Master the best of what others have already figured out.

I rarely have original thoughts. I'm guessing the same is true for you.

So, rather than always sharing MY thoughts, I strive to weave in ideas from those who are more qualified. And along with that, I want to begin sharing those people directly with you.

I am a firm believer that we are the sum of our inputs. Sadly, many of my previous inputs were not the best. This resulted in my thinking not being the best either.

So, every week, I will share someone you should follow and why. 

Today I want to share with you, Shane Parrish. 

Who is he? Shane is the founder of Farnam Street Media and the CEO of Syrus Partners, a private investment company. 

He hosts the podcast The Knowledge Project, which is the best podcast for improving how you think. Here's a link:

Why should you listen to him? Shane embodies my core message of sharing the best of what others think. He interviews some of the best thinkers and draws out their highest level of insights. The bio for his podcast is, "Master the best of what other people have already figured out." 
Subscribe to his podcast if you want to level up your thinking, mental models, and the way you see the world. I wish I would have years ago.
That's it.
As always, send me anyone you think I should be following to improve my thinking in any area of life.

Have a great weekend, friend!
