Hey! This post is part of our On Our Minds series. We’ve heard that you want a partner that is always thinking, exploring, growing, and learning about learning. Well, that’s us. So instead of keeping all of our thoughts to ourselves, we’re sharing all the things swirling around in our mind. In this series you’ll find thoughts, half-baked ideas, and insight into the questions our strategy team is currently asking and the ideas we are exploring.
I hope you enjoy it.

We’ve all been there: unfairly expecting perfection out of ourselves even when we know better. And it starts young.
Just this week, I was having a conversation with my eight year old daughter whose team had won their softball game 17-2. I asked her if she’d ever thought about pitching before, as the team currently played using a machine pitcher. But without even thinking about it, she simply replied, “No, I’m not good at it—watch,” she proceeded to pick up the ball and try her hand at a new skill: an underhand pitch.
