Mind – cultivating a growth mindset

Mind - cultivating a growth mindset I mentioned in my Mind intro that we’d be covering the topic of mindset. I’m keen to do this sooner rather than later, as I suspect there may be some people out there that are rather fixed in their mindsets and I’d really like to help cultivate the growth [...]
