Let’s talk hustle culture.

Is it really helping us?

Or does it cause burnout?

Look, I get the thrill of being ‘busy’.

The thrill of being the hardest worker in the room any day of the week.

But sometimes, you gotta step back and ask yourself:

Am I actually productive?

Am I doing this at the cost of my human machine, my well-being?

Remember this, Nation:

𝗜𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝗼𝗱𝘆 𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗽𝘀 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗵𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗺𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝗻𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴.

So in between all the hard work, take stock:

→ Set boundaries.
→ Focus on impact.
→ Learn to delegate.
→ Assess your goals.
→ Prioritize self-care.
→ Prioritize high-impact tasks.

𝗣𝗦: What's your number one tip for countering hustle culture?
