Ideas on balancing entrepreneurial drive with wellness, bringing to life new ideas while living well ourselves and making space for what matters in a well balanced life.

Hi,
I guess it’s official. Silicon Valley thinks I’m a loser.
Oh well.
Why am I loser?
I’m a loser because I don’t “hustle”. I’m actually on the anti-“hustle”.
Silicon Valley glorifies the hustle. The Valley glorifies hustling. Hustling’s glorified hard.
In Silicon Valley, Working 9 to 5 Is for Losers - The New York Times
I felt angry reading this article. Then I felt sad. I feel sad that so many people, humans, are buying into the hustle.
I used to hustle. This means I know how destructive the hustle can be. The hustle came close to destroying me. It destroyed me just enough to stop hustling.
It destroyed me just enough to start Just Rolling with It.
Does this mean I’m a loser? Hmmm…yes, according to Silicon Valley. I already knew I wasn’t “blue flame” enough.
Oh well…
How about you? Are you a loser or do you “hustle” ;)
Catch you next week,
Chris
