people who do things
how to measure what you’ve done (via youth in the lab).
1. does it matter
2. is it awesome
both assume you’ve done something.
both assume you’re talking to yourself about it.
like Adam & Bob Goff (p. 188) here:
so i think what i’ll do instead of writing things down now is just do lots of things, and then maybe when i’m done doing cool things, i will write them down later. – Adam
i used to think i needed to record stories, but now i know i just need to engage them. – Bob
entire video if you like.
- we found that – what do you want to do when you grow up – is quite mind-trapping. so we slid into the mindset of – what do you want to do today.
- we found that kids writing/creating their own curriculum was eventually mind-trapping as well. it seems whimsy/mind wandering matters if you’re seeking true grit. and true grit matters if you’re seeking sustainability. which is perhaps a more humane way to think of stick-to-itiveness – aka: the it is me.
- another topic we talked/talk about a lot – productivity. we settled in on the idea of fittingness (rather than productivity/simply doing things) – since doing things includes being, yet being is often times invisible to the eye.
