“The great danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark."
This blog is a case against hustling! The biggest reason why I am making this case is because I believe that hustling to grab every low hanging fruit, stops us from dreaming big. To dream big, one needs to get away from the mental clutter that comes with taking on every money-making opportunity, without an eye on long term growth. As women, we are especially conditioned to take on all of the tasks and not outsource - multi-tasking is supposedly our strong suit. Social media bombards us with messages that tell us that we have to be successful in every single aspect of our lives, keep all the balls in the air and do a somersault at the same time. I'm here to tell you - let some of those balls drop. As Miles Davis famously points out "It's not the notes you play, it's the notes you don't play." De-clutter that to-do list, clear your mind, focus on the big picture.
