Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.

What makes some of us work harder than others? Can doing “one hard thing” a day help develop “grit” early in life? Today’s Daily Dose shared by Stefan at Project Life Mastery is a great primer to understanding the world of “grit”.

Stefan’s thesis comes from a book by Angela Duckworth titled Grit, the Power of Passion and Perseverance. Angela quit a stressful consultant position to teach math to seventh graders in the New York City. After studying why some students worked harder and longer than others, she began to develop an understanding of the qualities which promote perseverance.  Angela then developed a Grit Scale which is a series of questions to test your ability to persevere.  Check it out here!

Hope you enjoy these two great creators as much as I have. Have a great day.

Stay Wise and Gritty!
