"In this must-read book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, athletes, students, and business people--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 readers 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 JP 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"--… (mere)

Lots of great stories, but would benefit from more clear practical applications for parents ( )

A self-help book that actually made me feel by the end of it. The author tells up right away that her father always told her and her sibling, "you're no genius." Turns out, she's not. But what she does have is a passion and a killer work ethic, and it turns out, both of those, in the long run, count more that the mysterious force that is talent. Better, you can work to improve your grit. Both practical suggestions to improve grit along with the science to back them up. A meaningful book for me. ( )

Generally, I agree with the Theory of Grit. I believe in (smart) hard work and grit is a way to choose to be better at something. I think the nature argument defines the range of what's possible and the nurture argument determines where we fall in that range. And therefore, grit is a combination of both nature and nurture. I do think the ability the grind away at something for a lengthy time, to persevere, is partly a matter of nature even though the opposite is what feels right.

Another point, the author's resume of high quality schools, awards, credentials and jobs almost undoes her grit argument entirely. It's like she's saying that, yes, grit is what counts but you need these other qualifiers first. It's a false assumption, but an impatient reader might not figure that out before giving up. ( )

Back in the day when I was doing coding for a living I remember grappling with a coding problem earlier and after twenty minutes gave up on the published method that wasn't working and just did it a different (and still legitimately MVC) way (which took five minutes). After that I encountered many devs over the years who would still be trying to make the published method work, well into next week. That's not grit, that's stupidity.

It would be interesting to analyze when these various preferred personality traits were popularized. For example, "true grit" seems to be a very post-recession sort of personality preference. Empathy and mindfulness, you'd imagine are preferred when things are going well and you have time to navel gaze and/or worry about other people. Curiosity...let me guess...around the time of the space program? Which takes us back to the primary issue raised by this article. Who cares what psychologists say? They're not real scientists. At best, they're motivational speakers. At worst, egomaniacal reverends.

Of course, there’s a more important to ask: is chippiness something you can unlearn? I'm fine as I am. Now if only other people would do me the favour of becoming worse, I'll look even better by comparison. Luckily that is coming true. People of all ages are becoming these befuddled, slow-moving klutzes these days. So if you can just keep the way you are, you will eventually be a relative genius…..and a distinctly handy one at that! Used to be known as stoicism before the wimpy socialistas made every excuse in the book for fucking things. Perhaps "gumption" is a better word. Or, perhaps more familiarly, stiff upper lip. Or maybe "stoicism" (my favourite before all this grit craze started): to me, implies patience and forethought whereas “grit” is gunblazingly shortsighted. I don't think it translates very well into English English where grit is an irritant or a dirt and not in the least bit desirable as a character attribute. In Portuguese the PC brigade would say "garra”; because I’ve never been PC, I’d say “ter tomates” (“have balls”)...

People can achieve almost anything if they put their mind to it. And there is the problem. Most people are a teeny bit lazy. Grit means going the extra mile. Grit means getting back up, keeping going, doing it anyway, and it's usually developed under extreme opposition and challenge. Grit is FUCK YOU!! I'm still here, I will do this. It can be learned, but if you've developed it because life has kicked you a lot, it's hard to be overjoyed about it. People may think they've changed significantly but their environment will usually say they've stayed the same (thing I read that in some study but can't be arsed to look it up). The stories we tell are the stories our mind has constructed, they are not proof for anything.

And large portions of grit are apparently just conscientiousness - one of the big five personality characters which are also known to remain fairly stable. in my experience, adrenaline is often the problem - we all have it in us to demonstrate grit, but for most people, the first time they are presented with a really challenging, or life/death situation, may be the first time in their entire lives that they experience a full adrenaline dump - understandably, the individual doesn't know what is happening to them (either they feel absolutely wretched or they get the red mist), hence the three classic reactions - fight, freeze, or flee, which may prevent them from taking the correct course of action to solve the problem. The solution is repeated exposure to moderate levels of adrenaline, i.e. ensuring that the individual is consistently pushed outside of their comfort zone, and depending on the intensity of the training, an individual will quickly learn to firstly recognise, then to ignore their adrenaline response.

NB: This grit bollocks just makes for a society of hard assed, fuck-you bullies. Truth is too many people are scared to be seen crying. Be brave. Nothing new in the book. Move on. ( )

“Who spends two years trying to get into a place and then drops out in the first two months?” (Duckworth, 2016, p. 4). This is how Angela began her book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance. This was after she described the entrance process to get into West Point, The United States Military Academy. It was also her focus of research while she was a psychology graduate student. The U.S. Army wanted to know the answer. It is an answer that I was curious about. Read more ( )

Nobody wants to show you the hours and hours of becoming. They'd rather show the highlight of what they’ve become.

Enthusiasm is common. Endurance is rare.
Growing up, I heard the word genius a lot.
Our potential is one thing. What we do with it is quite another.
There are no shortcuts to excellence. Developing real expertise, figuring out really hard problems, it all takes time―longer than most people imagine….you’ve got to apply those skills and produce goods or services that are valuable to people….Grit is about working on something you care about so much that you’re willing to stay loyal to it…it’s doing what you love, but not just falling in love―staying in love.
as much as talent counts, effort counts twice.
