“Nothing can substitute for just plain hard work. I had to put in the time to get back. And it was a grind. It meant training and sweating every day. But I was completely committed to working out to prove to myself that I still could do it.”
There is almost nothing better than the feeling of accomplishment when you complete some momentous, all encompassing objective. The type of project where it took 100% of your effort and commitment. These are the ones where during the work it is so hard that you are just gutting it out, getting it done, never willing to compromise and deliver less than what you know you are capable of doing.
There might be almost no better feeling, but it only works to motivate you in the future if you take the time to reflect, learn, celebrate success, and then reset your head for the next one. I have to remind myself of this all the time as I am likely to jump from one all-encompassing thing to the next. Take a few minutes today to pause, reflect, breathe.
Then go grind it out and get it done…
