Who doesn’t, right? But while you’ve done all the talking (and some writing), walking the talk seems to be the most difficult task to accomplish.

There are a lot of how-to articles and self-help manuals around the Web, and not one gives you that motivational kick to start working through your to-do list. Enters Partners in Grind.

However, in a system where you are honest about your goals, expectations, and more importantly, your progress, it can be a completely different ball game. After all, you and your partner in grind set the same goals and both of you need to see it through—whether by cheering each other on or competing against one another.
