Hello again everyone,

Today I am going to be taking my previous ideas and plan out this project. If you want to read my notes, you can find them here: https://www.pa-mojabutterfly.c...ion-and-productivity
(Teacher: Stuart/Martin)


Research Round 1:

  • What is a mindset?
  • Are there different kinds of mindsets?
  • Is there such a thing as a "healthy" mindset? An "unhealthy" one?
  • How much of our life does our mindset impact?

Research Round 2:

  • Are mindsets changeable? If so, what is needed to change one?
  • Can we change our mindsets without intending to?
  • How does self-awareness (regarding flaws) impact ability to change?
  • How do mindsets change as we mature?

Research Round 3:

  • How much control do we have over:
    • Our emotions
    • Our moods
    • Our outbursts (e.g. yelling at someone for something they did)
    • Our relationships and our perception of these relationships
    • How we see others' actions
  • How does a mindset impact perception (of ourselves and of others)

Research Round 4:

  • How can we lessen the impacts of emotional outbursts, and why do they happen?
    • What causes individuals to overload and snap at others? What makes people cry?
  • How does a mindset impact productivity, and why is procrastination so popular? What makes it popular?



I may divide my third research round into two depending on the amount of information I find. I am rather excited to look into this for a number of reasons. First, I am interested in meditation, yoga, and the research behind why they work to calm and de-stress an individual. Second, I want to see why people will suddenly lose their temper over something (little or big). Third, I want to know what contributes to a healthy mindset, and how having an "unhealthy" mindset can be detrimental. Lastly, I want to see why a little action or phrase or word can be interpreted in so many different ways. 

A few sites that I found that could be useful in my research are:

Hey Joanna, your project plan is really well planned out and the topic is super interesting! I think looking into how mindsets are changeable is going to be really intriguing as I'm sure there are many people who want to change their mindset but it's not something you can easily do overnight. Maybe something you could look into is how mental illnesses can have a role in mindset or how genetics play a role as well. Here is a website to help you with your first research round:   


Good luck
