He highlighted important areas such as ‘Thinking about Thinking’ and managing time, combined with the development of clearly set goals that connect to successful learning and are driven by the process, not just the product. Underlying success in all that we do is the ability to grow our mindset, rather than allowing our capacity to be fixed. This is key if we aspire to achieve beyond our current level of operation and grow capacity.
