#grit has been on NPR several times recently, not to mention front and center on the national education agenda.
The term expresses the idea that a crucial component of success is people’s ability to pick a goal and stick with it. That’s the main thrust of #research by Angela Duckworth at the University of Pennsylvania, which has earned her a MacArthur “genius” grant, national acclaim and, this month, a best-selling book.

It would seem that having grit isn’t quite as important as you may have been led to believe. Interesting and useful critique of the work of Angela Duckworth.
