What Are Mental Models

I first stumbled on mental models when I was reading the work of Charlie Munger, the self-made billionaire partner of Warren Buffett. It’s his secret weapon for making decisions, succeeding in business, and choosing winning investments. I’ve since learned that other self-made billionaires like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Ray Dalio use mental models as well. You can think of a mental model simply as: “The way you think that things work in a particular domain.” It’s the idea that you have about how something works. If your model is bad, then your thinking is bad. If your model is accurate, then your thinking (and decision-making, and prediction ability) is far more accurate. It’s that simple.

The Power Of Mental Models

My name is Michael Simmons, and my favorite thing to do in the world is to learn, apply what I learn to get a result, and then teach others so they get the same result. That's why, throughout my whole career, I've read thousands of books and started education companies that have generated millions of dollars in revenue and impacted millions of people.

Hey, Michael here! Some people collect shoes. Others collect cars. I collect mental models :)

The more that I learned and used mental models in my thinking, decision making, writing, business… and personal life… the more I realized that I had discovered a secret mental weapon.
