What an insightful and inspiring talk from renowned psychologist Carol Dweck:
Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain's capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.
I love reading through the NYTimes Cooking Round-Up email with tips and ideas of glorious treats to cook up on the weekend and during the week. Today though, my treat for completing some work, as I read through the recipes (grilled corn, clams!!!), founding editor of NYT Cooking, Sam Sifton, noted the music the cooking team would be listening to.....Eddie James./Son House. Amazing! This is the perfect music to cook to (and dance to, and read to, and relax to and have a bath to....). Om nom nom!
