I can’t remember what I was reading the other day when I came across the phrase “the 9 to 5 grind”.
When I read that, I thought, “Man. Join the club….tell me about a grind”
When I thought about it some more, I realized that “9 to 5” sounded like a pretty good deal.
Who gets to live a life of such luxury?
Try a 7 to 6 grind.
You just try that for a while and then see how much you need to complain about a 9 to 5 “grind”.
Grind my A**,
(I’m just fooling around….my life is good even if my day is long….)
And….somewhere….somebody….is thinking, “What?!! Complaining about a 7 to 6 schedule? Try a 5 AM to 11…PM schedule?!! Or…even worse….a schedule where they (the man) doesn’t even let you go to sleep?!! TRY THAT ON FOR SIZE!! YOU JUST TRY SOMETHING LIKE THAT, YOU WHINER!!”
I’ll figure out a way to see the “greener grass” no matter how nice my current situation is.
I’m just “that way“.
Here’s a bunch of folks living a different way.
Maybe “strangely appealing”….but not strange.
Take me to the island….I’ll build a yurt.
Twist my arm.
