What’s Your Mindset?

I’m studying Mindset: The New Pschology of Success. Dr Carol Dweck wrote the book based on her exhaustive scientific studies. Her professional psychology studies are the most cited in the world, making her a source worth listening to.

I’ve read oodles of self-help books over the years, and even wrote one, but have rarely encountered such strongly useful information so simply explained. I’ve covered the basics of the growth mindset in my Construction Knowledge People Skills, but would like to provide better on this mindset concept.

Therefore, I’m preparing to teach a course on Mindsets that I’ll video tape and post on this site. It will be free and I hope you find it useful. If you do, I’ll cover more topics that way.

On another subject, Beautiful Wife and I went to see Burn After Reading last night, the new Coen Brothers movie that’s just been released. BW and I loved the movie, laughing our way through all the weirdness and unexpected turns. If you want to go out and laugh and not think too much, go see it. We give two thumbs up.
