343: Grit happens ​

Post thumbnail

Grit is more than hustle, it’s perspective in practice:

  • The market will crash again: Perhaps even at a really bad time. We sometimes forget this happens cyclically, making silly decisions in lieu of consequences. When it does happen, grit happens. Or we’re out of the market.
  • Your campaign will flop: Perhaps even a really important one. We sometimes forget this is always a possibility, thus we forget to prepare for either outcome. When it flops, grit happens. Or we’re out of business.
  • You’ll be let down again: Perhaps even by someone really important to us. We sometimes forget this is part of the human condition, thus we forget to be the bigger person when it happens. When it happens, grit happens. Or we’re down another relationship.

When grit happens, we get to prepare and grow, rather than hitching our happiness to someone else’s pony.

646: Saying Goodbye

If–as the Stoics said–nothing that is natural is evil, perhaps we can ‘get the message’ that the journey is to be relished. Indeed, it’s the only part of our work we ever truly have.

You are creating what matters.

So how can we help you
sell it better & make more impact?
