"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"--… (més)

I saw this book on a list of “books to read before you start grad school” and I wish I’d read it before I started high school. It’s a great resource for anyone doing anything, I encourage you to read it too. ( )

This book basically tells you that grit is what you need to achieve excellence and success. I think grit is defined as the "passion" you have that motivates you to make effort as well as the "perseverance" you have to....make the repeated efforts. (I thought it's weird that two separate constructs are lumped together like this. I think the author is arguing excellence and success cannot be achieved if you only have one of the two. Gotta have both.) But the two constructs often correlate positively: Passion boosts perseverance, and perseverance leads to increased passion, because as you keep doing something and get better at it you will like what you are doing even more. The author lists ways you can increase grit for yourself and others (e.g. your children or students). The suggestions I find most interesting is: 1) Expose yourself to a variety of things to discover your interest; 2) Expect your interest to develop over time rather than love at first sight; 3) Do deliberate practice (a.k.a. with a plan in mind, work on the aspects of your skills that you need improvement on) every day. For example she encourages high school students to enroll in two different extracurricular activities, and engage in these activities with deliberate practice, for at least two years. (She acknowledges it will be difficult for low-income students. That's one thing I like a lot about the book. The author acknowledges the problems/weaknesses of her propositions. She wrote a great conclusion about how grit may not the most important thing in life you want to pursue, which was what I was thinking in the back of my mind throughout my course of reading :P ) ( )

This book starts repetitively. Grit makes for success. I kept going through the first several chapters hoping for an inspirational moment to grab onto. I would urge you to keep going to read parts of page 2.

I'm taking away from this book two major motivations. One is the bricklayer parable and one awesome quote from George Bernard Shaw:

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

It feels like the purpose of the book is just the author's attempt to get articles to say the following line "the word grit was coined by the psychologist...", it's a continuous push to attribute the meaning of an existing word (persistence) to a new word "grit".

As someone who discovered had Adult ADHD at 27, and has overcome most of these lessons already, the content of the book sounds redundant. But I'm pretty sure that for anyone who has never sat down to reflect on how they've been spending their lives spreading themselves too thin, this book will be of great help. ( )

Good stuff here. Yes, some of it is repetitive; she’s done a LOT of research on the topic, and there’s a lot to say. I don’t see myself as a particularly gritty person, so I really appreciated how she talked about developing grit for yourself, and also in context of parenting and teaching and how to develop grit in your kids. The hows ranged from general to specific, but I think I’ve found a few things to try at home. ( )

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.
