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'm not complacent. I promise. But this has become a job. Great, right?
It makes me consider my POV on criticism, bad reviews, and unhealthy creative relationships.
All those things are signs that you, me, or anyone is making it happen.
I'd rather have those negative scenarios and being doing it than not.
I know this sounds generic, but I think creatives worry about putting their material out there because of the potential for criticism, but it's worth it.
Wouldn't you rather feel the rush of courage, freedom, and expression than hide on the sidelines because someone who wouldn't even try for themselves might say something?
I wish I had more to say today. I'm happy but not complacent. I want to conquer the world overall, but I'm at peace for the moment.
No big lessons today. Just put on the hard hat and went to work.
Time in the Grind-ies: 1 hour, 41 minutes
Projects: Sending out proposals, my current freelance job
How I felt afterward: Good. I did more today, but I only counted the stuff that would/will/is bring(ing) in the bacon. That honesty makes me feel good.
