The Hit List – Hustle soft

The Hit List - Hustle soft

It’s no secret that I’m a workaholic. I love to work – and there is rarely a day that I tear myself away from the grind. I hustle hard. My whole family is the same way. You could say it’s in our blood.

This year, I’m finding balance. Instead of working my tail off, I’m learning to hustle soft. Less push. Less go, go, go.

It’s not that I am tired or any such thing. I would also say that it’s not because I’m seeking some sort of meaningful life (I already have one). Instead, the real reason: I am nearing the finish line of a mighty big financial goal – which means I am almost ready to coast into retirement planning.

Before you panic: I’m not ever going to fully retire. Trust me: I would go nuts. I need to be doing something. Plus I’ve got about twelve more years before I’m even eligible. Breathe easy…I’m not going anywhere for a while.

But as my intentions come closer into view, I no longer have to kill myself in the process. That feeling is a mighty good one.

So here’s to hard work and a push towards the finish line and a softer gallop as I cross it. By next year at this time, the goal should be crossed off the list at last (or within striking distance) and then…I plan the next move. Softly, of course.

Feeling lucky.
