Best of Kfm Mornings with Darren, Sherlin & Sibs

Monday Motivation: Passion, perseverance and grit


It's practically October, which means the silly season is not too far off. Many of us have been hard at work throughout the year and are looking forward to our December break.

If you, like us, need that extra little push to get you through the next few weeks, take a listen to this clip by Angela Lee Duckworth.

Angela left her high-flying job in consulting to teach math to grade sevens in a New York public school. She quickly realized that IQ wasn't the only thing separating the successful students from those who struggled. In her TED Talk, she explains her theory of "grit" as a predictor of success.

"We have to be willing to fail, to be wrong, to start over again with lessons learned."
