100 MENTAL MODELS
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.
You should think multidisciplinary, the way of the greatest in history:
The first rule is that you can't really know anything if you just remember isolated facts and try and bang 'em back. If the facts don't hang together on a latticework of theory, you don't have them in a usable form.
I basically load my head full of mental models.
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.
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.
If our small minds, for some convenience, divide this universe, into parts—physics, biology, geology, astronomy, psychology, and so on—remember that nature does not know it!
Specialization is for insects.
—Robert A. Heinlein

You have to learn all the big ideas in the key disciplines in a way that they're in a mental latticework in your head and you automatically use them for the rest of your life.
If you do that, I solemnly promise you that one day you'll be walking down the street and you'll look to your right and left and you'll think "my heavenly days, I'm now one of the few competent people in my whole age cohort."
If you don't do it, many of the brightest of you will live in the middle ranks or in the shallows.
