Do you know that when we give ourselves a chance to reflect on how we are thinking, we are actually working more intelligently? The main difference while pursuing a goal is some people will get stuck, while some keep on moving ahead. My presence of mind says that the setback behind some of them getting stuck is in the way they think.
In comparison to grit, to reach a goal, the strategic mindset is essential as it directs the energies in the right direction. Some people think that grit is not the only aspect that can help in achieving your results. Aiming at continuous self-improvement and emotional intelligence is crucial.
While others are there; who think that true grit, strategic mindset, and metacognition are brilliant qualities to be successful. Personally, I scored high on the mindset questionnaire, but I also found it to be interesting while developing new ideas in the kitchen of separating whites from yellow.
Another article by David Robson states that people with meta-cognitive ability can constantly find different ways to improve. I have experienced that it helps people to be more successful, despite experience failure. I would like to say that experimenting with your failure will help in making you more successful.
