Publisher's Summary

The world's greatest problem-solvers, forecasters, and decision-makers all rely on a set of frameworks and shortcuts that help them cut through complexity and separate good ideas from bad ones.

Mental models are like giving a treasure map to someone lost in the woods. They provide instant understanding, context, and most importantly, a path to the end destination.

How can mental models help you? Well, here are just a few examples....

  • If you've ever been overwhelmed by a to-do list that's grown too long, maybe you need the Eisenhower Decision Matrix to help you prioritize.
  • Use the 5 Whys model to better understand people's motivations or get to the root cause of a problem.
  • Before concluding that your colleague who messes up your projects is out to sabotage you, consider Hanlon's Razor for an alternative explanation.
  • Ever sat through a bad movie just because you paid a lot for the ticket? You might be falling prey to Sunk Cost Fallacy.
  • Set up Forcing Functions, like standing meeting or deadlines, to help grease the wheels for changes you want to occur.

So, the next time you find yourself faced with a difficult decision or just trying to understand a complex situation, let Super Thinking upgrade your brain with mental models.

The goal of this book is helping you understand how your brain works and help you reprogram your own successful mindset. This will lead you to the life you really want by releasing your mental breaks.

You will learn:

  • What is a mental model
  • Which mental models are successful
  • Which techniques can help you being more productive
  • Set your mind for happiness.
  • Practice your self-discipline to increase your self-esteem.

This book has examples and tools you can use in your everyday life, so you can work on the things that really matter to achieve success and happiness in your life. You can learn all the things you will need,
