I like the idea of "striving." I read Daymond John's "Rise and Grind" a few years ago. My fiancée met him during a venture capital program and gave me the book.

John's path is certainly impressive and I have nothing but admiration of his accomplishments and drive, but man, do I dislike the term "Grind."

To me, people are not made to "grind." There's nothing inspirational about grinding out wins in games, although coffee grinds are important.

Thanks for brining a different perspective to working to achieve. Cheers!

Loved this one, Stew. I’m a striver to my bones but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
