First Principles Thinking

Practice of taking any idea, any concept and then stripping it back to basic, fundamental building blocks that are incontestable, free of subjective bias and can be universally accepted as facts.

You do this by questioning every assumption you think you know about a given problem or scenario and challenging current knowledge that is learned, but not essential and doing this over and over until you get to its most basic roots. You will be able to:

- Think inventively.
- Invent new solutions to old problems.
- Change trajectory of creating from iterating on existing thinking to one of genuine innovation.
- Retain and use knowledge effectively because they understand the fundamental building blocks.
