There is an obsession and romanticism with hustling and working harder and I call bullshit on it!
It isn’t about working harder, doing more, or having to feel like you are hustling every damn day.
✧ It’s about working SMARTER.
✧ Focusing on your highest PRIORITIES.
✧ Doing less things but BETTER.
✧ Being FOCUSED.
✧ Keeping things SIMPLE.
✧ Actually FINISHING something instead of just being busy.
✧ Ensuring your are OPTIMIZING everything you are doing.
✧ Making your business LEAN.
Do I work hard? Yes! Most people describe me as the hardest working person they know, BUT I have moved past wearing that like a badge of honor. I am consistently focused on working SMARTER within the time I do have, and I love helping my coaching clients to do the same.
Why? Because when I work 18 hour days every single day, I burn out. I forget to make self care a priority. I feel like I don’t have time to exercise or eat healthy. Or visit with my friends and family. Can you relate?
That random bright shiny object someone just told me about? Sure, I will just stay up an hour later tonight to work on it. I am a hard worker. I hustle. This is just what we do for our businesses. Sleep deprivation is to be expected when you are running a business. Right?
It has taken me a while to change that story for myself and I know it is something so many of my clients struggle with.
I would love to hear, is this something you struggle with? Or how have you started working SMARTER instead of HARDER?
I think it all starts when we stop romanticizing hard work and hustling and stop feeling like we aren’t a “real entrepreneur” if we don’t.
By setting boundaries and WORK WITHIN THEM instead of adding “just one more thing.” XX
And if you need help with it, I have a select number of 45 minute coaching intensives available each month.
