Author: Angela Duckworth

Publication Date: 2016

Introduction

Psychologist and researcher Angela Duckworth (1970–) explores the psychology of success. Duckworth concludes that grit, defined as a combination of passion and perseverance, matters more than talent. She developed the Grit Scale, a tool originally designed to help military academy decision makers predict successful applicants. It has also become useful as a tool for self-reflection, the first step in growing grit. Grit can be nurtured from the inside out and from the outside in.
