Nothing I say gets more pushback than what we are talking about in this episode. And yet, I believe it with all my heart. 

Great Work- the work that matters the most to us, the work that shares our unique point of view, in community with amazing people, that keeps you on your evolving edge and creates our legacy is difficult. What does it actually take to do it? 

It’s time for the ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN

🤺 HUSTLE: Your ability to work harder than anyone else #sleepwhenyouredead


🥷RESILIENCE: Your ability to bounce back from adversity #hereforareason


The winner is obvious and incontrovertible: 

Great Work is not the result of hustle. 

It is, instead, the result of resilience. 

Join me as we discuss:

  • Why we feel like we need to squeeze every drop out of every minute and every day
  • How taking better care of yourself accelerates your Great Work
  • Why hustle is an empty promise and a dangerous oversimplification
