  • Give them a few minutes to come up with their own ideas. Write them on the board.
  • “ Learn to think” is SEU&apos;s branded tagline—learning to think involves more than just absorbing information. Learning to ask better questions and finding connections among different experiences and bodies of knowledge are major parts of “college-level thinking.”
  • This table shows how often (about 2/3 of the time, as it turns out) the very best players in the NBA miss clutch, game-winning shots. Does this mean they hang their heads in shame, that they avoid taking risks? Or, does it mean that they learn from mistakes and keep putting themselves in a position to have a chance to win? The same point could be made with baseball stats: a great .300 average means you spend a lot of time not getting hits. Too many students are risk-averse and play it safe. The lesson of this chart is to keep lacing up your gym shoes and taking good shots!
  • The picture on the left shows Michael Jordan&apos;s iconic game-winning shot in the NBA Finals. The caption on this picture is “one for the ages.” And it was. But you don&apos;t get the chance to be brilliant and to shine with all your talent unless you also are willing to experiment and to practice. You have to dig in and accept mistakes along the way. That&apos;s the point of the YouTube shot: the great Michael Jordan, probably the best pure athlete ever to play the game, realizes the importance of showing up to a deserted gym and practicing free throws, so he makes a video about the importance of habits and practice. Habit is a greater predictor of success than pure talent.
