There are two main mindsets we can navigate life with: growth and fixed. Having a growth mindset is essential for success. In this post, we explore how to develop the right mindset for improving your intelligence.

The Power of Believing You Can Improve

To end the year, we put together a special episode of the podcast featuring snippets from 10 of the most downloaded episodes. (Become a supporting member and get access to the transcript and other goodies..)

If you don't already know, The Knowledge Project is on YouTube. Not only do we publish full episodes but we also publish shorter clips of key moments in the conversation. Some of our recent shorts include: Adam Grant on separating beliefs from identity; Robert Cialdini explaining social proof; Jane McGonigal explaining why the best time for kids to play video games is right after school; and Seth Godin showing you the difference between a professional and an amateur.

Explore Your Curiosity

★ "It’s very important to know what you don’t like. A big part of innovation is saying, “You know what I’m really sick of?” ... “What am I really sick of?” is where innovation begins."

Life's Work

★ "Run your own race, as in: you set certain standards for yourself, and you focus on meeting them. When you meet them, you’re proud of yourself. When you don’t, you urge yourself to try harder. You don’t question your standards based on what anyone else is doing. You don’t look over at someone else’s race and think, I’m doing a bad job because you’re going faster. You just focus on your own pace."

You Set The Standards

Insight

“Always remember that to argue, and win, is to break down the reality of the person you are arguing against. It is painful to lose your reality, so be kind, even if you are right.”

— Haruki Murakami
