Closing Thought of the Week: Balancing the Grind - E36
Nothing worthwhile is easy. “Success” takes hard work, effort, and more than anything your time. We affectionately refer to this as “the Grind”. As an entrepreneur this means 80 hour weeks, dinner on the run, and missed social or family events. This is hard work, but somewhere in there it becomes your normal. It is what you expect yourself to do and there is a small amount of pride you take in managing the chaos.
I just want to offer a differing viewpoint. Do not get me wrong, I am just as guilty of falling victim to the grind, and I know you have to work to be successful, but what if we were to acknowledge that the truly hard thing to do is take a day off, make time to workout, have a date night, or just be at home and turn off the phone/email?
It is easy to be one dimensional and shut out the world. It takes true sacrifice and skill to do it all. As I always say, we are optometrists, we can do anything and everything!
