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.
Day 20. I mean, a new habit has definitely been adopted.
This challenge is difficult—the focus, the discipline, but it was worth it because it directed me right where I needed to go.
I don't have a major breakthrough today, just another day of head-down effort.
I'm jonesin' to read some Bukowski and write some stuff that doesn't need to make sense.
I'm taking this feeling of accomplishment and having some creative fun tonight.
Day 20 Time in the Grind-ies: 2 hours, 11 minutes
Projects: freelance gig
How I felt afterward: Like I deserved the reward of playing around with some creativity. Eh?
