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.

In this way, we might hope to make things better than they are for more than just us.

But it starts with improving you. And that is not easy. It is humbling. And it takes a long time. It even takes a long time for the best among us. But that wasn’t an excuse for them, and it shouldn’t be for us.
