Feel Good Sunday: the secret sauce to success
Leaving a high-flying job in consulting, Angela Lee Duckworth took a job teaching math to seventh graders in a New York public school. She quickly realized that IQ wasn’t the only thing separating the successful students from those who struggled. Here, she explains her theory of “grit” as a predictor of success.
Duckworth started studying kids and adults in all kinds of super challenging settings, and in every study her question was, who is successful here and why?
It wasn’t social intelligence. It wasn’t good looks, physical health, and it wasn’t IQ. It was grit. The reality is; #talent does not equate to success.
