What Hustle Means – FFBS September Selection

Hustle CoverIn the book that I will present on September 1 at the First Friday Book Synopsis entitled Hustle, there are four definitive quotes that characterize the content of the book.  This is the bibliographic citation:

Patel, Neal, Vlaskovits, Patrick, & Koffler, Jonas.  (2017).  Hustle:   The power to charge your life with money, meaning, and momentum.  New York:   Rodale.

Hustle defined “Decisive movement towards a goal, however indirect, by which the motion itself manufactures luck, surfaces hidden opportunities, and charges our lives with more money, meaning, and momentum” (p. xvi).

“Hustle is how we use our idiosyncrasies to find our unique means and our personal successes.  Discovering our own way, not blindly aping the success of others, is the truest way forward” (p. xvi).

To fully own your dreams, you’ll need three fundamental forces:  money, meaning, and momentum.  Your hustle aims to cultivate and amplify those three forces throughout your life, through all you do and all you are to become as a person.  When done right, hustle is the proverbial gift that keeps on giving” (p. xvi).

If we’ve learned anything, it’s that you don’t have to be privileged to hustle.  You only need to give yourself permission. The rest, i.e., money, meaning, and momentum, will take care of itself” (p. xx).
