Welcome to Friday (for my fellow grinders? Welcome to another day)!
This update I would think would be an important and essential update for any creative or entrepreneur but that’s just me… So watch and let me know how you feel about it!
Thanks for stopping by Real Talk 2.0 and have an amazing rest of your day!
Last week for all intents and purposes was just a blur! Getting to the point where days would just roll into one another! The only thing standing out was “what do I need to work on today”! And then by noon I am asking Latif “What day of the week is it”?
Starting to realize that the name we assign to the day of the week is not as important as what we got done on that day!
The hustle for us is a 7 days a week/24 hours a day/365 days a year time investment! No real breaks, just moving forward to our goals until our brains begin to lock up and we have no choice but to get some rest. Just so we can re-charge our mental batteries! is it painful to live out life that way? At times it is. Is it frustrating to live this type of existence? Ummm yeah! Nothing like watching everyone you know posting about all the fun and relaxation they are having and we are trying to remember… Did you edit that video? Did you do updates to the site? Did you edit those pictures…
We do have a few markers so that we do not completely get lost…
Of course there is Real Talk 2.0 Monday Edition
Latif has her Sunday Update on inoj Beautiful.
We both have posts to put up every morning Monday – Friday on our blogs
Exercise Videos on Monday and Friday for Inoj
And then we have to figure out how to squeeze everything else into the week.
Is this a good way to live life? Probably not. Will it get us to where we want to be? More than likely yes! We are slowly finding out (some would say late in the game) that the speed that you reach your goals is intricately tied to the amount of grind you put into those goals
Sometimes all that fun and excitement (and overrated rest) will maybe help you in figuring out which day of the week it is and you might be able to walk away whenever you want to to go hang out and party…
But how is that helping you reach your goals?
The weekend is finally over! Some of us worked towards our goals… And some of us thought about what we could have done if this darn pandemic was not in the way!
I wanted to recognize 2 people who for some strange reason are always doing something to get to the next level, instead of always selfishly talking about what ‘I am doing’ on MY blog (sarcastic humor right there).
First off I wanted to talk about my best friend, my partner in crime, my soulmate, the mother of my children and my cohort in our bid to take over the universe Latif!
Not only is she working with our daughters to create an all natural make-up line, she also does a video blog on you tube! But she has now decided to do a workout series to not only chronicle her journey but to assist other woman in getting more healthy and to do the thing that 75% of woman struggle with… Losing weight! A prime example of putting ones self out there to assist others. Make sure you check out her channel here!
Then you have my long time friend and DJ partner from back in the day. DJ GMF of Project Sounds! What can I say about this brother besides he is what grinding is all about!
Since GMF and myself have linked back up from being out of touch for a few years he has somehow re-ignited that energy all Native New Yorkers have, ‘grind until you are exhausted… And then grind some more! What can I say about this brother! He has a clothing line! Top NYC DJ! and has a Radio Show every Friday on EAJ radio!?! (Check it out here every Friday night at 8PM Eastern Time)
These two people have helped me in re-examining my goals and by default have helped me push forward in realizing my potential.
When you have people in your life like these two? You have no choice but to move to the next level. Keep people like this close to you at all costs and you might spend your weekends getting your grind on instead of being focused on hanging out and partying or re-living the memories of ‘turning up’ pre-pandemic!
