8:31 am
"usa today" says three earth-like plan etds might be the most promising source of life outside our solar system. an artist envisions looking at the other two. they circle a dwarf star about 40 light years away from earth. scientists will now try to determine if the planets have the right combination of water and warmth to support life. entertainment weekly says game of thrones actor kit harrington apologizing to fans. spoiler alert -- i haven't seen sunday's episode. i did read the paper this morning so now i know. after his death last season, fans were left guessing the fate of his character, john snow. in the new season 6, he was brought back to life. max here today? >> yeah. >> we knew it. harrington says he's sorry for lying to keep his resurrection a secret. the secret code name for lord commander was used referring the character on set and let me just say, as the game of thrones fan,
8:32 am
hallelujah! we love john snow. >> this is good? >> good guy. >> i keep saying -- >> i know. >> very excited. very excited. >> i say i'll catch up. >> how many years? >> how many seasons? >> catch up. >> i think we're in season four or five. >> i hear great things about it. >> six? >> "game of thrones" expert. she's got it at the table. providence journal reports on a wreckage of a ship. researchers think they found the spot where james cook's endeavor went down. the british deliberately sank it in the revolutionary war. before the war, he sailed around the world and claimed australia for the british crown. what drives a person to become successful? that question fuels the research of psychologist angela duckworth. the 2013 macarthur genius grant fellow learned that grit is the best sign. she explained this in her popular ted talk. >> one characteristic emerged as
8:33 am
a significant predictor of success. and it wasn't social intelligence. it wasn't good looks. physical health. and it wasn't iq. it was grit. grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. grit is having stamina. grit is sticking with your future. day in, day out. not just for the week. not just for the month. but for years. and working really hard to make that future a reality. >> angela duckworth's first book "grit" is published by scribner a division of cbs. good morning. so great to meet you. i've been reading about your work for a while. >> thank you. >> so this is terrific. we praise talent. we have shows called "america's got talent" but what's more important in success, talent or effort? >> i think overrate talent in
8:34 am
our society. we're obsessed with whether our kids are picked for the gifted and talented program. what matters in the long run is sticking with things and working daily to get better at them. >> so what do gritty people do specifically? >> so, gritty people do at least four things. one is rather than skipping around in their interests, you know, oh, i'll click over here and it will be something new, they deepen their interest. the second thing is submit themselves to the hardest kind of practice, deliberate practice and makes you befrter which is largely working on the weaknesses with feedback. the third thing they do is they find some other centered purpose. even when you study people gritty and seemingly do selfish things like wine tasting or, you know, an individual sport where they're the one who wins the gold medal, they're actually extraordinarily other center and think about how their work is important to other people than them and finally knocked down they get up again.
8:35 am
they're resilient. >> you said fall down seven and get up eight. >> there's an expression in japan, fall seven, rise eight. truly if i got a tattoo an i'm not that's what i would get. >> why not? >> the other day charlie said he was thinking about getting a tattoo. >> here's my question. does it have anything to do with social economic group? born poor more likely to have the grit to understand that that's the way you pull yourself up by your bootstraps? >> people asked me this question on both sides f. you're wealthy are you more likely to be gritty or from a disadvantaged background more likely to be gritty? i haven't examined that myself in my data but from working with kids from across the socio economic spectrum, people are more than the same than different and never met someone who said because i was born in this situation i didn't need to work hard. >> are colleges looking more and more at grit and so it's called
8:36 am
the x-factor rather than simply test scores and iq scores. >> one of the people i interviewed for my book is my own college admissions officer bill fitzsimmons and still the director of admissions for harvard university and if you ask what do colleges want? they say kids that work hard and have a passion about something, not just faking the way through school, looking like they do. checking off boxes. i did this, i did this, i did this. but truly and in sincere way trying to get better at something they care about. >> you say gritty people don't quit and then you say for kids sometimes you should quit. seems a contradiction. help me understand what point you're mablging. >> early in life, you don't know what you want to do and i don't know about you guys for me it took me until i was 32 to figure out i wanted to be a psychologist and a psychologist to help improve the lives of kids. before 32 i was quitting things, quitting being a speechwriting
8:37 am
intern for the white house, quitting the job as a consultant, quitting being a teacher in the classroom. importantly, in that quitting i was trying to find something. it wasn't just quitting for quitting's sake but to find something that i could be loyal to for the rest of my life and i finally did find that. >> we all love sports so much at this table and we talk about it a lot and i think looking at great athletes we think, wow, they were born with a natural talent but you actually go through studies including one called the mundanity of excellence but it's a series of small achievements. >> sports is such a great example because if you turn on a sports broadcast you will hear the word talent within a minute. right? we just love to anoint our most successful athletes as prodigiously talented and a thing i learned in my research from talking to a sociologist living with swim teams for six years, all the way from club team around the corner to
8:38 am
olympic hopefuls and the summary conclusion of his work is that excellence really is mundane. it's a thousand little things. each of which you could practice, each of which you can improve upon. you put them together and it's dazzling. >> but some people do have more eye/hand coordination than others. >> speaking perhaps of someone you know? yeah. >> no, no. i think it's a fact some people have a skill they're born with. but then those achieving the ultimate are those that exercise that particular skill. >> quickly, can you teach grit? >> yeah. i would say this. while we are not all born with the same amount of talent for different things, i do believe grit is enormously important and absolutely teachable. >> all right. such a great book. thank you so much. and "grit" goes on sale today. to take the scale quiz, go to cbs this we took the quiz. we'll tell you and share with you our results, as well.
