Just started reading Little Bets by Peter Sims

And though I’m only on page 32, I’m hooked already. Will keep you posted on any interesting nuggets. 

Here’s a little bit of what it’s about (p13/14):

Fundamental to the little bets approach is that we:

  • Experiment
  • Play
  • Immerse
  • Define
  • Reorient
  • Iterate

And a little further on:

There is much less emphasis [in education] on developing our creative thinking abilities, our abilities to let our minds run imaginatively and to discover things on our own. We are given very little opportunity, for example, to perform our own, original experiments, and there is also little or no margin for failure or mistakes. We are graded primarily on gettings answers right.
