Publisher's Summary

Do you find it increasingly difficult to step out of your comfort zone or think outside of the box?

Do you constantly question your decision making?

Or do you want to become more flexible and open-minded in all areas of your life?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, this guide will change your life for the better.

Are you ready to begin?

Mental models are natural and help us make decisions, assess situations, and conserve our energy.

But sometimes those models turn into a trap that hurts your mental game, rather than helps it.

Our beliefs, ideas, values, perceptions, and experiences change over time, so shouldn’t the structures in our mind also evolve?

This guide teaches you how to utilize those mental models when it is appropriate but question when and how you use them when they trap you in.

It’s time to break apart and rebuild the maps you have created in your mind.

Based on psychological research, this guide reveals the different ways we think, such as emotionally, analytically, and logically, and it teaches you how to use each mindset when making decisions.

Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky’s 1973 research on “Judgement Under Certainty: Biases and Heuristics” through the Oregon Research Institute provides foundational evidence for us.

They show how mental models interfere with humans’ ability to gather new information and build patterns of thought, making it difficult to assess new problems and decisions.

With this guide, you’ll discover:

  • Concrete strategies, broken into steps, for how to break apart the maps and structures in your mind
  • The triggers and signs for when mental models are engaging and trapping you
  • Why your prejudices and stereotypes are hurting you more than you think
  • The absolute worst thing you are doing that is stopping your open-mindedness
  • The tools you need to up your game and be more successful at work
  • How to stop limiting yourself and try new things without fear!
  • Why your confidence may actually be hurting your work and social life, and how to take it to the next level!
  • How to feel great about your decision-making process so you don’t live with regret!

Just like your body changes and you learn to care for it over time, does it not make sense to grow and develop your decision-making skills and mental game, too?

Imagine how the rest of your life will wildly improve and change once you free yourself from the out-of-date structures of your mind!

Believe the hype on this one.

If you allow this book to change the way you learn, then this book is easily worth 20x the cover price for the keys and tools Horsley provides you with because you'll finally be able to overcome that old adage that claims that we only use about 10% of our brains.

I was astounded by the quality and presentation of the material in this audiobook. Not only did I find myself recommending it before I finished it, but I will also listen to it again and referencing it frequently until I have all the models easily at hand for my use. Bravo! Extremely well done!

Great compilation of mental models and thinking strategies for the decisions we come across in our lives. The range is impressive, and so is the way easy to understand language and application. Examples are also extremely helpful.

Since I'm an ongoing college alumnus, a ton of the substance I've just been ambiguously acquainted with so I've discovered a ton of intriguing bits of knowledge. Would suggest.

A good book but could do with more detail

Joseph Fowler's books on mental models are generally good but there's a lot of repetition as you go from one book to another. In the end you are left feeling you aren't getting your money's worth since the books aren't cheap. Nevertheless the material on offer is useful and is a good introduction to the topic of mental models.
