Why hustle has seasons (a new video featuring my wife Jenny!)

Of all the investments you must make into your career, none of them involve more tension than hustle.

You have to work incredibly hard, but you have to rest.

You have to say yes to a lot of opportunities but also protect your time and say no regularly.

You need grit to hold on in the tough times and flexibility to quit when it’s time to move on.

Sometimes we think hustle is an excuse to become a workaholic, but it’s not. Rest is actually a really important part of hustle. The hard part is that in a culture that praises busyness, rest is an act of bravery.

How do you manage the tension? You start by understanding that hustle has seasons.

That’s the topic of the second video in my free video series, The 3 Rules of Hustle. And as you can see, my wife Jenny joins me in this video to talk about that very thing (as well as some other things like how much Tony Hawk Pro Skater I played when I was putting off writing and why no one eats chili in the summer.)


It’s a fun one. Check it out here by signing up for all three free videos!

I created the 3 Rules of Hustle video series because the truth about hustle is this: hustle is the fuel for the things we work on. And if you use it the right way and apply it to the right things, you get to be more awesome, more often.

The best part is, when you sign up you’ll get access to video #1 and video #2 immediately.

I can’t wait to see what dream, goal or project you apply the 3 rules of hustle to!

    Loved this video. My wife really likes your wife, probably because she is saying the same thing to you as my wife says to me. It was blast. So I have to ask, are we going to get a picture of the rest of the room? (I wouldn’t, but that’s me)
    Thanks for all you do.

    I really enjoyed the first two videos. The season perspective really helped me. I have been struggling for months on wanting to get out on my own but never can seem to get anywhere. Then I listened to this and thought I have a 2 year old and a 16 year old so maybe this is not my season. My favorite quote: “If you don’t acknowledge the season you’re in you will hustle the wrong way.”
