Really about teaching your kids to focus on hard work and not intrinsic capability.      source
Grit is her word for persistence, focus, endurance, and constant improvement. Great thoughts on this point. If interested in it, also read the books here about deliberate practice.      source

Book 6 from 2017. Although the title may make it appear intuitive, the reading is much more insightful and applicable than you might guess.      source
@OmarKhafagy Great book. I think she actually talks about me in it 😂      source
Incredibly important…There is deeply embodied grit, which is born of love, purpose, truth to one's core under ferocious heat, and a relentless passion for what can only be revealed on the razor’s edge; and there is the cool, patient, disciplined cultivation and study of resilience that can teach us all how to get there. Angela Duckworth's masterpiece straddles both worlds, offering a level of nuance that I haven’t read before.      source
Talent x Effort = Skill. Skill x Effort = Accomplishment. SO EFFORT COUNTS TWICE. Paraphrased from GRIT by @angeladuckw. I recommend this book HIGHLY.      source
