Notion has become my second brain. I capture every bit of information, ideas, and reflections in my topic forest. This forest has evolved over the years and become indispensable to my daily writing and creation.

I stumbled upon Poor Charlie’s Almanack in high school and it has certainly changed the way I see the world. It inspired me to create my own mental models and deconstruct complex worldview into basic unit of knowledge. Munger’s business partner Warren Buffett writes:
From 1733 to 1758, Ben Franklin dispensed useful and timeless advice through Poor Richard’s Almanack. Among the virtues extolled were thrift, duty, hard work, and simplicity. Subsequently, two centuries went by during which Ben’s thoughts on these subjects were regarded as the last word. Then Charlie Munger stepped forth.
Productivity Hacks
Have you ever been overwhelmed by the seemingly never-ending to-do list? Instead of adding another item to the list, try subtraction. Start a not-to-do list to put first things first. One item on my not-to-do list is to not write applications. This awareness saves me so much time and helps me focus on things that truly matter.
If you already have a not-to-do list, try a to-learn list. This practice enables me to constantly rewire my brain and approach anything with beginner’s mindset.
