Grit! It’s not just for square-jawed ruggedly handsome Western heroes anymore

“It turns out that intelligence might not be the best indicator of future success. According to psychologist Angela Duckworth, the secret to outstanding achievement isn’t talent. Instead, it’s a special blend of persistence and passion that she calls ‘grit.'”
Why Grit Is More Important Than IQ When You’re Trying To Become Successful, by Lisa Quast, Forbes, March 6, 2017

Facilitated by Elaine Padilla, Ana Nguyen, and Kristine Moe. Seating is very limited, so please don’t delay submitting your RSVP, which closes on Tuesday, 8/15.
