Call it deliberate practice, focused resolve, constant repetition, you may call it whatever you like, but I choose to call it the grind. The grind is dressed in street clothes, wears a hard hat and packs a lunch box for a heavy days work! The grind is the long road, a path few choose to travel, marred with obstacles, mountains, valleys and shadows of the many spirits that have given up on their journey. The grind is the best-kept secret to professional success. It never ceases to amaze me that so many people try to bypass the grind to find instant gratification. Coach John Wooden once said: “The quality of the effort is where I found-and continue to find-success.” Success is not pure without sacrifice. For this reason, I am forever grateful for “The Grind.”
