COLLECTIONS

Sometimes I need to get up to speed on a topic or learn something quickly. It's not about being an expert on absolutely everything, but rather to be able to talk confidently about a subject. My framework for doing this is to create a set of three books so I can:

  1. Understand the philosophy or background,
  2. Research the implications or deep-dive something specific, and
  3. Create and actionable game plan.
