HUSTLE GETS HANSSONIZED
David Heinemeier Hansson, co-author of Rework, co-founder of Base Camp wrote this interesting piece in December that every online entrepreneur should read – it’s about burying the hustle mentality.
It’s too easy to get sucked into this notion that Gary Vee-style hustle is the way to go about business. It’s not efficient. It’s not healthy.
“The hustle has become synonymous with the grind. Pushing through pain and exhaustion in the chase of a bigger carrot. Sacrificing the choice bits of the human experience to climb some arbitrary ladder of success. I can’t connect with any of that.” – DHH.
Here’s DHH’s cheat sheet to being more productive:
- Get a great night’s sleep: The studies on sleep deprivation and its cognitive effects are unanimous and devastating.
- Get plenty of fresh air: The latest studies on effects of CO2 accumulation, volatile organic compounds, and other indoor air quality killers are shocking.
- Get regular exercise: It’s about what moving your body does to your brain. And it’s good.
- Read some classics: The influences compound and tickle your creativity in profound ways.
- Say no to more dumb shit: Engage with fewer things but at a higher intensity. Stick with it. Stop chasing so much.
- Relax: Background stress from anxiety of not getting enough done is literally lethal.
Put in a good day’s work, then slam that laptop shut. Go live your life for the rest of the day.
