I had some thoughts while listening to//reading this great book by Angela Duckworth. I haven’t finished the book, and in no way is Ms. Duckworth suggesting that Grit is only about our public life, but this was how my thoughts shaped up during the first half of her manuscript. For context I think its important that you know my personality is an ENTJ (ENTP sometimes). More about that here: http://psychologyjunkie.com. And I fully understand that what I say here may not apply to all, these are just some thoughts that I think can be extracted and applied in different scenarios of life.
The article I referenced where Listening to the Audiobook is akin to reading the book: Relax, readers: Audiobooks aren’t ‘cheating’
The Toyota Sienna video can be found here…it’s quite funny.
And to make sure you’ve actually seen what True Grit looks like pick up a copy of True Grit (1969) with John Wayne // http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065126/?ref_=nv_sr_2 .
