The Mind Collection Newsletter features 3 Ideas in 2 Minutes, a weekly collection of useful, inspiring and witty ideas. From critical thinking, practical philosophy and mental models to decision-making, problem-solving and storytelling.

Straight to your inbox every Wednesday.

Who are you?

I'm Chris Meyer, a German-Australian writer, analyst and teacher. My background is in intelligence analysis, education, project management, political science and languages. I can also draw on my experience in communications, the military, martial arts and failing at things. You can follow me on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.


What is The Mind Collection?

The Mind Collection is my main creative and analytical outlet. Essentially, this is where I think publicly by writing timeless long-form essays on:

  • critical thinking, mental models and analytical techniques

  • decision-making, problem-solving, reasoning and debate

  • thought experiments, practical philosophy and storytelling.
