Life lesson

In this brilliant 6 min talk Angela Lee Duckworth talks about the success in education and in life. And she has observed it is about the GRIT. How do you build grit? She is not sure yet, but a growth mindset is very helpful. When you stick with your future, life will progress in this direction.

Live life as it is a marathon

This video reminds me very well of my learning experiences on my around the world trip, especially surfing. In the beginning I was more falling then surfing. I was more paddling then anything else, I was so exhausted from all that, especially because my body and my technics were weak.

But then you have one second on the board and you feel the adrenaline rush in your body and you know all this falling and being exhausted is part of it. And I knew that over time I will get better in surfing. And I did! Not that I’m a great surfer yet, but I see the progress and this is very rewarding indeed and helps me to stick to the goal in learning how to surf 🙂 Life lesson learned!
