How hard are you working? I mean, really working.
Not just working hard… but working smart?
“Welcome to the grind.”
Sometimes it’s tough to get up and write. Or simply to square off with the keyboard at any time of day.
Athletes have coaches. We, on the other hand, are quite alone with the task at hand.
And so I offer the following. One of the reasons to watch it is the writing… it’s stellar. Another is to see beyond the specificity of its target audience — competitive swimmers — and apply it to what YOU do.
These principles know no target audience. They are universal, and unforgiving. If you think writing is a gentle art… maybe. But publishing, competing for readers, isn’t.
You are seeking excellence. There are about 100,000 other writers out there seeking the same, and they are competing for YOUR publishing slot.
So the question becomes… what are YOU going to do about it?
Get motivated… HERE.
Welcome to the grind.
Rise and shine.
