Happy New Year!

2022 might not be starting how we all had hoped, but that also makes this time ripe for learning some grit and growth mindset skills. As a continuation of the Annual Convention presentation on Grit & Growth Mindset, AWLA is forming a Grit Group to complete the ABA’s 21 Day Grit and Growth Mindset Project. 

This project is open to all AWLA members, and all non-members who attended the AWLA Convention in November 2021.

Below is our vision for the program – but please note – this is supposed to be helpful!  This challenge is not intended to add stress to your life.  So, we invite you to tailor this journey to your needs.  We’ll provide the tools and outlets for conversation and support, but be involved as much or as little as are comfortable and possible for you.


  • We will officially start on Tuesday, January 18th.We will not meet that day, but this is when you should complete the pre-work and is considered Day 1 (more info about tasks in Materials below)
  • We will host weekly Zoom meetings for those who would like to debrief or chat with us about how the week went. 
  • The weekly debriefing meetings will be held every Thursday at 4:00 pm. We ask that you register in advance for each Thursday meeting you want to attend.
  • These meetings will start and end on time and will last no longer than 30 minutes.
  • Take weekends off. Self-care. Enough said.


  • Please find below a link to the “21 Day Grit and Growth Mindset Project.” This is all you need for the program and in it are links for the short daily tasks.
  • Pre-work: If you have not taken the Grit Self-Assessment, please follow the link that is listed before Day 1.  Lex and Elizabeth have done it and we promise that it takes less than 5 minutes.


  • No one wants his or her inbox flooded with emails, so we are limiting our email communication with the group to once per week. We will let you know which assignments we’re covering that week, and we may include thoughts from the previous week’s Zoom debrief.
  • Feel free to reach out to us individually if you have insights, comments, or feedback.

More About Meetings

  • As mentioned above, we will have weekly meetings until we have completed all 21 tasks.
  • We do respectfully ask that you have your camera on during the meeting.
  • Do not feel obligated to chat during the meeting, you can participate as much or as little as you like.
  • If you miss a meeting, please feel comfortable joining the next week.  This is intended to be an inviting space.
  • Please register in advance for the Thursday meeting - even if it's right before you join the meeting!

Closing Thoughts

We are excited to go through this program with all of you.  We think that everyone will be able to benefit from some, part, or all of the program.  We look forward to having engaging conversations with you and connecting.
