|I have two sons, and I want them to grow up with useful mental frameworks about the world. What mental models have you come to believe that you wish you had adopted earlier?|
Here are three I've been contemplating.
1) When I fail at something, it is not an indictment of my moral being. On the contrary, failures make me a better person.
2)My formal education may incentivize me to find correct answers to solvable problems. But I will explore problems that don’t have an answer, since these are the ones that change society.
3)Curiosity is the foundation of understanding. When I disagree with someone, I will seek to understand rather than attack.
