Publisher's Summary

What would you do if there was a tool to help you make better decisions in less time? You'd jump at the chance, wouldn't you?

Imagine you're seven years old, and you're at the candy store. You've got 10 cents, and there are two treats you'd like to buy.

The trouble is, together, they cost 15 cents. Spending your money wisely would entail getting the most favorite treats you can afford and being satisfied with the purchase.

Believe it or not, you’d need a mental model to help you make that decision.

Mental models help you filter information in a way that allows you to see things more clearly and make better decisions.

Mental models are also a shortcut to finding the quickest and best route to solve your work-related or personal problems.

This book bundle includes:

  1. Mental Models in a Nutshell: Practical Thinking Frameworks to Amplify Your Decision-Making and Simplify Your Life
  2. Mental Models at Work: The 16 Most Valuable Thinking Tools for Effective Work Performance

Inside you’ll find the tools to simplify complexity and help you create the latticework that serves you best:

  • How mental models declutter your thinking and stimulate decision-making (warning: immediate impact on four cognitive processes!)
  • Three characteristics that help you to spot an excellent mental model
  • How to acquire the skills you need for building your great "latticework" of mental models
  • How to make your mental toolkit resemble a Swiss army knife in five steps
  • What you need to learn, unlearn, and how to re-learn the skills you need at your job with these five strategies
  • How to prioritize your workflow the Warren Buffet way
  • Go beyond post-its and to-do lists with these four mental models to boost productivity
  • Getting “phygital"—why this mindset is critical for the future of work

And much, much more!

Around the world, 43 percent of workers say they feel stressed all the time.

Several factors are driving this, such as the exponential changes in technology, the challenge to get more done in less time, and the need to make increasingly complex decisions with less information in a shorter time.

The beauty of mental models is that their variety is virtually infinite, and they help you come up with solutions for just about any issue.

"Developing the habit of mastering the multiple models that underlie reality is the best thing you could do," according to Charlie Munger, who credits his success to the lifetime cultivation of a "latticework of mental models” on which to frame his decisions.

The problem with the average person's mental models is that most are not designed to handle complexity. And while the conscious use of mental models is possible, they require higher-order thinking skills that few people engage in for various reasons.

But that doesn't have to be you!

Harness the power of mental models! Get the discipline and the mindset you need to simplify your life, supercharge your productivity, and succeed. The first step is to buy now.

Practical approach and actionable insights

The authors don't make mental models complex. Instead, they break down mental models with practical real-world examples, which I think is really usefully for uncovering and understanding the mental models already at use in your own worldview. Additionally, the authors present several mental models that you can immediately incorporate into your own thinking to improve your thinking and likely your life as you make better decisions and execute them with better judgement.
