👩‍🏫The Wisdom Project 101

#101

Hey folks 👋

How’s it going?

Welcome to Wisdom Letter #101.

This email will take less than 2 minutes to read.

Plenty of new people have joined us since last week.

So we thought this is a good time to do a 101 post.

Try to explain the basics of what you can expect from us going forward.

A kind of an intro to The Wisdom Project.

And some samples of content you can expect in weekly wisdom letters.

Let’s go.

Our goal with this project is to find ways to think better and live better!


Think Better🧠

Making good decisions in life is a skill.

Just like any skill, it gets better with practice and with the right tools.

The number one tool we use to make better decisions is our brain.

So our focus is on understanding our brain better, and on overcoming its limitations.

For that, we write posts like -

  1. What Are Mental Models & Why Are They Important

  2. The 5 Most Important Cognitive Biases Holding You Back

  3. Leveraging Pareto’s principle

  4. 📚What books are you reading?


Live Better 😇

This is a broader topic.

We try to cover areas like happiness, purpose, the meaning of life.

At a practical level, we also cover stuff like personal finance and habit building.

For that, you can find posts like -

  1. 3 Habits for Better Wealth

  2. The Wisdom of Atomic Habits

  3. How do you measure wealth?💰


Apart from this, sometimes we also share life updates 🤗
