Sitting out here in the park, getting through another workout in the heat of afternoon (yes, Charles, I don’t know how I do it either but I do!) the very LAST thing I feel like doing is writing this to you. Cant it wait until a nice shower back home?

Not owning a laptop – waiting for eons for the right one. All this might sound crazy. Probably is, even more so for a voracious writer like me. One that hates dumbphones!

Speaking of which, the daughters expression today after the ex finally forced her off the dumbphone onto the school books she’s been avoiding for so long. Daggers shooting out of her eyes. That scowl. Priceless!

Sitting here after a smoke I really don’t want to do more pull-ups. My entire upper body hurts.

But I will.

It’s a commitment to myself, a promise to grind forever.

I’ve got tons of issues that need resolving.

But right now I feel so at peace none of that matters.

That don’t mean the issues don’t matter.

Of course they do.

But exhausted as I am, the keys to my ultimate success at everything I take up – and yet another reason that I didn’t even know when I did it – for the years of torturous grind in the hill in horribly hot weather, grade three typhoons etc – the subconscious mind.

The way you activate your subconscious mind and get it to solve problems is to pass the message on and let go.

You do that by focusing on other things after a prolonged period of thought on the problem.

You let go.

This is where most fail. There is a very fine line between obsessing and over obsessing. Or overthinking as Marc the African Silverback Gorilla termed it once.

Find it.

The way you do , the easiest way at least is to grind your self into a state of exhaustion work wise. Mentally. Physically. Every which way.

You’ll be too exhausted to think at all.

And that, my friend is when the subconscious mind takes over and works it’s magic.

That’s the connection between the relentless, unforgiving grind true doers out themselves through very willingly and their nigh stupendous success at all they do.

There’s no fucking hack.


Stay hard.
