GRIT is a term we really don’t hear much about these days. Which is a shame. The subtitle of this book should be: Getting Shit Done. It turns out that perseverance is a better predictor of success. This is why we have all seen people we know to not be the sharpest knife in the drawer yet they are successful. Grit may be the missing ingredient you need to get going. In addition to the ebook, I found the unabridged audiobook (Nine + hours!), her TED talk, as well as her interview on the Art of Manliness podcast. This is important and you need to see it.
Why are some people more successful than others?
It’s a tough question to answer because it’s a mixture of a whole bunch of factors, many of which are out of our control like luck or even our genetics.
But there are a few factors that we have a say over and one of them is the ability to persevere, even in the face of setbacks. In other words, grit.
My guest today has spent her career researching what makes people gritty and how we can develop this trait in ourselves. Her name is Angela Duckworth. She’s a professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and the author of the book Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance. Today on the show we discuss her research on grit and insights on how we can develop this important trait ourselves based on her visits and interactions with poor, inner city students, West Point cadets, and Seattle Seahawks football players.

Here is the book description:
In this must-listen book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, students, and businesspeople – both seasoned and new – that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a focused persistence called ‘grit’. Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, MacArthur ‘genius’ Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success. Rather, other factors can be even more crucial, such as identifying our passions and following through on our commitments. Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently bemoaned her lack of smarts, Duckworth describes her winding path through teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not genius but a special blend of passion and long-term perseverance. As a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Duckworth created her own ‘character lab’ and set out to test her theory. Here, she takes listeners into the field to visit teachers working in some of the toughest schools, cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she’s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers – from J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to the cartoon editor of The New Yorker to Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life changing, Grit is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down and how that – not talent or luck – makes all the difference.
