What caught my attention on week 29 of 2020.
First thing first. I revisited this chat over a podcast I was co-hosting. Topic: from having a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. Bottom line: to grow it starts with starting and our belief to grow. To be the master of our own life.
Tips to get started:
- Explore topics to nurture and trigger your curiosity. Read. Watch. Hear. Draw. At large. Start with small steps. Take it from there.
- JDI. Just try.
How about the growth mindset of humans and machines?
“wouldn’t it be fascinating to take Carol Dweck’s fixed mindset/growth mindset and overlay it on the human and machine and, well, see how it all works together? ok. it would be fascinating to me.” — @BruceMcTague
Beyond the growth mindset.
“Growth mindset matters, but over-adopting labels – especially in personality evaluation – is succumbing to a fixed mindset. Labeling can influence the way you view your past as well as what you expect of yourself in the future.” https://whitneyjohnson.com/benjamin-hardy-personality — @johnsonwhitney
On working on ourselves.
“Everything we do and everything we feel contributes towards answering the unasked question: who are we? Ultimately? Really?
Understand that. There is nothing about you that is hidden from you.” — @DavidAmerland
When ready one can engage with one community at a time.
“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” — Coretta Scott King
As well with a network:
“#growthmindset: Surround yourself with people who do things better and different from you. #leadership #innovation” — @JorgeBarba
Does it start with sharing?
“A learning culture consists of a community of workers instilled with a ‘growth mindset.’ People not only want to learn and apply what they’ve learned to help their organization, they also feel compelled to share their knowledge with others.” — Karen Hebert-Maccaro
“Which steps will you take this weekend? Where could they lead you?” — @changingview
