"All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty." Proverbs 14:23
I hear many people talk about being in the "grind" of life or they are "grinding" doing the work of building their business or career. Unfortunately most people talk more than they actually work, because you shouldn't be "grinding" year after year with minimal results to show for it. The truth is if you're grinding but not growing then you're just wasting your time.
Profitable grinding should result in character development not just the investment of time, sweat, and tears. Grinding should be making you stronger. You should be learning from your mistakes, not continually repeating past failures. Your knowledge and expertise should be expanding. Your wisdom should be increasing. Your efforts should become more efficient over time. Your plans should be more sound. You should be getting more disciplined. Grinding should be enhancing your value.

Don't use "grinding" as an excuse for complacency. Make sure you're getting better at what you do versus simply becoming an expert in unchanged mediocrity.
