The TED Interview: How to turn grit into a lifelong habit | Angela Duckworth

We’re taking a few weeks off while we prepare the next season. So in the meantime, we’re sharing another episode from the TED Audio Collective that we thought you, of all people, might enjoy. It’s from The TED Interview, hosted by head of TED Chris Anderson. What does it take to persevere and succeed, not just in our careers but in all aspects of our lives? For psychologist Angela Duckworth, the answer can be summed up in one concept: grit. She explains the ingredients in grit and the experiences that make one person persist where another gives up—and offers concrete steps to instill grit early in life and sustain it. If you like what you hear, check out the full season of The TED Interview wherever you’re listening to this.
