This Master Key to Personal Development

For many years, scientists and common folk alike believed that the brain was “fixed”.

Children were considered new opportunities to mold and shape into specific pieces.

People who had strokes, personality problems and all other sorts of neural defects were considered lost causes.

Just medicate them, there’s nothing more we can do.

Even today, many people think the elderly are a lost cause.

The Secret to Creative Imagination and Effective Thinking

“You’ve got to hang experience on a latticework of models in your head. What are the models? Well, the first rule is that you’ve got to have multiple models — because if you just have one or two that you’re using, the nature of human psychology is such that you’ll torture reality so that it fits your models, or at least you’ll think it does” – Charlie Munger
