Have you ever wanted to get better at something and don't want to admit it to yourself? One of those things for me is math. I find I have a mental block to even approaching it at this point. Then I went to a workshop this week that talked about something called deliberate practice.
Deliberate practice is a method that uses focused attention, a coach, and constant feedback to improve.
The part of the workshop that really stuck out to me was the Ted talk the presenter showed that explained different mindsets. In it Carol Dweck explains the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset.
After watching this video, I realized I had a fixed mindset for math. This is pretty normal and now that I recognize it, I can change it. I think recognition is a good first step in transitioning from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.
Are there areas in your life where you have a fixed mindset?
