For those of you who have never had me as a boss or have never talked to me at all, good hustle is something that is almost always on my mind, and therefore, i am almost always talking about it.
So, what is it?
Several years ago i found a list on the internet created by Meg Draws that changed my life. On one side it said "good hustle" and listed: If you think a thing should exist, build it.
If you don’t how to do a thing, figure it out.
Failed? No problem, Next Idea. “I get to”… Grabbing opportunities
Can’t stop learning
On the other side it said "bad hustle" and listed:
Sleeplessness as a badge of honor
Health/Wellness put on hold
Friends/ Family put on hold
Deadline bullies “I had to”
Busy for the sake of busy.
In american life, and esp in american entrepreneurial life, recognizing the differences between these two and practicing the good list as much as possible is so crucial for sustained livlihood ive found.
Last night, i was lucky enough to connect with @thisischanelle
, one of the most brilliant women i could hope to know, and she gifted me this patch and i cried.
Practice the good shit, everyone
