883: Midweek Mashup | Perspectives on "Hustle Culture"
Travis Makes Friends is back with another insightful mashup episode, this time diving deep into the topic of hustle culture. Travis brings together perspectives from three influential guests - Ed Mylett, Jefferson Bethke, and Keala Kanae - to uncover the truth about hustling and what it really takes to find meaning and success.
In this episode:
- Why balance is a fallacy, according to Ed Mylett (@edmylett). He explains that extremity expands capacity - the more you push in one area, the more it expands your ability in another. Rather than balance, he advises to "be where your feet are" and focus completely on the task at hand.
- Why hustle culture is toxic, according to Jefferson Bethke (@jeffersonbethke). He explains how making work about identity rather than material production is a new phenomenon that correlates with surging anxiety and depression rates. Also, Jefferson views social media as a "family photo album." It's normal to share highlights, but problematic to constantly compare your daily life to others' best moments. The solution is moderation, not manufacturing experiences just for social media.
- The importance of linking your values to things you don't enjoy, from Keala Kanae (@kealakanae). When you consciously connect daily tasks to your core values, you can learn to love what you do. This mindset shift saved Keala from depression and helped him become a successful entrepreneur.
Dive into this thought-provoking episode to gain a nuanced perspective on hustle culture, values-based living, and what it really takes to find meaning and success as an entrepreneur. Don't just hustle - listen to this episode and focus on what matters most.
