love it Ben! concentrated hustle will change things.

Stephen Brewster is awesome. I consider it a serious blessing to have him at my home church. :)

Love your word...I need to pick up elements of that this year. But I have a feeling Dream Year weekend will help me with that!

"I'm a hustla, baby.
I just want you to know.
It ain't about where I been,
but where I'm about to go."

Hustle - I like it. My brother used to yell at me when I would slack off, "Nobody walks except the mailman!" Simple phrase but it kept me going.

I am down to two words - Focus and Clarity. 2010 was a year of distraction. I am going to focus on what got me here and clarify the purpose. Marshall Goldsmith wrote a book on What Got You Here, Won't Get You There. I am going to debunk his philosophy by twisting it a bit. Not sure of the twist. That's what getting me out of bed fired up (and hustling!) :)

yeah, good luck with that. I know, I'm a hater...

haters never use their real names. why is that?

seriously, if i was a hater, i'd want people to know who was doing the hatin'. What a waste to let all of that emotional angst go unrecognized.

Elliot - Exactly! :)

And Ben, absolutely no sarcasm in these words, "Good luck with this!" I know you can. I know you will.

Sorry, just a bad morning and I'm jealous of your energy level haha

I'm new to hatin I guess...I've been reading your blog for years, at least 5 years.

Mississippirb, you called yourself a hater, so I know you're harmless =)

Remember this blog is a tiny tiny tiny slice of my life and state of mind =)

great word, ben -- and i love the specific changes you're already making to accelerate the pace of your work. small steps with potential for big results.

you've so got this, "hustla"!

The trick for me is to figure out how to hustle while I'm at peace, while I wait and seek... and not hustling kely-speed instead of God speed.

Maybe I'll posture some aggressive waiting and some seeking rest...

I had a professor who, at his first ad agency job as an art director, earned himself the nickname "The Hungry" because he was constantly scavenging & begging for work.

It pays to be The Hungry. ;)
