would like to listen it again, so to absorb the idea
Understand human relation need to be maintained from time to time, not perfect or none miracle.
about "things and skills can be changed and should be maintained from time to time". it's related to Buddhism's idea of "Anicca", perfect is Idea, all the phenomenon will change and can be changed, so we should put effort and maintain the what we want to maintain.
Dweck is on to something and this book is very useful. I'd highly recommend it for teachers and parents. Everyone should work towards a growth mindset and spot when we aren't in it.
On the downside I think she's cramming too many traits and beliefs into a simplified world. I think she confuses grit, an equally admirable characteristic, with her growth mindset.
I'd also take her history lessons with a grain of salt. Edison wasn't any kind of team player but she bends history to make points. That's a slippery disservice to her readers.
I guess you're only aloud one point in a book like this but there are more than two characteristics at play in the hearts and minds of mankind.
I'd highly recommend the book.
Carol Dweck develops a simple and straightforward methodology to help people with motivation problems. she argues that a fixed mindset hinders you. causes you to remain fixed in place. unable to confront fears and challanges. while a growth mindset, allows you to enjoy and appreciate challange. using challange to grow into stronger and better people.
a good book. but she has one.and only one point to make. if it helps to understand it in different contexts then read the whole book. there is never any part that is bad and uninformative. but she is just.driving home her one solution to all social problems.
I appreciated the way it challenged me to look at the mindset I operated out of.
The book was overloaded with case studies and stories that. It could have been slimmed down and the same point would have been made.
The narration did match the pace of the book.
This is not a book I would to listen to in one sitting.
A must read for all those who want to achieve more! I had a hard time at first with the narrators voice but used to speed to make work. After reading this book, you will look at everything differently
One of my top books. This is a must-read for any parent coach, teacher manager or entrepreneur. Other books have talked about changing the way that you think to be successful, however this addressed working with your kids and employees to help you AND them grow
This is a book with a powerful concept, assess and adjust your mindset. Dr. Dweck presents the concepts of the fixed and growth mindsets. She illustrates the explanation of each at work, in athletics, in the classroom, and at home with both child and spouse. Why I rate this book so high is it is understandable and she makes it extremely practical with clear actions and activities to move one towards a growth mindset. One of the most powerful points to me though it was a small section towards the end is how betrayal and hurt can move us back into a fixed mindset. This will be required reading in my leadership trainings. Thank you Dr. Dweck and I will put my best efforts into continuing to grow and help others grow too.
I have been waiting my whole life for this and I didn't even know it.
