Great Grit Resources


Angela Duckworth has made a name for herself with one word: Grit. After reading her first book and seeing her TED Talk, I am convinced that she has been on to something for a long time. Here are two quotes from her book:

"Together, the research reveals the psychological assets that mature paragons of grit have in common. There are four. . . and they tend to develop over the years, in a particular order.
  • Interest
  • Practice
  • Purpose
  • Hope" (pg. 91)
"If you want to bring forth grit in your child, first ask how much passion and perseverance you have for your own life goals. Then ask yourself how likely it is that your approach to parenting encourages your child to emulate you. If the answer to the first question is 'a great deal,' and your answer to the second is 'very likely,' you're already parenting for grit." (pg. 216)

I highly recommend her book, and you may want to check out these recent gritty articles.

"Is Grit Overrated?" by Jerry Useem [The Atlantic]

"Is 'grit' overrated in explaining student success? Harvard researchers have a new theory." by Jeffrey J. Selingo [The Washington Post]

After completing educations students were usually very much focused on decorating their resume with all the tit-bits and hefty things they have done so far in their education career,
but most of them forgot to add the weightage to their resume.When it’s about adding something to your CV or resume it is not about a heavy and attractive
career objective or the curricular activities you have done in your college days; of course it is important too, but what actually makes sense for organization is;
what more you can do apart from the traditional work. Here is where the courses like digital marketing is needed.
