Spend each day trying to be a little wiser than you were when you woke up. Discharge your duties faithfully and well. Systematically you get ahead, but not necessarily in fast spurts.
Nevertheless, you build discipline by preparing for fast spurts. Slug it out one inch at a time, day by day. At the end of the day, if you live long enough, most people get what they deserve.

—  Charlie Munger

That is what this blog is about.

Attempting to stand on the shoulders of those who have charged ahead of us and returned to share what they learned so that we might try to wake up each day a little wiser than before. Learning lessons from history in order to not repeat mistakes already made while applying the best solutions to the problems that already have been solved.

In this way, we might hope to make things better than they are for more than only ourselves. But the first steps start with improving yourself. And that is not easy. It is humbling. And it takes a long time. It even takes a long time for the historical greats. But time and effort were not an excuse for them, and it shouldn’t be for us.
