There are a lot of hustlers out there boasting about being the ‘hardest worker in the room’.

There are also a lot of gooroos out there hyping on how you should work 14 hour days and 100 hour weeks if you want to be successful. 🤪

But if you take a closer look, most are running in circles while only a few are moving the needle.

And amongst the few who are moving the needle, only a small percentage of them are able to sustain momentum over the long term.


Because hard work is only a small part of the equation.

And by thinking that hard work is cure-all to all business problems is EXACTLY why most Founders end up finding themselves on a perpetual hamster wheel.

Hard work is essential to achieving anything worthy, but there is a fine line between working hard to create motion versus progress.

That line – is determined by whether you are working hard intellectually, or working hard laboriously. 🧠

Too often do Founders stay stuck in the weeds, frantically trying to keep up with overdue projects and never ending to-dos… that they’re working towards becoming the best office worker instead of the best visionary / innovator.

The only problem is, their value isn’t determined by their ability to use their hands to deal with $10 tasks… their value is determined by their ability to use their brains to solve million dollar problems.

Before diving straight into the weeds and trying to brute force your way to your goals…

Exercise your intellect and practice how to think. It is by then can you identify the best way to invest your time & effort, for the maximal returns.

Not to mention all the stress, anxiety and overwhelm that can be alleviated in the process.

Wishing you a productive, intentional week ahead! 👊
