A word of inspiration on this rainy Seattle Wednesday. Grits were on the menu this week as the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship hosted their annual fundraising breakfast in downtown Seattle, drawing hundreds of leaders in business, politics and education to discuss how hard work, determination and perseverance oftentimes trumps raw skill. Delivering the message of grit ??? over grits ??? was none other than Angela Duckworth, the professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and best-selling author of Grit. Duckworth offered some insights on grit, taking the stage after remarks from Gov. Jay Inslee and telling the more than 900 in attendance why hard-work is so darn important to human development.
