ideas for implementing ideas using curated lists to spark implementation ideas
idea feedback loops!
read down the lists inside the lists, when you find yourself pausing, when you find yourself wondering, "What if..." that's your idea for implementing ideas!
1. Charlie Munger's Mental Models
You really just can't beat Munger's list coming, going or going round again
Scan the chapter list and when you find yourself pausing, when you find yourself wondering, "What if..." there's your implementation idea!
2. Scott Page's books on Modeling and his Coursera course on modeling
The chapters make up the list of models. The models are implementation ideas and the simplified math behind simple models is a great insight
3. The Princeton Book of Mathematics
a huge book of implementation ideas: Geometry? Algebra? Calculus? Set Theory (infinities on infinities is interesting for thinking of scale)
4. Scott Page's book on Diversity
great for insights on assembling teams (and maybe how to curate multiple diverse implementations)
5. The Future: Ray Dalio's Changing World Order
implementations that take the future into account are magic
use the chapter list as your lidea list
6. The Past: The Lessons of History by Will and Ariel Durant
context and ideas/lessons from the past for implementations
use the chapter list as an lidea list
7. Any book of poetry
such as David Whyte's House of Belonging, or his Ted talk
poetry is unique because the spaces between the words allow us to pour ourselves uniquely in and magic and the mood for pondering comes out
David Whyte, A Lyrical Bridge Between Past, Present and Future
8. Creative Whack Pack for a more tactile idea implementation list
A deck of cards designed to spur ideas
