“Nobody Cares. Work Harder.” -Jocko Willink
It’s fashionable today, especially in our social media age, for people to signal how hard they’re working. Athletes constantly post their workout videos (#thegrind). Entrepreneurs post pics of themselves staying late in the office (#thehustle). Actors loooove to talk about how much research they spent preparing for a role.
Here’s the thing. Nobody really cares. Nor should they.
The only thing we’re judged on is our performance. The art we manifested. The change we sought to make.
The amount of time it took to get there is utterly irrelevant.
