A philosophy of growth mindset

"Why waste time proving over and over how great you are, when you could be getting better? Why hide deficiencies instead of overcoming them? Why look for friends or partners who will just shore up your self-esteem instead of ones who will also challenge you to grow? And why seek out the tried and true, instead of experiences that will stretch you? The passion for streching yourself ans sticking to it, even (or specially) when it's not going well, is the hallmark of the growth mindset. This is the mindset that allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times in their lives."

Carol Dweck Professor of Psychology Standford University

Love to read books
and write thoughts

You can find a list of some of our perpetual drafts and read books, with notes about them. You will learn things that reflect our values, skills, and interests.

Believers in STEAM

You will find games written for makecode, learnings from self-made games and learnings from great activities such as GitHub Gameoff

This is our manifest. Based on our Values.

It starts with each of us – taking one step at a time toward creating a better place.

  • Self-aware

    Make a habit of noticing your own thinking. Do you find yourself doubting you can improve? For most of us, fixed-mindset thinking happens automatically when we deal with change or experience a setback. "Remember: it’s not about being good—it’s about getting better."

  • Willing to Experiment

    You must be willing to seek out and experiment with new approaches and ways of doing things. Experimenting with purpose (e.g. innovating based on deep insights of customers’ wants and needs) and accepting the mistakes that get made along the way is one of the quickest ways to generate solutions to complex problems.

  • Focus on progression over time

    Value progress because you need to focus on performance over time – where they were before, where they are now, and where they’re headed. Students who were evaluated across time—comparing their performance on early problems to their performance on later ones—adopted more of a growth mindset and scored significantly higher than students who were given a single "snapshot" score.

  • Learn from others

    Don't shy away from asking others for guidance for fear that they will look inept or inexperienced. Those with a growth mindset believe that experts aren’t born—they’re made through learning from others. It turns out that those who admit they don’t know something are more eager to learn and even appear more confident to others.

  • Choose the right words

    The way in which individuals and companies use words actually encourages either a fixed or a growth mindset. There is a big difference between "no" and "not yet." This is also the case with "expert" and "expertise." In both of these cases, the first word suggests something static or fixed, while the second indicates progress or something to be developed.

  • Improve

    The amazing thing about having a growth mindset is that while you’re practicing, focusing on learning, improving, and being open about change, daily incremental results and big outcomes over time just seem to happen. Rather than being fixated on results for results' sake—or taking short-term gains that sacrifice long-term opportunities—orient your mindset toward continual improvement over a longer time frame. This will result in better outcomes for you, your community, and the world.
