On Friday, July 8, I present a synopsis of Angela Duckworth‘s # 1 best-seller, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance (New York: Scribner, 2016). You can register for this event by clicking HERE.
You might be interested in an earlier version of her thoughts on this subject. While the book more fully develops and refines what she says, this is a TED talk she gave in 2013.
As of this writing, the talk has had more than 8,700 views, making it extremely popular.
Here is the URL, or you can click HERE to see the video.
