July Happenings | Madefor



We are back with another Monthly Madefor Happenings blog, your source for last month's wrap-up, and not-to-miss happenings coming up in July.


💭 A Thought From Our Co-Founder Pat...

“If I had to choose between greatness and goodness, I’d choose goodness first.”
- Dr. Angela Duckworth


You don’t always need to see the finish line to make progress.


Almost ten years ago, I sat in the back of an undergraduate class that Angela was teaching purely because I was curious about her research on grit. In time, that curiosity turned into passion, fueling the perseverance that eventually resulted in Madefor.


Stay curious and kind—you might surprise yourself by how far you can go.

💪 Gain a Grittier Mindset

Pat sat down with world renowned research psychologist, professor, and best-selling author, Angela Duckworth PhD, to discuss her research advancing the scientific insights that help us thrive. Angela talked about grit, the connection between grit and happiness, the benefits of being goal-driven, and how talent and skills are not mutually exclusive to one another. 


Angela Duckworth on the connection between happiness and grit: 

"Grit is having long term goals that are identity driven. It’s not an accident that happiness and grit are correlated."
