How do develop more “grit”?
“Grit” is supposedly “passion + purpose,” best defined by Angela Duckworth’s wonderful book “Grit.” The only thing obvious to any practitioner in change that Duckworth missed was “people skills.” Still, supporting the most common sense ever taught in personal development – be passionate and keep working hard and smart – with actual science is a step forward.
At a practical level, people ask me how to build grit, so here’s four simple ideas that complement the basics of grit research:
1. Discover what you hunger for.
2. Prime enthusiasm each morning so you’re passionate.
3. Block time to work diligently on practicing or doing your work.
4. Get a support team to help you sustain the journey.
