5 Main Ideas

  1. Grit is about maintaining the same top-level goal for a very long time.
  2. GRIT has four psychological assets: (1) interest (2) practice (3) purpose (4) hope.
  3. Gritty people perform more deliberate practice and experience more flow.
  4. For paragons of grit, the long days and evenings of toil, the setbacks and disappointments, and struggle, the sacrifice—all this is worth it because, ultimately, their efforts pay dividends to other people.
  5. Often, the critical gritty-or-not decisions we make are a matter of identity more than anything else.
