  • Today’s Monday Mindset: Stop the Grind

    If you’re doing what you love, it shouldn’t feel like a grind at all. But for some reason in the basketball world, maybe the sports world over, we talk about grinding all the time.

    But when you’re doing what you love, it’s not something you have to force or push yourself to do. That’s grinding.

    You get pulled into it because of your love and your joy in doing the work. If you’re training and it’s a lot of grinding, you either need to change how you’re training. Possibly ever stop training altogether and go find your love for the game again.

    For those of you in a career, find your love for what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Then it’ll never be a grind.

    When we grind, we tend to not take care of our bodies. We tend to not get the rest and sleep we need. We tend to not give others the time and attention they need, especially our loved ones.

    I think you ought to remove the word “grind” from your vocabulary. Sure, some people need to work harder. Those who are already working hard, and you know if you are, don’t try and find your next level of working hard. Work smarter instead.

    You don’t have to grind to be successful.

    Get pulled by your inspiration and spend the time needed to rest, recover, take care of your wellbeing. Spend time with loved ones and friends. You don’t need the grind. Pursue your love.

    That’s your Monday Mindset.
