The mindset you need to succeed at every goal
Grit is about orienting yourself to pursue a long-term goal despite setbacks, while a strategic mindset is looking for efficiency in any goal, short or long term. To be gritty without finding improved ways to achieve your goal is not ideal. By thinking strategically, we can save ourselves a lot of effort and frustration.
Grit is known to be very important for life outcomes. But a study found that grit was mainly unrelated to the strategic mindset.
