The Super Mario Effect

I love Mark Rober. If somehow, you’ve never seen his work, he’s a former engineer turned YouTuber who makes all the engineering toys that we occasionally dream to dream.

Anyway, he has a fantastic TedX talk titled The Super Mario Effect. In it, he details how, if appropriately framed, learning can be fun and engaging. I originally wanted to write this as part of my article on choosing to believe in yourself, but I couldn’t find it! You should check it out below if you haven’t already seen it.

This talk is one of many that remind me that you’re never wasting time. You can take the skills you develop while playing to bigger and better things or simply relax, knowing that you’re learning to learn. Keep choosing to be more than the sum of your parts (and have fun!).
