Idiom : “NOSE TO THE GRINDSTONE”

A useful expression: ”Nose to the grindstone” – meaning to stay intensely focused, highly concentrated on a job or a task, not giving up until completed.

Example: ”We’ve got a busy work week ahead, with a lot to do. Everyone will have to keep their nose to the grindstone until the job is finished.”

Example: ”I have final exams coming up this month at school. I’m very nervous, but if I keep my nose to the grindstone and study hard I believe I will pass with good grades.”

Take care everyone…& be sure to take your nose OFF the grindstone once in a while…chat with a friend, have a cup of coffee, exhale & find time to smell the roses! :-)…Cindy
