I felt very inspired and challenged when reading Sal Khan’s article on being smart versus showing effort. I agree that effort should be the focus over perfection or the correct answer. I was so inspired I further searched for more articles and resources. I found another article “Reinforcing, Reminding, and Redirecting” and books: The Power of Words, Choice Words and Opening Minds: Using Language to Change Lives. I plan on purchasing them and working on language that I can feel authentic about using.
