💪A thread on amazing Twitter threads 😍👇
In the process of revamping my #Twitter profile (dormant earlier), I have come to appreciate the wonderful underutilized platform it is!
Some threads contain crisp knowledge capsules that can help many. Starting 1 on such curated content
1. I largely rely on this: threadreaderapp.com to find content
2. What I wish to share is what coincides largely with my interests- #Learning, #Investing, #Behavioralpsychology (#mentalmodels, #bias, etc), #Businessbooks, Industry insights/case studies, Life experiences, etc
3/n
While it will be difficult to structure the order of content here, I will try to block threads by category (as noted above & more). Feel free to comment with any good thread that you would have come across. Cumulative learning always helps.
#vicariouslearning
4/n The 1st thread is a wonderful experience of @ryanstephens titled
"Why I'm probably about to change the way I use Twitter." It's apt that I start with this as it largely coincides with the core purpose of this thread- how to learn more using Twitter
5/n. The second thread is a succinct summary (penned by @BrentBeshore) of the much acclaimed book "Skin in the game" by one of the best thinkers (anti?) of our times, Nassim N. Taleb.
Absolutely brilliant! Worth multiple reads to imbibe it.

3rd thread is on #mentalmodels
To me, it's where the fields of Finance, Investing & Human Psychology intersect. 2 best resources to know more are @farnamstreet's bit.ly/2GgGfz7 & James's bit.ly/2w3UCVI

"Be the last to monopolize a market, but don’t be the first to innovate"

The 4th thread is called "INCREASING your CHANCES of STARTUP SUCCESS" (Link: bit.ly/2r82HUE) by @paraschopra (invertedpassion.com)- very interesting take on building a new business in India

5th thread: Probably my fav.- a heartwarming story of #hope & #compassion
@vinayakkm's chance talk with an auto driver on his struggle to support his childrens' TT talent caught the attention of @bhogleharsha & ended up in a successful fundme campaign.

10th thread: Another one from @BrentBeshore titled “What are the ten biggest ideas that changed your life?”
Nothing starkly new but a good compilation with examples to understand the ideas better.

14/n
11th: @Douglas9162's excellent summary titled "100 things I learnt from 'Seeking Wisdom: from Darwin to Munger" by #Peterbevelin
Many learning enthusiasts vouch by this book, so expect to keep coming back to this. Enjoy!

As I was glancing @Douglas9162's page, I realized it is a goldmine of knowledge. Sharing his thread of compilation of his amazing book summary threads on my thread (Quite a #tweetception). Deserves some time.

Thread #15: On greed, fear & other emotions of a newbie #investor(@nnboogie)

"It’s about identifying what good books are to you. Different books speak to diff. people. Even if you don’t remember all lines or passages, at some deep level it becomes a part of your psyche"
Came across @naval via @axamsa- what a gem!

"I learned how to make money because it was a necessity. After it stopped being one, I stopped caring about it. Fundamentally, I’m much more interested in solving problems than I am in making money." ~ @naval

"Today the zone stands as a testament to human destruction, a chilling reminder of the cost of war, the resiliency of nature & its power to overcome our mistakes"

Brilliant story board on the healing power of Nature in the face of human adversity.

Check out this thread on how to carry out Critical analysis of sugar-coated stories to avoid falling into the narrative #fallacy trap so common these days. Coming straight from a practitioner @paraschopra's experience makes it 'sweeter'
