So, how long can you keep this up? The grind.
How long before you burn out?
Well… the thing is, this whole grind thing… it’s only meant to put you in a certain state of mind, which is everything when it comes to doing pretty much anything in life.
And the state of mind that comes with the idea of hard work, of having to fight to get what you want, doesn’t allow you to act all lazy and Netflix and chill your way through life.
But it is more important to work smart.
It is more important to do what you can, when you can, and then become better at it, and do more in less time.
You’re not rewarded for the time you invest. You are rewarded for the value of your time. And you are the only one who gives said time its value.
That being said, how do you avoid burning out?
By having fun, of course.
You need to enjoy the journey. I keep writing this, expecting it to become the eleventh commandment or something. If you do not enjoy the good and the bad of a situation, you’ll run out of motivation, patience, and energy.
