Effort beats intelligence

Guess what parents? Those Baby Einstein toys you’re giving your kids may make them smarter, but if you don’t teach them how to work hard, it may all be for naught. Scientific American cites three decades of research and concludes:

“Teaching people to have a growth mindset, which encourages a focus on effort, rather than intelligence or talent, produces high achievers in school and life.”

Most of the contractors I know could have told you the same thing. Especially Equipment World’s Contractor of the Year last year, Alan Bracken, and this year’s winner Larry Davis.
