Every month I try and read 2-3 books with a focus on reading books that are on the current or former military reading lists and are focused in on leadership, professional development, and philosophy. The problem is five or six months down the line I’d often forget what book I read and also forget the main points from the book. Writing notes in the margin worked for a while but it was quite a pain to go through all my books and look for notes. Writing notes on the back page worked great but if I gave the book away I lost the notes. I finally started writing all my notes in a mole skin journal, snapping a picture and sharing on DOD Reads. If you would like to share your own notes let me know below.
GRIT BEGETS GRIT
Grit- The Power of Passion and Perseverance – Angela Duckworth
- Grit it not
- Passion and Perseverance
- Hard work in the right direction
- One who enjoys both the chase and capture
- Lower Level Goals Feed Higher Level Goals
Parenting with Grit
Even if an extra circular activity does not lead to pro results that energy and passion can be transferred to something else.
The HARD THING rule
- Everyone must have a hard thing
- You can not quit until it is over
- You choose your own hard thing
Mice that work hard for one pellet of food do better on complex mazes
