Design lesson not taught in schools

  1. 1. hi.  
  2. 2. i’m  a  geek.  
  3. 3. If  i  don’t  look  like  one,   that’s  because  
  4. 4. i’m  disguised.
  5. 5.              Well,  today            we  are  going  to  talk   about  
  6. 6. a  design   lesson   that   schools   dont   teach  
  7. 7.              what  is  design  
  8. 8. crea8vity   problem-­‐solving          design  is  everywhere   fun   innova8on  
  9. 9.            but  what  if  we  fail  
  10. 10.    what  if  our  design  fails  
  11. 11.      how  does  it  feel  when                                                      we  fail  
  12. 12. frustrated   hopeless                and  so  we  get  angry   unworthy  
  13. 13. STOPPED  
  14. 14.              let  us  look  at  an                                      experiment  
  15. 15. Round  #1  Group  A     Two  groups  of  students.     Set  of  puzzles  given  to  each  group       Group  A  praised  for  their  abili8es.   “Wow,  you  got  a  good  score.  You  must   be  smart  at  this!”    Group  B     Group  B  praised  for  their  effort.   “You  must  have  really  worked  hard.”  
  16. 16. Round  #2  Group  A     Choice  of  easy  or  challenging  tasks         Most  of  Group  A  praised  for  their   intelligence  took  only  easy  tasks.       90%  of  Group  B  praised  for  their    Group  B   effort  chose  challenging  tasks  
  17. 17. Round  #3  Group  A     Tougher  problems  given.  Cri8cized  for failure       Group  A  performed  badly  and  were   dejected  and  lied  about  their  score.      Group  B   Group  B  did  beNer  and  liked  solving   difficult  problems.  Took  the  problems   home  to  solve  it.  
  18. 18. Low  score  –  ques8ons  his   intelligence  or  worth     Take  acEviEes  that  confirm  their  Group  A   abili8es     “I  am  not  that  good  enough.  I   couldn’t  do  this  properly"   Low  score  –  take  it  as  an   opportunity  to  try  harder       Take  acEviEes  that  expand  their  Group  B   abili8es     “l  love  a  challenge.  I  will  try   harder  next  Eme"  
  19. 19. Low  score  –  ques8ons  his   intelligence  or  worth     Fixed   Take  acEviEes  that  confirm  their  Mindset   abili8es     “I  am  not  that  good  enough.  I   couldn’t  do  this  properly"   Low  score  –  take  it  as  an   opportunity  to  try  harder      Growth   Take  acEviEes  that  expand  their   abili8es  Mindset     “l  love  a  challenge.  I  will  try   harder  next  Eme"  
  20. 20. Fixed  Mindset   Growth  Mindset   Avoids  Challenges   Embraces  Challenges           Give  up  easily,  in  the  face  of   Persist,  in  the  face  of   obstacles   obstacles               See  effort  as  fruitless   See  effort  as  path  to  mastery                   Cannot  tolerate  cri8cism.   Learn  from  cri8cism.     Ignore  useful  feedback.             Feel  threatened  by  success   Inspired  by  success  of   of  others   others      
  21. 21.      so  it  boils  down  to  the                                          ques8on  
  22. 22.  effort      vs      ability    
  23. 23.  are  you  going  to      
  24. 24.  exp and    your     efforts  
  25. 25. or  
  26. 26.  keep    confirming  your    ability    
  27. 27.  The  experiment      unrevealed      a  secret  too    
  28. 28.  Intelligence      can  be      developed  with  effort    
  29. 29.    but  how  does  this  help  us  
  30. 30.  when  we  design,  at  :mes,   most  of  the  :mes   we  fail  
  31. 31.          The  faster  we  fail,  the   closer  to  success  we  get  
  32. 32.          It  is  called  as  failing   forward  
  33. 33.  And  we  do  it  with  li:le  bets  
  34. 34.   Because  when   we  fail  quickly  using  liNle  bets,   we  learn  fast
  35. 35.   But  there   something  else  we  should  know   about  too  
  36. 36.   And  it   is  called  as  perfec8onism  
  37. 37.   There  are   two  types  of  perfec8onism  
  38. 38. Healthy  Perfec8onism    striving  for  excellence      planning  ahead   parental  pressure      life  sa8sfac8on   need  for  approval      posi8ve  mood   past  poor  performances     intense  worry  about  making   mistakes     Unhealthy  Perfec8onism  
  39. 39.   So,   this  is  not  just  a  design  lesson  
  40. 40.   It  is    a  design  for  life  to  design  your  life  
  41. 41.  It  is  either  By  default   or   By  design  
  42. 42.   So,   go  ahead   to  design  YOUR  LIFE!  
  43. 43.  thank  you!
