Do You Really Want To ‘Hustle’ 18 Hours A Day? No Thanks Gary V

Today I am going to tell you all about why I think that Gary Vaynerchuk’s ‘Hustle’ is wrong.  Now this video is a bit controversial but those of you know me well know that I like a bit of controversy.

I think that one of the first things that you have to think about is why the hell would you create a goal to work for 18 hours a day?  A goal to become rich is one thing, but when you get there to continue working 18 hours a day?  That’s pretty crazy to me.  No, in fact I’ll come out and say it straight.  I think it’s pretty stupid to make that your life plan.

Let’s look at it honestly.  You’re going to become a millionaire so that you can be having meetings at 6am and also at 11pm and work all day between.  Is that really the life you aspire to?

Do you really think that he’s doing all of that?  Do you honestly believe that he’s working 18 hours a day every day?

There is no way that I’m going to do that!

The new rich is all about time freedom.  It’s about having the lifestyle that you want to live.  It’s not about killing yourself with work for money that you’ll never have the time to enjoy.  That isn’t the point to life and I want you to wake up to this.  It isn’t necessary.  Take a look at the video and you’ll see what I’m talking about

So what do you think to the video?  There are some really important points raised there that I think you need to be looking at.  Your future goals need to reflect the lifestyle that you want to live.  If you are a bit crazy and you want to work 18 hours a day for the rest of life and massively increase the chance of dying from a heart attack while never being able to enjoy everything that you’ve created then go right ahead and do it.

While you are killing yourself and destroying all of your relationships, I’ll spend time with my family, go paddle boarding on the local beach, go for long walks with my dog in the mountains and go on adventures.  That’s what I’m going to be doing with my time.

working-18-hours-a-day-jailThe whole idea of earning enough money to be financially free is to free yourself.  It’s not to create another cage with nicer upholstery.

If that is your idea of freedom then you might as well stay in a job and save yourself all of the stress and hassle that comes with being an entrepreneur.  Believe me, when those hard time come, you’re going to need a pretty compelling vision to keep you going through them.  Those days when you get so overwhelmed that you don’t even know why you’re going through the struggle are tough.  To be going through all of that to create another form of a prison to just simply exist in.  Is that what you want your life to be like?

Not for me thanks!
