When more “hustle” isn’t the answer
You often hear that entrepreneurs are the people who are willing to work 80 hours a week for themselves in order to avoid working 40 hours a week for someone else.

In other words: Build the life you want, then work for it. Don’t just hustle blindly

or you’ll forget why you’re doing it.

This sounds admirable, doesn’t it? It’s heroic to make sacrifices that other people aren’t willing to make, so that you can achieve what others can’t.

But if you have to convince yourself it’s fun, maybe it’s not really fun.

Demand more of yourself.

Be realistic. Yes, you’re going to have to work hard and sacrifice a few things. Yes, it’s going to take time. Before you assume one of your heroes hit overnight success, find out the truth and set realistic expectations.
But be thoughtful: Do you really have to sacrifice your workouts? Or your time with friends?Are you just taking the easy way out by saying, “I can’t go tonight because I have to work?” Are you even getting work done at 10pm on a Friday?
Be proactive. What kind of life do you want? Design it today. Plan out your vacations for the year on January 1st. Decide how many times a week you want to go out. If you don’t, it won’t magically happen tomorrow. Tim Ferriss famously talked about mini-retirements today instead of a big retirement 40 years from now. Be proactive.
