Success comes to those who embrace the grind

By Asa Beavers | planning , productivity

What comes to mind when I say the word grind?

For me, the first thing that comes to mind is grinding something up; like a pepper grinder putting some fresh ground pepper on a juicy sirloin. I certainly like the thought of that!

Maybe you thought of grind as a sound. If you’ve ever driven a car with manual transmission, and you miss a shift, you’ll hear a grinding sound. Not pleasant, and not good for the car either.

Another thought that comes to mind is the feeling that, “work was such a grind today”. It connotes things didn’t go well, or it was hard, or it was long. Looking at it in this context definitely gives the word grind a negative feeling.

Putting in quality time to do the hard work necessary to achieve a goal or a new level of success requires a consistent routine. I call it the grind. To help you learn to embrace the grind download this free worksheet.

Why Clarity, Or Lack Of It, Will Make Or Break Your Business

By Asa Beavers | leadership

Shock and Awe…

That’s how I feel about today’s high school students who take advanced placement classes, then graduate with a 4+ grade point average, and move on to college with their major already picked out.

How the heck did they achieve such clarity about what they want to do for a career at such a young age? That’s sure NOT my story!

Nope. For me high school was sports and chasing girls. I was a decent student and got my work done for the most part, but I had no concept at the time that I was supposed to be preparing myself for life after school.

A lack of clarity can create chaos and frustration in your life and business. See why these two emotions can do more to stall your business journey and what you can do...
