 Grit by Angela Duckworth

"The highly successful had a kind of ferocious determination that played out in two ways. First, these exemplars were usually resilient and hardworking. Second, they knew in a very, very deep way what it was they wanted. They not only had determination, they had direction… This is the intersection of passion and perseverance."


"The word passion is often used to describe intense emotions. For a lot of people, passion is synonymous with infatuation of obsession… Rather than intensity, what comes up again and again in remarks of high achievers is the idea of consistency over time."

—Angela Duckworth, Grit
