The Grind-ies are the gravelly, down and dirty, mentally painful, zero-to-something thinking, learning, and producing that it takes to create something of your own. The Grind-ies Challenge is a 30 day pursuit to enter the Grind-ies mindset on a regular basis and document the experience.
I did not want to enter the Grind-ies mindset today.
It was Sunday and sunny; my mind was begging for a break.
I gave myself a rest, a burrito, then grabbed my hardhat, lunch pail and dove in like a working man.
I'm happy I did now, but man, do I need a reprieve from my mind working like an athlete's body.
Please forgive me for these getting shorter. I hope you'll still find the shorter content an engine for your Grind-ies plow to shovel out your blocks of resistance.
For the first time since being quarantined, I'm seriously considering not going back to my job. This is my shot. All I have to do is keep shopping for freelance gigs.
I'm feeling it.
Get at me.
Time in the Grind-ies: 1 hour, 33 minutes
Projects: work-for-hire gig
How I felt afterward: Exhausted. I need a break.
