In summary, the passion and persistence of grit motivates and carries us over rough seas like a well-made surfboard. We can think of an absence of effort like a crack in our surfboard that needs repair.
Commitment to our values, faiths, and philosophies also take time, such as attending religious or political meetings. How much time we devote to these areas is often a matter of the strengths of our convictions.
A need is something you have to do. A want is something you would like to do. I often confuse them. There are days when I take my needs for granted and sacrifice them at the expense of my wants.
