Grit (as studied by Angela Duckworth in the book Grit) is the ability to get up after a knock.
The classic knock down 7 get up 8.
The most important piece of information I ever received from my MBA was that academics had studied successful business people, and tried to identify what was the key factor to their success - ie was it sales, marketing or financial ability for example. They wanted to isolate the success factor and then teach it.
They discovered it was GRIT.
The determination and ability to get up after a knock.
Today (in the vid) I had (and I am being polite here) a meeting with a set of architects and (remember I am not a neg head, so this language shows how bad it was) was actually disgusted with the low quality of BS and low standard of work they tried to BS past me.
Properly almost speechless.
So what was my response?
Put the hours in. It was almost physical, I used a dreadful moment in property (it will get sorted don't worry) to fuel my fire, and I was still on the office grafting way past my usual bedtime!
That (now) automatic grit response to a tough situation |(in the moment) is what allows people to succeed.
So cultivate your grit. (I prefer to call it that rather than stubbornness, Susie!)
Remember the saying 'their fault your responsibility'.
PS. The head of the architect firm tried to appease me by showing me fitness videos. Yes. Nuts. Did not work. PEOPLE!!!
Take the Grit test. Fun to see. And Angela's Duckworth's book Grit is super useful to cultivate grit. https://angeladuckworth.com...
My grit score this morning was 4.8 out of 5. (not really a surprise for you guys who know me!)
