I saw this diagram in a post by Guy Kawasaki.
It seems pretty obvious to me that Memphis has a fixed, as opposed to growth, mindset. Or perhaps I should write, Memphis' dominant mindset is static. A fixed mindset has historically dominated, but does not determine, Memphis.
Where does that mindset come from, and how do we fight it?
I think it comes from racism and anti-democratic hierarchism, which still tell us that there's only so much we can do, so sit down and shut up while the leaders figure out the rest.
We fight it by learning and creating -- otherwise ignoring and/or making fun of the boundaries that never existed.
And we can read the book by Professor Carol Dweck, who was the subject of Kawasaki's post.
