I am fascinated with Angela Duckworth’s work on grit and the importance of deliberate practice as the way to improve performance. Determination and perseverance are vital. I have not spent much time thinking about Calvin Coolidge, but his quote on persistence is exceptional.
Initiative — the decision to take action — is essential to any success. One of my favorite quotes is from Teddy Roosevelt.
I enjoy collecting articles about grit, initiative and creative problems solving. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have ideas for me.
