My name is Dan Petrov. I am a writer, reader, lawyer, and business owner with the simple goal of making each day better than the last.

I write about the “things behind the things” in life.  I’m interested in the parts of life that are hidden in plain sight but that we often miss.  Things like how our minds work, how the world works, and how we make decisions both good and bad.  I try to explore philosophy, cognitive tools and models, and philosophical insights that I have drawn from great thinkers that help me improve in life.

This a place to learn new things and draw lessons from different spheres of thinking.  I often draw upon work of great minds that have struggled with life’s challenges and found paths of insight.  My goal is to build a community where I can share some of the lessons I’ve learned.  Hopefully you explore and find something of value.

My views on this blog are my own and do not reflect those of anyone else.
