I always called myself ambitious, a go-getter, a hustler. I would have big ideas, and I would put them into action. That is part of the basis of what makes me, me. But then, I started working with a startup. Boy, do I know what hustle really means now.
Every day, from breakfast to bedtime, I am working on something: classwork, this blog, the startup, finding odd jobs. Then there is also the actual attending classes, or attending meetings, or actually doing said odd jobs. I have a giant list that I go through, every single day, and a new list every single night. Most think I am completely nuts; they may be right, but I love this life.
I love the hustle. I love the sense of productivity I get, accomplishing things both big and small throughout the day. It’s the best version of an adrenaline rush I’ve felt when it comes to personal or professional work. Additional perks: having a sense of purpose, meeting really cool people, and defying the status quo.

So, hustle. The only time we have is now.
