“Nobody Cares, Work Harder.”
That’s the name of a track from rapper Dizzy Wright.
The song I’ve barely rotated.
But the title keeps hitting me!
It captures a theme in his music too.
When I came across this track a couple years ago he was working hard to break through.
Perhaps he has now, tbh I don’t pay attention.
But when I see his track it always makes me think…
Can you work harder?
What does it even mean to work harder?
What does it mean to you?
Is it raw hours?
Getting more done in less time?
Doing harder things?
It means these and many other things to me too.
But when I was faced with having to find another gear to win…
I went deep on SIMPLIFYING it down to these two PRINCIPLES.
What if there are no more hours?
That’s the thing for most the people I work with.
They CAN’T work any more hours.
Nights. Weekends. Some of them work around the clock.
Hours aren’t a lever they can pull.
That’s the 1st PRINCIPLE I broke work harder into.
If you’re looking to work harder that’s the most obvious place to start.
But what if you don’t want that?
Or there aren’t any more hours for work?
That’s doorway 2 for work harder…
That’s the thing you really come across in all high performance pursuits.
Those that go after it harder, longer, with more intensity win more.
It’s this simple.
But, what does it mean to bring more intensity every day?
Intensity as a practice
In sports, combat, plenty of other facets of life…
You have other people there to build up your intensity.
Unlike a team huddling ahead of a game to get fired up and go after it…
For most of us, it’s on you to drive your own intensity.
So how do you?
When it really matters for you to get more focus into your day?
Or more results?
To achieve more in less time?
By bringing more intensity!
What might this mean for you?
Maybe you choose to work more hours.
There’s lots of obvious ideas about working harder and working smarter.
Yet, in the end…
The person who works smarter and works more hours is more likely to win.
Is this something you want to do?
What might you change in your priorities to work more hours?
How about if you want to avoid working more hours?
Or even desire to work less, but drive the same or better results?
How can you bring more intensity INTO your minutes?
And get WAY MORE out of them too?
Not so short audio
People tell me that audio is coming back around.
So I’m gonna start sharing with you some audio tracks like I used to.
For me audio never left!
It’s my #1 tool for conditioning my own and other minds too.
And I’m not talking audio tracks like Dizzy Wright’s.
But tracks like this one, with me walking through these two principles and two practices for work harder—
