Not Yet

Carol Dweck: The Power of Believing that You Can Improve

Since I listened to this talk last week, I have been careful to say ‘not yet’, instead of ‘no’.  It amazing how a small change in language can change my mindset, my beliefs, and my behaviour.

What a powerful word.

  1. What a great TEDtalk! I find it very exciting that we can change our mindset and grow our intelligence and help our students do the same. What an opportunity! A quick Google search lead me to Carol Dweck’s book on the topic, which looks like a great resource as well.
    Thanks for posting this, and you have a great blog here!
