Dr. Angela Duckworth has become a legend in the field of psychology with her research and book on the impact that grit has in predicting someone’s academic and career success. Grit being perseverance and passion–and it is measurable. In fact, she’s built the scale. So if you’ve ever had a chip on your shoulder because someone told you that you didn’t have the ability to do something, often measured by native intelligence, the satisfaction you had in proving them wrong is probably a factor of your grittiness. Do you have the will to succeed? Ready to go the distance to attain a goal in the fashion of a marathon and not a sprint? Then, you’ll want to understand more about grit in the make-up of your character. And given the volatility in today’s work environment, you’ll need even more of it to succeed. We talked to her several years ago and posted a vintage radio interview as episode #01. Our latest interview with her is this episode of the podcast.
