Angela Duckworth: "Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance" | Talks at Google - YouTube


Talent is important (a speed of acquiring new skills),
but without perseverance does not help finish what is started.

Spirit of Kaizen, contiguous improvement, (directed) deliberate practice:
  1. Extremely Intentional (very specific goals, problem solving)
  2. 100% Focus (practicing with great effort)
  3. Feedback, ideally immediate and information rich
  4. Reflect and refinement, and try again
