The Sooner You Wash The Rocks...

Friday night I was watching the newest episode of one of my favorite reality TV shows, “It’s the Return of Freddy Dodge”, Gold Rush, Discovery. As usual, one of the more verbally colorful members of the cast, Tony Beets, was gracing the viewers with an onslaught of foul language fit for more “BEEPS” than a traffic jam at the intersection 41st Street and Louise Avenue during rush hour. It truly is impressive just how creative this man is with one simple four-letter word.

During a rare moment of comprehension of Tony’s dialogue, he shared a nugget that resonated with me. Tony calmly explained, “The sooner you start washing the rocks, the sooner you can get some gold in the box.”

Tony is referencing the importance of one of the more mundane steps in the gold mining process. He reminds us that before you can see the treasure in your coffer – the fruits of your labor – you must first sacrifice through the daily grind.

What is it you strive for? What is your gold in the box? It is tempting to look for the shortcut to reach your goals. We must remember to be thankful for the process of the daily grind. Appreciate the repetition of menial daily tasks, force yourself out of your comfort zone, pick up the phone and make that cold call, and always welcome additional education for a deeper understanding of your profession or purpose. Start washing the rocks so you can get some gold in the box!
