TED Talk: Grit

Creative Electives

This month’s SLO is grit, a character trait that demonstrates strength of will. People with grit show a passion and perseverance for long-term goals, as many things require tenacity.

To gauge how gritty you are at this point in your life, consider whether you identify with the following statements:

  • I enjoy projects that take years to complete.
  • I am working toward a very long-term goal.
  • What I do each day is connected to my deepest personal values.
  • There is at least one subject or activity that I never get bored of thinking about.
  • Setbacks don’t discourage me for long.
  • I am a hard worker.
  • I finish whatever I begin.
  • I never stop working to improve.
