Angela Lee Duckworth changed her career from management consultant to teacher to psychologist. As a motivational psychologist studying predictors of success in various contexts, she found grit to be a significant predictor of success. She went on to study grit and how to develop grit. She suggested that the growth mindset is an important way to develop grit. In a world disrupted when the future is so uncertain, grit in the things we do today in adapting to changing realities alone and yet together with others can make a big difference.
