Oh, the grind of education.
Yes, I said it, The Grind of Education.
Question for me then becomes, how do you define Grind?
Elementary? Fun for me.
Not a grind
A grind for me at first
9th and 10th grade?
A grind at first
11th and 12th, College?
Not a grind
Selling cell phones at the age of 22, making $20,000 dollars a month, going to school?
Not a grind
An education? FOR SURE.
I learned so much during those years:
- customer service,
- relationship building,
- doing what I said I would do,
- showing up on time,
- losing money,
- spending money,
- exchanging value, (Dollars follow value, people are assets things are not, human life value is the source and creator of property value, and the list goes on and on.)
- committing to a life of lifelong learning.
1993-1999 selling cell phones? A grind in a different way.
2000 starting in the financial services industry? Not a grind.
End of 2007 losing my family’s life savings? Um ya, that was more than a grind at first.
Getting back into the industry in 2011? Not a grind.
What is with all this Grind talk?
Timelines you ask?
We can place any story around any and all parts of our life.
We do, in fact, choose the story; the meaning around any event we see and or experience.
What does Grind mean to you?
- Anything you want it to be.
- Anything you say that it is.
Today for me?
A Grind is a gift.
A gift for me to learn, to grow, to expand, and to create even more with.
Why the substantial change?
“I” started questioning my truths, my stories.
How did this happen?

Great, get to work.
Question your thoughts.
Questions your truths. Yesterday’s truths, today’s and tomorrow’s.
- Is this true?
- How can you really know it’s true?
- How about this one, how useful it that truth? Hmmm, more on that later.
