The Hard Thing Rule

Another thoughtful Monday Morning Stretch from Katherine Eitel:

Angela Duckworth, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania and the author of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance submits that there is a great deal of virtue and momentum gained by doing the hard things. In a boatload of research, she found that natural ability had much less to do with success than with what she calls “grit” which she defines as a combination of passion and perseverance in the pursuit of a long-term goal. She cited example after example of students, athletes, actors, and business tycoons who had the “grit” to persevere through the hard things and hard parts of the journey toward their dreams.

Good advice for life in general. There is a dental technology angle as well. I find that a great many dental offices fail to take advantage of digital technology because they simply lack the will to make the next move.
