Use mental models to feed your curious brain.

Mental models are big ideas from big disciplines, like business, psychology, science, & engineering. An understanding of the key concepts from these multi-disciplinary topics will teach you to become an independent thinker and help you ask the right questions.

Be Wise. Be like Charlie.

Independent thinking matters!


A mental model is a representation of an external reality inside your head – a kind of cognitive map. The purpose of mental models is to gain and understand knowledge about the world through key multidisciplinary concepts — something schools don't teach. The closer you get your cognitive processes (the way your brain approaches a problem) to reality, the better the decisions you’ll make in life.

Academic structure, by and large, discourages training your brain from a multidisciplinary approach. If you want to be a world-class thinker, you must develop a mind that can jump boundaries from one discipline to another.
