I believe working hard is important. I believe that through action and working smart will lead to results. I want to share right at the top of this, that I am not a fan of this word. You will know why.
When I think of the word HUSTLE, I think of working hard but I always hear it in the context force. As the definition explains, I am not incorrect in thinking that. When I think of this word I think of sweaty muscular people in the gym or hard working business people; people working hard to get what results desired.
I don’t think you need to hustle to get what you want. I think working smart so you don’t have to work hard is a more effective way. Hustle to me sounds like pushing something into something you want. I don’t know if this is a well thought out idea. I just know that when I hear it, I don’t want to imagine having to work so hard that I am no longer enjoying it. That is my take away. I also feel it is constantly used and for me, it is losing its power. I don’t want to rush myself or others to get what I want. I think I would feel a higher sense of satisfaction if I stay my course – like the tortoise and the hare.
I rather work smart than hustle.
