Your success can be measured by sweat.
Hustling is not a dirty word. In fact it is a necessary thing to continue to grow and progress in your craft.
Here are four tips on how to hustle:
Ralph Ramson says it like this:
Before the reward there must be labor. You plant before you harvest. You sow in tears before you reap joy.
- The Worm: Simply put, the early bird gets the worm. No matter if you are a morning person or not, you have to be awake when people are awake. If you are not waking up before or around 7:30 and getting your day going, you are not hustling. Sorry, you can disagree with me all you want. But people have a life, they have a job, and they are doing there thing long before you roll out of bed at 10am. Do not forget, you are not 17 years old any more.
- Cheat: No do not cheat your way to the top. Instead cheat your time. Use your spare time wisely. If you are at the grocery store, listen to a podcast. If you are going to the dentist, bring a book. If you are taking a long drive, listen to an audio book. Use the time that is available to get ahead and to grow.
- Subscribe: The internet has a plethora of information in its grasp. Trying to find all the useful and beneficial information is overwhelming. But if you can use the internet to work for you and not against you, things get a lot easier. One form of hustling is to further your understanding and knowledge about things of interest. If you want to be a better designer you better read all the design blogs. If you want to speak better start subscribing to the video podcast of great communicators. You get the idea, whatever you are interested find the places people are talking about them and start to engage.
- Notice: One of the biggest things that can bring your hustle game up a couple of notches is to notice others. This sounds pretty obvious and yet is one of the hardest things to do. Paying attention to others and asking questions will help you become more connected and informed then you could imagine. All from paying attention to others.
