Hustle vs. professionalism

If you want something to happen, you have to work for it. 

Hustle culture works, but only for a short period of time. 

It’s becoming more and more evident that working till you can’t anymore is not a sustainable way to make a living. 

Most people can’t work 7 days a week, 14 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

Most people don’t like to be on a soulless grind. 

The alternative is to be a professional, as per Steven Pressfield’s definition. 

Being a professional means you show up to work every day and do what needs to be done. 

Being a professional means you create work that fulfills a promise you’ve made to your target audience, because you care. 

It’s not about doing as much as you can in the shortest period of time you can afford. 

A professional does their work out of passion for the process. 

A professional is in it for the long haul. 

Hustle culture isn’t going anywhere, but if you want to pursue creative goals I recommend you commit. Turn into a pro.
