Hi Guys

I wanted to share with the forum and with who is interested a project that I'm doing on my week ends, I was spending couple of hours in studying models and mental bias and how to defuse them.
But I noticed that the easiest way to do so, is to think like a Giant, or even better, to think like someone that has choose the right answer majority of the times.
Why study all the over 200 mental bias and effects while you can bring home 80% of the value with 5 key points from Charlie Munger?
I'm adding the lessons I learned from the PRESENT giants and from the PAST ones.
NOTE: I'm a huge believer in the stoic philosophy so in the future, I might go a little bit too much Greco-Roman here, history lovers are welcome.

You will see that a lot of successful people, will say the same thing but with different words.

I will post the first one I have in my excel, if you would like to hear more, just say so or contribute :)

Interesting. Looking forward to more of your sentiments towards Stoicism. I read a bit of the Hortensius but that was ages ago. I love antique philosophy albeit I don't gravitate too much towards dualistic thought.

Thank you @Anothersimon , although I'm fond of Stoicism, not really into the philosophical nature of the thought, but more into the practical and "cynical" (lol at the pun) aspect of it, what I can use in my life to build a robust infrastructure to wrap my brain around it.
