I scored low on the grit scale.

Today we’ve learned about grit scale.

Dr. Angela Duckworth’s grit (defined as one’s power for perseverance) has been a buzzword in the past few years. There are times when I think it’s the single most important personality trait that should be taught at schools. And I’m a strong advocate for all the grit research.


The grit score is actually useful. I realize I’m not gritty as I assumed, and that I should stay focused on my goal and my priorities. Sacrifices should be made.
