“Race your strengths and train your weaknesses” to accomplish your goals. Angela Duckworth on Green Connections Radio Has anyone ever told you that you're "talented" or "not talented"? What does that mean and does it matter? Listen to best-selling author of "Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance," Angela Duckworth, Ph.D. in this inspiring conversation with Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson about grit, talent, strengths, weaknesses and strategies to achieve your goals. Duckworth's TED Talk has nearly 15 million views! You'll hear: What "talent" is and why it's over-rated. Why having a personal compass is crucial for high achievers, to get through the potholes of life. How to get (and give) feedback in real time, make it "normal," and why. Why self-compassion and self-talk are especially critical for innovators and high-achievers. How to change careers at any age and stage. Why you also need creativity, emotional intelligence, generosity, gratitude and kindness. And soooooo much more! "One important thing that distinguishes just kind of random, mind-wandering, day-dreaming from genuine creativity or innovation is that, that new idea... also has to be useful."
