Thanks for sharing this concept. I hadn’t seen it before, but it makes sense. I’ll have to give it a closer look now.

I think this matches up with growth mindset versus fixed mindset pretty well too. Growth mindset is about developing a focus on learning and finding opportunities whether you succeed or come up short. A fixed mindset is, like the name suggests, fixed only on what can be done because of how it’s been done before.

Very similar to the window and the door.

There just might be a third option though, seeing just enough to decide on a direction of action but not having to know everything in order to take the first step.

Great read and good info on these concepts!
