How gritty are you?
Updated: Jan 14, 2021
Do you stick to your long-term goals? Or do you constantly get distracted by new ideas and projects?
Do you keep showing up when things get difficult? Or do you procrastinate and give up?
Your answers to these questions are important because they say a lot about the level of success you’re likely to experience in life.
What's your GRIT score? I was not surprised at my test results, and I'll be happy to share them with you, if you tell me yours! ;-)
Leaving a high-flying job in consulting, Angela Lee Duckworth took a job teaching maths to seventh graders in a New York public school. She quickly realized that IQ wasn't the only thing separating the successful students from those who struggled. Here, she explains her theory of "grit" as a predictor of success.
