Grown Up or Adult? The Grit Test.

May 15, 2016

I’ve met a lot of adults but not many grown ups.

Grown ups have grit.

They do the things others aren’t willing to do, over and over.

As I face my to do list with a sigh, I am channelling eminent Psychologist Angela Lee Duckworth.

She says self-discipline matters more than talent and even IQ.

I believe her. She won the 2013 MacArthur Fellowship, graduated from Harvard and she’s done ground breaking research on grit with Dr. Martin Seligman at the University of Pennsylvania.

After you’ve completed your work that matters most, here’s her¬†TED talk.





Are you or your business reaching the fullest potential?

Good is no longer good enough. The goal is perfection and the path that takes us there leads to excellence.
