Success Secrets: Marc Andreessen on Charlie Munger

I have devoted an entire category on this blog to the thought of billionaire Charlie Munger. Munger's goals, int his many speeches and writings, often concerns the psychological behavior of humans, which, when understood, leads to success in business and other areas of life. His thought is truly deep, and so far above the "basics" of achievement skills, it might fall into a separate category, perhaps "Meta-Success".

It is truly gratifying to see Marc Andreessen's post: The Psychology of Entrepreneurial Misjudgment, Part1: biases 1-6 on his blog recently. Andreesson generously gives the reader his "take" on Munger's classic "The Psychology of Human Misjudgment". Andreesson, founder of Mosaic, Netscape, Ning, etc has been extraordinarily successful, and, from this post, it is easy to see why: he is able to abstract individual experiences into larger conceptual frameworks. This post is an extraordinary read, and I hope he will go on to discuss all 25 of Munger's principles. I have created a digest of the principles here.
