The UnGrind

This week, The Grind focuses on some existential questions in this episode as Joey and Jason contemplate the future of the podcast itself. The guys start off by talking about the general feasibility of podcasting as a money-making tool and whether or not Joey and Jason can see a path for The Grind to reach that goal. They also reflect on the fact that most small businesses don’t make it 2 years, meaning it already has more longevity than most start-ups. Jason and Joey discuss how they have continued to learn by producing the show and they critique the lack of sufficient analytics on the...

“Always use laughter, fun and humour daily, no matter what, don’t take things to seriously”.   This week on the Grind we join Joey amidst a week of no coffee, and a month of no social media. Joey is considering a name change for the podcast. The boys are also considering the meaning of ‘the grind’ itself. What is it? How often should you take breaks? And where are the areas in your life that you can’t use ‘The Grind’ philosophy? These are questions Joey and Jason often consider on the podcast, but today they focus on why you should CHOOSE to enjoy life whenever possible...

More Episodes

This week’s episode is a free-flowing conversation between Joey and Jason about ‘Brules’ or bullshit rules. The subject of society’s expectations and unquestioned traditional ideas can be expansive topic to cover, Joey and Jason put it in the context of self-improvement so as to be more manageable. The first aspect Joey brings up is about the things we are not supposed to share about ourselves i.e. money or personal matters, and how we can attempt to let go of some of that stigma. The guys then discuss the process of separating yourself from your emotions, implementing self-awareness in the moment and when to internalise emotional reactions for self-reflection.

 

Jason talks about the key to happiness being self-discipline and how that is inextricably linked to avoiding temptation. Joey mentions how societal programming bears most of the blame for our difficulties in that regard and brings up the example of Mowgli from ‘the Jungle Book’. His innocence versus the archetypes that are presented to his character from society serve as a great universal metaphor for growing up. After discussing the subjective nature of normality, Jason and Joey really hit home the point that bad habits lead to diminishing options.

 

Joey talks a bit about why he deleted most of his social media presence and people’s disbelief when he tells them. The guys then move on to Jason’s eighty-hour work week and whether Jason can improve his situation with a change in mindset and outlook. Jason talks about the pressure to step up and perform that owning a business forces upon you and Joey asks Jason to define what ‘doing what it takes’ means to him. Finally, the guys talk about the importance of calling your friends out on their bullshit and they remind us to question whether each action you take brings you closer to fulfilment. Grind on
