Aim for a growth mindset, rather than comparing and contrasting

Written by Stuart Haden on November 18, 2020

Comparing and contrasting is easy, it’s natural – but it’s not always that helpful. For example when it comes to learning it can promote more of a fixed versus growth mindset. Go there, but don’t fix and fixate. It’s just another data point.

Observe, it could be a good starting point, but probably is not a good ending point. Watch your inner narrative, don’t get stuck. Then shift to adapt and adopt. Taking the best and forgetting the rest, changing course ever so slightly.
