Spring 2017 | "Grit" | Issue No. 14

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, grit in the context of behavior is defined as “firmness of character; indomitable spirit.” If courage is the ability to rise to the challenge, then will is the determination to see it to the end. What does it take to make it in a world that doesn’t always care about you? Obviously, stick-to-itiveness is a trait of overachievers, so, in order to improve upon our lives, should the rest us invest more energy toward heightening our own levels of grit? Successful people are celebrated, and it’s hard not to aspire to reach their ranks. Ask yourself, though, how do you define success? Your definition may differ greatly from the variety of success society uses to separate the winners from the losers and the gritty from the listless. In this issue of Art+Design join us as we explore stories that tell of spirited people determined to make their mark on and in this world we live in.
