Problem Solving With A Better Mindset

Carol Dweck’s Growth Mindset is something worth cultivating. The Presentations on the Brainology site are a good introduction.

The exec summary is that our brains grow thru practice ( ie effort ). The more you exersize your brain the smarter you will get. ( It’s the 10,000 hours mentioned in Gladwell’s Outliers that count. ) The second point is that if you need be focussed on “Process” (Learning thru effort) vs “Results” (The score & talent ). It doesn’t matter how much talent you have unless you’re prepared to work hard. Sounds a lot like golf guru Bob Rotella doesn’t it.

The only bad thing about this book is that I often found myself remembering the times I’ve been stuck in a “fixed mindset” 😦
