Salman Khan: Recognize people who do something great

About 8 minutes into the great speech – embedded below – by Salman Khan of Khan Academy, that helps you to learn what you want when you want at your own pace, Mr. Khan encourages you to tell people, who do something great, that they do something great. Recognizing people, who do good things, will have a positive effect on them, Mr. Khan says. Reflecting on the wise words of Mr. Khan, I came to think of a study, I read about, showing that it is much better to praise a child for effort than for their intelligence.
