Raising Happiness


Happiness Matters: Pressured to Succeed (repost)

October 19, 2010 | Happiness Matters Podcast | 0 comments

Sorry for the technical difficulties with this podcast -- it is fixed now if you'd like to listen!

If you have read any of my posts about perfectionism and thought, “ut-oh,” I’ve got a perfectionist in my midst, this podcast will be of interest to you.  How willing to make mistakes we are is a function of our mindset.  Learn whether you embody a “growth-mindset” or a “fixed-mindset,” and why this is important for motivating kids to be engaged in their learning.



Please check out my podcast with Rona Renner either here on the Greater Good website, or here on iTunes.  Happy listening!
