Grit is the disposition to pursue very long-term goals with passion and perseverance. And I want to emphasize the stamina quality of grit. Grit is sticking with things over the long term and then working very hard at it.
Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint.
Quote of the week - 04/03/2014
Name is Ena Bacanovic, but Ruby for everyone. 22 years old, currently living and working in Zagreb / Croatia. My first encounter with graphic design was back in the days of elementary school, in art class, and since then, design is something that I do every day. I love making simple and clean things that have complicated stories behind them, with a dose of humor, if possible. When I’m not on the computer working on a new projects or sleeping, I play drums in a female band Punčke and run The Design Blog.
