What I'm reading

Physiology is learning that their models are wrong.

We are seeing that all the models from which we work may be wrong, because one degree of change in one thing does not mean one degree of change in the elongation of the hamstring. One degree with the pelvis isn't the same as one degree of knee or hip rotation. We can see that there are some things that influence more than others."


Great stories all have common elements.

Even though the content in great pitches is obviously different for different pitches, all of them follow a similar structure of highlighting the audience’s existing pain first, then showing a possibility of a better world, then highlighting the barriers to that better world, and finally introducing the product features as things that will help overcome such barriers.


The best way to praise children.

… [W]e can praise wisely, not praising intelligence or talent. That has failed. Don’t do that anymore. But praising the process that kids engage in: their effort, their strategies, their focus, their perseverance, their improvement. This process praise creates kids who are hardy and resilient.


All of us have a shadow side.

If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
