The daily “Grind” is a mindset that you need to fix by empowering people and process. Trevor Mauch
There has been a lot of social media presence around grinding it out. Working 4 am to 8 pm. Glorifying the badge of honor or dishonor that I like to call the “Grind.”
The grind is a mindset, not an activity that you should willingly try to sustain and promote.
If you’re an entrepreneur and you’re grinding all of the time, you’re going to eventually break. Just like a cogwheel. If a cogwheel is constantly being overworked and under pressure, it’s going to fail.
Instead, shift that thought to building a business based on hard work, people, and process.
On this episode of the CarrotCast, I’m going to talk about my personal grinding experiences and how you can escape before you regret it.
