“Grit is having the courage to push through, no matter what the obstacles are, because it’s worth it.” – Chris Morris
So I was invited to a voice of the employee meeting at work the other day which is a chance to express your feelings in the workplace with upper leadership. The topic chosen for this meeting was motivation and purpose. The meeting started off with a TED talk about motivation and grit. It was found that having grit is actually the common factor between all successful people. Not talent, not IQ, not physicality; just grit. This was interesting to me because I shared how I lost sight of my goals and motivation among the pandemic and was stuck in a cycle of just doing the bare minimum. I stopped overachieving not just for the company, but for myself as well. I let myself down and lost my motivation. I thought this was interesting to share since having grit and determination has never really had a negative impact in my life. I think starting to add more grit within my everyday will help me in the long run. Maybe it’ll help you as well… Chris Morris seems to think so!
Item 342 of 360+
Today’s item is one of my old caps that I stopped wearing a while ago. I tend to hold onto things that are still in good shape, even if I never use them any longer. This is something I’ve changed my outlook on these past 342 days.
