Core Belief: Sustainable, high performance comes from a playful, growth mindset

A growth mindset is the belief that intelligence/talent/capability is something that is developed.

Fixed mindset: desire to look smart, avoid challenges, give up easily, see effort as fruitless or worse, ignore useful negative feedback, feel threatened by the success of others; Growth mindset: desire to learn, embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as the path to mastery, learn from criticism, find lessons and inspiration in the success of others
Fixed Mindset vs Growth Mindset

Playfulness is a more sustainable path to high performance
