Grit for Writers

It Takes Grit

In my Education/Success Course, we talk about “grit.”  To finish college or finish writing books, it takes effort day in and day out to finish. To reach your goals, you have to be decisive, making the decision to stick it out even when you’re too tired, you don’t feel like it, or you’re chasing after time.

Books don’t write themselves;

You have to do it.

So, if you haven’t done it today, WRITE.

It isn’t about how long you write.

It’s THAT you write.

“Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is sticking with your future. Not just for the week. Not just for the month, but for years, working really hard to make that future a reality. Grit is living life like a marathon not a sprint (Duckworth, Angela: Grit: The Power of Perseverance).”
