Growing Beyond a Mistake

“Mistakes grow your brain. … at least a small part of the fore-brain called the thalamus can appreciably grow after periods of the sort of cognitive stimulation involved in mistake-making. What matters for improving performance is that a person is challenged, which requires a mindset that is receptive to being challenged, if not actively seeking out challenge and failure. And that may be the most important thing a teacher can impart.”
