The Power of Yet – a little reminder

This is a nice little reminder about the importance of having a growth mindset. It comes to us from Carol Dweck:

“I don’t get it.”

“I can’t do this.”

“This doesn’t work.”

Take a deep breath. Go for a short stroll. Then add ‘yet’ to the end of your sentence.

“I don’t get it….yet.”

“I can’t do this….yet.”

“This doesn’t work….yet.”

What a difference one little word makes. It moves us from impossibility to possibility, from giving up to trying again. “Yet” can be a very powerful word.

To watch a 10 minute Ted Talk by Carol Dweck:,that%E2%80%99s%20slightly%20too%20hard%20for%20you%20to%20solve.
