Fixed vs. Growth Mindsets

Carol Dweck has great insights on psychology, which Michael Graham Richard summarizes here.

Essentially you can view intelligence as…

A. static

OR

B.something that can be trained and improved

If you are more inclined to chose answer B, you’ll be much more successful. Sure, you might worry you’ll fail more, but as Peter Drucker said, “Those who take risks typically fail about twice a year, and those who don’t take risks fail about twice a year.”
