Dublin Jerome High School
September 22, 2023 | Discipline over Default
A message from me...
This week, like many of you I have entered The Grind. Throughout different times over the year we all have those spaces that are difficult. There is a way for us to deal with The Grind. It is simple for me to type but difficult to do in practice.
Here are 3 disciplined steps we can take to help when we are in The Grind:
- Work the Process, don't resist
- Invest the Time, don't resent
- Solve problems, don't complain
Remember the bigger the challenge or goal the more the important the mindset.
Let's do the work!
