This is a fascinating article about something I’ve been writing about for a long time now. Psychologists are calling it “grit”. I’ve been calling it the ability to “grind”, which is similar enough to be interesting by itself.
Anyway, the point of the article is that grit seems to be just as important, and in many cases more important than IQ or talent in determining how successful someone becomes. For anyone who’s wondering what the magic balance is, I strongly suggest you read this piece. ::
