I Can't Make This Any Better; It is What it is

It seems that increasingly often you hear the phrase, “It is what it is.” I was taking the phrase to mean, “It’s not this and it’s not that; it’s something more subtle that I don’t have a name for, and I’m ok with that.” In other words, I took it to be an indication that the speaker is letting the thing exist in all its rich uniqueness without having to categorize it or analyze it.

The truth about ability & Accomplishment

Why some people achieve more & some achieve less than expected?

The key to answering this is mobilizing our resources for learning & not for protecting our egos...the low-effort syndrome. Working hard isn't something that makes us vulnerable (to possible failure & so...judgment), it makes you smarter.

Prodigies or not, we all have interests that can blossom into abilities. With the right mindset & right teaching, people are capable of a lot more than we think - the potential to develop.
