I just got back from speaking at Brené Brown’s Courage Camp, and today I want to talk about what I mean when I say “hustle” and “do the work.”

Topics discussed in this periscope:

  • The backlash against “the hustle” and what we mean when we say “do the work”
  • How the work looks different for everyone
  • How to handle your inner gremlins when it’s time to do the work
  • Polarity mapping: Embracing the AND between work and play
  • Noticing the warning signs of when you’re not embracing the “and” (especially as rest)
  • Scheduling white space
  • The difference between understanding the importance of something and actually embracing it
