It's amazing how well I can apply what I learn from SOF to my profession (college math instructor). Too many math students think that they just need to "know the answer" or just show up for the test (many may start doing this, then they seem to disappear). It's so much more than just the answer. I listened to Prof. Diamond's podcast twice and read the transcript. I sent the following email out to my students, with this quote from the show:

“... even in college discipline – being able to exercise discipline and keep at it and practice and study and finish your assignments and start your assignments when you need to – is much more important than IQ.”

Instead of ENDING the semester with this quote, I will BEGIN the next one with it. Thank you, again, for another wonderful show.
