What The Heck Is JustTries?

JKL200, Learning, JustTries

JustTries is a project that I hope will last for the rest of my life. I know my mind can run wild and be confusing for people, so this is my attempt to explain why and what it is in writing. In the simplest form.

I am choosing one skill and focusing on learning it because that will bring clarity. I will learn the skill from different sources and share the learning with my audience.

As a teacher, I witness youth all the time struggling to dream big and achieve their goals. I am confident that one thing that is lacking in the world of social media is role models for growth mindset, vulnerability and learning skills. JustTries is content that shows how to put the best learning skills into practice that is meant to inspire you to crush your learning goals.

How Does JustTries Work?

JustTries is a way to put the “Just Keep Learning” Mindset into practice. Instead of just talking about learning, I will show you! So, I will choose a different skill, such as photography, dance, or painting and practice using the mindset for two hundred hours. Throughout the two hundred hours I will be demonstrating the use of the Just Keep Learning Mindset:

  • Growth Mindset
  • Habits
  • Perspective
  • Focus
  • Why
  • Vulnerability
  • Big Dreams
  • Fast Feedback

The content can be followed across all social media platforms @JustTries in ways contextual to the different platforms. Each two hundred hours of learning will include micro-posts, updates, collaboration videos, vlogs, and blog posts. Because we want the message to be clear and bring you value, if you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to connect.

Since Youtube is our main pillar for sharing the JustTries story, here is the original Youtube trailer. We don’t know what skill we’ll try next, but the first skill is business.
