Grit: Perseverance and Passion for Long-Term Goals
Grit: Perseverance and Passion for Long-Term Goals by Angela Duckworth and Christopher Peterson report that grit, defined as perseverance and passion for long-term goals — was more important in predicting success than IQ and conscientiousness. In one of my all-time favorite charts, the authors show that grit was a better predictor of success than IQ or self-control. Deliberate practice and perseverance will get you more than raw talent.
