A thought, thus lesson, I learned today:
‘Growth mindset’ vs ‘fixed mindset’ – very important.
Though this question of “If you keep telling yourself you’re ‘learning’ – until when?” is valid, I think there’s something called ‘learning by doing’. It is the idea that though one is perpetually a student – of school; of life; of the workplace …the list goes on – the act of learning is layered, multiform, and continuously evolving. The spaces of ‘discomfort’ and ‘uncertainty’ – turn those into spaces of productivity. One who does not realize and act upon this will eventually stagnate.
Therefore – stretch (often).
