I borrowed this phrase from one of my favorite NBA players, Isaiah Thomas. Isaiah is currently coming back from a hip injury and “the slow grind” is something he talks about constantly to keep him going. The slow grind is something I believe translates to anything in life. If you want something you can expect it to take time to manifest. Much more time than anyone would want it to, but when you fall in love with the process, that time in between is much more enjoyable. You end up getting lost in the journey. And then the journey ends up better than the destination you were trying to get to.
“Life is a journey, not a destination.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
