One Level Higher

One Level Higher is a Mental Model that tries to go to a higher level of abstraction.

Ask yourself "Am I optimizing a cog or the entire machine?". Try to optimize the largest system you have access to rather than smaller components of the system.

Is it higher-leverage to optimize a level above the one I'm focused on?
