I've hustled poorly for most of my life. If you are anything like me, you've heard the term, "hustle," tossed around like a bottomless salad with delicious breadsticks from Olive Garden. Maybe you've even attempted to apply some hustle to your game by picking up a side job, working another gig that you can do online or from home, etc.
Typically, these "hustles" turn into a salve that we can use to make ourselves feel better about ourselves. Too often they never really ever accomplish anything. In addition, we'll take the mantra to "work smarter, not harder" mean that we shouldn't really be working that hard and the result is a lot of wasted time and money while we look for the easy way to achieve our goals. These approaches are inefficient and disappointing at best.
