‘We Are Unfinished Human BEings’

In her bestseller book called ‘Mindset’, Dr Carol S. Dweck is committed to teaching the growth mindset. Naming humans ‘unfinished human beings’ really made me aware of what a fix mindset is about: thinking that with a degree, a place in the society, a family and a good job we are ‘settled’. We no longer need to work for things, we’ve reached our final state. Wrong.

A fix mindset keeps us prisoners to the past when the world around us is ever evolving.

It’s always striking to hear people speaking about not their wish of not having to work when the alternative brings depression and lack of self-belief. Living life with eagerness – eager to make mistakes, to learn, to move forward – is what allows us to stand out and bring value to the world.
