Hustle Till It Hurts

The Hustle is Real

Just a few words about what the hustle means to me and why it’s become a bigger part of my life recently.

A man by the name Gary Vaynerchuck is a big reason I’m upping my game. From watching this guy work I’ve realized there is a lot more we can do every day to increase how much we get done. It’s not about being a work-a-holic, or loving work more than the people you interact with. It’s about loving what you do to the point that 18 hours just seems normal. The ‘daily grind’ become the ‘daily hustle’. It becomes a part of who you are. From what I’ve seen people have a lot of respect for those who accomplish a lot and are able to back it up.

So what am I doing?

From studying myself I’ve realized it takes me a while to adopt new behaviors. In a 3 month period I can improve and make changes to who I am. Improve my skill level and take on more responsibilities. I learn better by watching what others do, so I’m watching people who hustle and taking what they do to adapt it to my lifestyle.

Ya’ll obviously know that I currently work night shift and after a 14 hour work shift I don’t feel much like doing anything. Therefore I’ve set myself up to do work while that 14 hour day is progressing.

Where am I on my off days?

I haven’t added up the hours but I’m no where near 14 hours. Building up some grit to work for 14 hours a day on my ‘days off’ will be the hardest part. Yet I know if I worked 14 hour days I would propel myself so far ahead of where I am today I can’t even visualize it.

What about you? Are you a working entrepreneur? Maybe you work best at night, but how long are your work days?

I wonder what my world would look like if I worked every day 14 hours a day 7 days a week.

Where can you see yourself being if you worked that hard? Check out a day in Gary’s life below and comment on what you think your life would look like if you did that.
