Gunung.org was founded in 2018 with the goal of promoting high level thinking skills to as wide a readership as possible and helping companies and individuals use critical thinking and creative problem solving as a means to correct common cognitive mistakes, overcome challenges and reach their full potential. This covers a complex and wide range of areas but perhaps the core is good decision making. We believe that how to make good decisions for good reasons ought to be central to all education and training, including self-education.
The name ‘gunung’ means ‘mountain’ in Indonesian and Malay, and indeed many of our own best ideas come to us as we hike in the mountains, gain new perspectives and have time to reflect on the matters of our day-to-day lives back down below in the cities and towns.
