Grit, Passion and Perseverance - 046

Update: 2018-10-0234


Ep 046: People are generally pretty awesome right? Sometimes I look at athletes are incredibly successful people and think, "I wish I could do that." You have to be born with it right? Or have you just trained for 10,000 hours? Had to be… it's just unfair otherwise right?

That’s what we’re exploring today. What does it take to be successful. Is it natural talent? Or is it the will to persevere. And if it’s the latter, are you born with that relentless drive? Or can it be developed?

We talk to Angela Duckworth, researcher and author of New York Times bestseller Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance. When she was young her dad were tell her you’re no genius… which is ironic because she went on to become a MacArthur “genius” grant winner… so she spent the better part of her life proving him wrong. She studied the psychology of achievement for well over a decade. Now we get to learn the nitty gritty of her findings. Yay!

Today we will learn:

- What is grit really and why is it so critical to success
- How to start developing grit and why it’s not too late
- How to keep your passion for the long-term

I am really enjoying the content of this podcast. I will say, however, that it is very obvious that you re-record your questions and comments and then edit together the show. There is a staged, tense, presentational quality to your part of the dialogue. please just relax. you don't need to be so loud or forced. you know what you're doing, so trust that and get out of your own way. or better yet, let us hear your original part of the interview. it would be so much better. thanks for the great work.
