Grit by Angela Duckworth

Do you have problems finishing things? Do new ideas distract you from previous ones? Do you get derailed by setbacks more often than you would like? Then you could use more grit.


In 'Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance', Angela Duckworth shows how grit – the combination of passion and perseverance – distinguishes high achievers, and why talent isn’t as important as most people think


Passion is the consistency of goals held over long periods of time. It is NOT intensity or enthusiasm held for a brief moment. It is endurance.


Perseverance is the ability to overcome setbacks, put in hard work, and finish things you’ve started.


Grit is the combination of passion and perseverance.

Grit predicts success; a grittier person will enjoy more success.
