Are You a Hustler?

February 12, 2011 — Leave a comment

I’ve heard two people refer to themselves as a “hustler.” They are ministry bloggers. And one of them is actually quoting another ministry guy. The other guy won a People’s Choice award this past year. As a Driver (refer to the Right Path Assessment) this word really appeals to me. I think of Rev. Run and other CEO types that have been able to accomplish massive amounts of __________ (fill in the blank with whatever it is that they’re passionate about) and it’s partially (only partially) due to their sense of hustle. Athletes are trained to hustle. Up and down a court, field or around a track. There’s a sense of urgency. A sense that there is a narrowing window of opportunity. So, my question isn’t are you a hustler in the sense of a swindler, crook or thief. It’s do you have hustle? Are you hustling? Are you making things happen? Are you working hard? Are you passionately going after that narrowing window of opportunity?
