Clever And Mistake-Free

In “The 3 rules of mindsets”, Daniel Pink provides these examples in order to contrast fixed minded thinkers with growth minded thinkers:

  • Fixed mindset: Look clever at all costs.
  • Growth mindset: Learn, learn, learn.
  • Fixed mindset: It should come naturally.
  • Growth mindset: Work hard, effort is key.
  • Fixed mindset: Hide your mistakes and conceal your deficiencies.
  • Growth mindset: Capitalize on your mistakes and confront your deficiencies.

I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly struggling against the “Look clever at all costs” and “Hide your mistakes..” fixed mindset maladies. It’s easy to criticize the “environment” for these shortcomings, but ultimately it’s a personal ego battle, no?
