Embracing the "Anti-Hustle" Culture in Business

Have you grown tired of the hustle culture that seems to have become ingrained in the world of entrepreneurship? If you answered “yes”, we have that in common. I’m quite honestly sick of the shame and guilt that has been created if you aren’t working in your business 24/7. Let’s talk about letting go of the hustle culture in business.

 

Creating the life you want.

Most of the entrepreneurs I know became entrepreneurs to have freedom. They wanted to have the freedom to do the things that they enjoy and to make memories with their family. You wanted to have a life different than being a slave to a job. 

Now, all of a sudden, we’re no longer slaves to our jobs, but we’ve created this culture where we need to be slaves to our business. The hustle culture is just simply bullshit. There’s no other way to put it. 

 

Let go of the hustle culture with the 80/20 rule.

I live by the 80/20 rule in just about every single thing that I do.  The 80/20 rule can 100% be applied to your business. So let’s say you have a 5 day work week. If you apply the 80/20 rule to your work week, then you would take one day off a week. That’s 52 days off a year! So think about it from that perspective. 

It’s okay to live by the 80/20 rule. But when it comes to entrepreneurship, we feel like it’s not. Stop with the hustle, hustle, hustle all the time mentality. Go and embrace the time off. Take your 52 days off and don’t feel bad about it. 

 

When you take days off from the hustle, your brain has time to rest.

Your brain has time to recharge. In all honesty, a lot of times when your brain is relaxed, refreshed, and recharging, that’s when your best ideas come to you. Why do you think your best ideas come to you when you’re in the car in the shower? Because your mind has the ability to just wander and open up to new possibilities. 

 

Stop feeling guilty about it letting go of the hustle. 

Go live your life by the 80/20 rule and live your business by the 80/20 rule. Write it down and put it everywhere to remind yourself. You don’t have to grind all the time. Instead create balance in your life AND your business.
