Hello, Professional Learning Online, Community members. If you haven't seen Carol Dweck's talk on growth mindset, do watch it. It's less than 10 minutes long. I can imagine how much more I'd have been able to achieve if someone took me aside as a young person and told me "It's okay to fail because you learn more".
I'm also reminded of this wonderful and inspirational talk from Reshma Saujani - Teach girls bravery, not perfection. We shouldn't insist on perfection from both girls and boys. Reaching for the often unobtainable goal of perfection is one of the most debilitating tortures we can subject ourselves to.
What do you think? Any thoughts on either of these videos? Do share in the comments below.
