The Matter of Mindset
The way in which you approach tasks and learning says a great deal about your mindset. It's possible that you have head about Carol Dweck and her research on mindset. Have you heard of a growth mindset? How about a fixed mindset?
- A fixed mindset is when you believe your intelligence is fixed, that you may not continue to grow and learn. This can lead to many obstacles in learning.
- A growth mindset is when you believe your intelligence will continue to grow. Despite the challenges you face, the effort and struggle will actually make you smarter. In this case, you are more willing to take on tasks where initial success is not guaranteed.
Do YOU have grit? Check out this TED Talk below!
Is the key to success our abilities alone? Or, is it a combination of our abilities, passion, and perseverance?
Ask yourself... Do you have a growth mindset? How do you follow through on your commitments? Do you live life like a marathon or a sprint?
Grit: a short, yet powerful word.
