Grit – The Power of Passion and Perseverance – Angela Duckworth

The title says it all really. Basic argument is that perseverance (i.e.  “grit”) is  the most  important factor in “success”. I would debate that her measurement of  success is too conventional.  Based on my personal experience and child-raising experience, I think her idea is valid.

Duckworth is  a  social scientist. Her thoughts are backed-up to a degree by science.
