  1. Conclusion: Changing your explanations through repetition and consistency, changes your

    life: You become happier and more productive. NDC Oslo | @raganwald
  2. you got an "A," because when you study, you learn,

    and your grades reflect your learning NDC Oslo | @raganwald
  3. Optimism and growth for positive feedback — Emphasize personal choice;

    — Generalize the results of the our choices; — Emphasize an ongoing arc of applying choices to produce personal growth. NDC Oslo | @raganwald
  4. this code is great, because when you apply learning to

    your work, the results get be!er and be!er NDC Oslo | @raganwald
  5. Optimism and growth for negative feedback — Emphasize an impersonal

    cause of the event; — Restrict to a specific impact; — Emphasize that this is a temporary blip in an otherwise positive ongoing arc. NDC Oslo | @raganwald
  6. this blog post lacks a narrative that would hold its

    arguments together NDC Oslo | @raganwald
  7. when you state and stick to a theme, your posts

    are always coherent NDC Oslo | @raganwald
