WHAT IS GRIT?

When it comes to GRIT, what matters more, Quantity or Quality?
Why not measure and grow both?
GRIT is the defining element in what it takes to realize your most important and rewarding ambitions. If AQ is about defense — how you respond to whatever comes your way — GRIT is about offense. It defines the degree, duration, and quality of effort you invest to make good things happen.
