Work - noun - exertion or effort directed to produce or accomplish something; labor; toil.
In order for us to reach our goals it will most definitely take some work. It may even take a LOT of work. Writing is hard work. It isn't physical, where you end up limping around from straining a thigh muscle while dead lifting 250 pounds. It's mental work. The kind that has you gnashing your teeth or reaching for a glass of wine after slamming your laptop closed. It's a marathon of thoughts and puzzles.
I will explore more about work in my newsletter, plus I'll have little giveaways each week for those of you who participate in defining your year with me. So, be sure to subscribe to get the next step in defining our work of 2019.
