“Enthusiasm is common. Endurance is rare.”
Angela Duckworth, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

“Our potential is one thing. What we do with it is quite another.”
Angela Duckworth, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

“...there are no shortcuts to excellence. Developing real expertise, figuring out really hard problems, it all takes time―longer than most people imagine....you've got to apply those skills and produce goods or services that are valuable to people....Grit is about working on something you care about so much that you're willing to stay loyal to it...it's doing what you love, but not just falling in love―staying in love.”
Angela Duckworth, Grit: Passion, Perseverance, and the Science of Success
