions & Models

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“I LOVE mental models. 

When you think that, until a few years ago, I hadn’t even heard of the concept. Now, if I am to be remembered for anything in this life, I think it will have something to do with mental models.”

“Where did you learn it from?”

“Shane Parrish, from Farnam Street, in an article about Charlie Munger [<link]. 

We encounter a lot of ideas throughout our lives; but only a handful of those profoundly change us.” 

“One might argue that the very point of reading wide is discovering those treasures.”

“That article planted a beautiful seed in my mind which has been growing ever since.

I hadn’t heard of Charlie Munger before that article either, and he’s now one of my Heroes, one of the people I look up to most.”

“What stage is the seedling at now?”

“It’s turned into an actual tree – a mind-map. 

An important (maybe lifelong) project of mine is collecting, organizing and creating models. Just like the Questions-Templates project [<link; medium length] I told you about, I add them to an ever growing mind-map.”

“What if you combined the two mind-maps into one?

You can have a single project called Questions & Models.”¬†

“That’s a brilliant idea!

I’ll do just that.”

Project Questions & Models

“Glad to be of assistance.

How are you managing all those models. Aren’t there too many of them?”

“I’m focusing mostly on those that have practical application. The tools I can play with, and make me a better Thinker.”
