This week is all about The Grit Required to Thrive. For some, the adrenaline rush of preparing for the changing market has worn off. For others, that rush is just beginning. Either way, now’s the time for the continuous, focused burn. This is a marathon (with a series of sprints built into it). As you’re organizing the week(s) ahead, consider 4 buckets… we call them the 4Ps.
- Productivity (lead gen, marketing)
- Projects (anything with an end date)
- People (internal and external)
- Personal (you, outside of work)

What We’re Reading
Grit is not talent.
Grit is not luck.
Grit is not how intensely, for the moment, you want something.
Grit IS… a goal you care about so much that it organizes and gives meaning to almost everything you do… and holding steadfast to that goa
What it means to by Gritty
To be gritty, in my view, is to have passion and perseverance about something in your life. This doesn’t mean that you necessarily engage in all possible pursuits with equivalent passion and perseverance. And indeed, the limits of time and energy suggest that focusing on one thing means focusing less on others.
You can’t pursue becoming a great pianist and at the same time a great mathematician, and a great sprinter and chef and philosopher…But it’s also true, I think, that to be gritty means to pursue something with consistency of interest and effort. Some people choose not to pursue anything in a committed way, and that, to me, is lack of grit.- Angela Duckworth
