Day 14: Ugh, just please

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.
