Episode Transcript


Welcome to this week's episode of the Monday Morning Minute.

Over the last few episodes we've looked at some of the differences between fixed and growth mindset thinking.

In today's episode, let's look at how each views effort.

Fixed and Growth mindset people have a very different world view on the concept of talent.  

The fixed mindset is firmly of the opinion that talent is -  fixed.  You've either got it or you haven't.  End of story.

When developing new skills, if it doesn't come easy to them, they believe any effort to do so is pointless.

So they don't bother.  They stay within their comfort zone and stick with what comes natural to them

Growth mindset people however believe they can develop any skill through consistent and persistent effort.  

It might not come as easy to them as it does to others, but they persist UNTIL they can do it.

Growth mindset people know that effort is the path to mastery and willingly develop new skills.

So when you're faced with learning something new - do you put the effort in?

Until next week
