I have a fairly simple objective: I want to go to bed each night smarter than when I woke up. I also want to live a meaningful life and become a better person. I’m not smart enough to figure out everything myself, so I try to master the best of what other people have already figured out. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?
The best way to do this is to read a lot. And so I make friends with the eminent dead.
Farnam Street helps me organize, connect, and pontificate on some of what I’m learning across multiple disciplines.
