How to Improve at Anything Using the Plus-Equal-Minus Method

“The simple mantra, ‘I know nothing’ has helped me so many times in the past seven years. I owe any success to those simple three words: I. Know. Nothing.”

Here’s a simple formula you can use to get better at anything you choose.

James Altucher explains how he applies this formula to everything in his lifeand how it helps him with investing, leadership, friendship, negotiations, and even romantic relationships.
