Why did I love this book?
Carol Dweck's book Mindset explores the idea that our beliefs about our own abilities and potential can have a significant impact on our success in life.
Dweck identifies two distinct mindsets that people can have: a fixed mindset or a growth mindset. Individuals with a fixed mindset believe that their talents and abilities are fixed traits that cannot be changed, while those with a growth mindset believe that their abilities can be developed through hard work, dedication, and perseverance.
This work has resonated with me during my more than two decades of experience driving innovation from Silicon Valley, where I have seen the power of growth mindset in action as innovators brought new ideas to productive use.
I highly recommend it for anyone interested in bringing new ideas to light.
