Do you want to be grittier?
What defines grit?
Based on Angela Duckworth’s book, Grit, her research shows 4 characteristics:
1. Interest – when we’re captivated by the endeavor as a whole, although some of it sucks, overall we find it interesting
2. Practice – the need to continuously be better and resist complacency
3. Purpose – your work is important not just to you but others, interest without purpose is not sustainable
4. Hope – ability to keep going, knowing there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, when things get difficult
