            Farnham Street’s Brain Food is one of the very thoughtful blogs I turn to for interesting approaches to personal development. I have posted from his mental models series before, but this post is where you should begin if you are serious about using mental models in your daily life. All of us use them, but we are often not fully aware that we are doing this. This is the best introduction to mental models I have found. Adapt the Farnham Street Latticework of Mental Models in your life.
