Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
Angela Lee Duckworth left her well-paid, high-flying consulting job not for another more lucrative consulting career or position but to teach seventh grade math … in a public school.
As someone interested in human potential and success and a consultant myself I found her story and her observation fascinating and inspiring.
Grit predicts success!
Duckworth’s observation was that successful students weren’t the only ones with high IQs.
While grit by no means isn’t the only contributor to professional or personal success, if it’s missing, success becomes a lot harder too.
In this video, she explains how “grit predicts success“.
