Key Ideas

The Munger Technique

*Just like compound interest multiples one’s savings, improving one’s mind daily, during the best hour of the day, multiplies one’s mental compounding interest.

This ‘mental’ compounding interest advice comes from investor Charlie Munger, in his book University of Berkshire Hathaway.

Investing In the Best Hours Of Your Day

  • The morning hours are usually the best hours of your day, and what you do at that time has the power to change your life.
  • Keep yourself away from distractions and just focus on your morning goals, like meditating, reading, writing or exercising.
  • Checking e-mail, watching the news, or consuming useless (junk) content is the worst thing you can do in the morning.

Don’t Resist

People With High Hopes

People with high hope have a good number of difficult, challenging goals, and a good scorecard of achievement.

They have lower rates of anxiety and depression and greater happiness. They cope well with problems that consume the rest of the world.

Hope = Goals + Agency + Pathways

Instead of wishful thinking, we need to know what we want (specific goals), and have the drive and passion to go towards it (agency) and should be able to generate methods and devices to achieve what we want (pathways).

When we do a sum total of these three, we get hope: Hope= Goals + Agency + Pathways
