Before spring break we were focusing on growth mindset based projects. The first thing we did was learn about growth mindset and fixed mindset.
We also completed a sheet that shows what mindset we have. One thing that interested me was that I didn’t get as high of a score as I thought I would. A high score would have meant that I had a growth mindset, so I must have a mostly fixed mindset. Based on what we have learned about growth mindset, I want to practice to improve my skills. I will try to not give up as easily, and I will try as hard as I can on projects. I hope I am already getting better at this.
One place where I had to practice this skill is our last project. The last project that we had to do was a pick long term goal, do a graphic, and write a blog post about it. I made my goal really simple, and put it in simple font on a black and white selfie.
I chose to make “I will make decisions faster” as my goal because I feel like I am stalling at making decisions and taking too much time to do schoolwork for example, this blog post. I have learned that when I make a simple decision and get started, things usually go better and faster than they would have if I didn’t at least try.
I feel like this project benefited me because it has helped me find out what I need to improve on. Each time I make a decision I get better and faster and more confident. This works on lots of things both in and out of school.
Thank you and have a good afternoon
