Natural Leadership


Want to be a genius? Or maybe simply achieve those pesky goals that slip out of your grasp? How can you stick to it, even when it gets tough?

Listen to this Freakonomics Radio podcast to learn more about how “effort and grit means most” in getting what you want and achieving success in your life.

“The psychologist Angela Duckworth argues that a person’s level of stick-to-itiveness is directly related to their level of success. No big surprise there. But grit, she says, isn’t something you’re born with — it can be learned. Here’s how.” — Freakonomics Radio

It’s possible that everyone could use a bit more grit but getting gritty is especially relevant to sustainable designers who must swim against the tide and shatter the status quo on a daily basis.

The Freakonomics Radio episode How to Get More Grit in Your Life was rebroadcast by WNYC and NPR on February 8, 2017.
