Perserverance and Persistance

In her entry called "True Grit," Lisa Haneberg over at Management Craft talks about an article in the December issue of Psychology Today, called "The Winning Edge."

The essence:

  • Perserverance and persistance - or grit, makes a significant difference in achievement.
  • Grit can be developed

Ways to nurture grit include:

  • Helping people find their passion
  • Providing criticism lessons
  • Be a model of gritiness
  • Offer challenges
  • Teach people to handle and learn from failure
  • Don't worry about balance

Grit. Good stuff. The article is available online, and definitely worth reading.

(Tip of the hat to Lisa!)
