The Sad Truth About the 24/7 Hustle Movement

by | Jun 1, 2021 | Blog, Make More Work Less, Right On Time Podcast

I have some real talk for you right now.

And it may sound far-fetched and you may feel just a little bit of resistance to hearing it, but here it comes: People making 10x more than you… aren’t working 10x harder.

I know that goes against the Instagram ‘Hustle’ mindset you’re so used to seeing. It goes against everything your parents said about working as hard as you can. It goes against the societal belief that you have to be actively working and busy all… the… time… in order to be deserving of wealth.

But it’s 100% true.

People making 10x more than you aren’t working 10x harder. And “busy” is not the badge of honor that everyone thinks it is.

All of the leaders and modern CEOs that I admire have time and space for themselves and the people they care about, because they build that space into their business. Vacations… evenings… maybe even a spa afternoon here or there.

And you can too.

There is a design that goes into leading and growing a business like yours, in a way that allows you to have financial success and time freedom. 

Yes, you will still have moments of hustle — launch preparation, seasonal rushes, putting out the occasional fire. But your hustle should never be 24/7, no matter what those slick pink Insta posts tell you!

No-grinding, balance-creating, super-successful modern CEOs just do things differently — and we can learn a lot from their choices.

And guess what: you can learn three of their lessons right here, right now!

  • The importance of knowing when to reach out to experts 
  • What sets successful, savvy modern CEOs apart from average CEOs
