Stop working for gold stars

How to stop equating learning with performing

I stopped wanting to learn because I felt small every time I tried.

The first is this: do not let shame be your motivator.

The second thing it takes to keep learning: accept that you are responsible for your own education.

And lastly, realize learning is not a checkbox.

“You’re right, I don’t know a lot of things. But that’s why I’ve chosen to be a learner.”
