Hustle Is Overhyped and Overrated

Hustle is a buzzword for working all the time.

And those who propagate this idea believe that hustling is the only way to be successful and happy.

This can’t be farther from the truth.

The key to a happy and meaningful life is rest and reflection. You can rest and reflect when you are not working when you are not hustling. Reflection is important because it allows you to see what is important at that time. If you are slacking for some reason, reflection can help you notice that and prompt you to change course.

Kill the idea that you need to be grinding and hustling all the time in order to be successful. Embrace downtime and cultivate the ability to focus. This will make sure that you are able to do deep work and bring your best self to whatever you pursue.
