What Got You There with Sean DeLaney


May 22, 2019

First Principles otherwise known as “reasoning from first principles” is the idea of breaking down complicated problems into basic elements and then reassemble them from the ground up. This strategy helps you cut through confusion and have a true understanding and improve your decision making process. People such as Aristotle and Elon Musk use First Principles. Aristotle defined them as “the first basis from which a thing is known”. By using first principles to reason we remove assumptions and leave only the essentials. By only having the essentials it allows us to understand how relying on analogy can send us down the wrong path.
