The “hustler” image on the right is pretty much what I try to do every day: lots of work, lots of communication/messaging. The communication isn’t always directly related to the work at hand—sometimes I’m supporting other people with their own hustling. But on a good day, there’s plenty of work and and plenty of messaging.
Another way to look at it is:
- Style without substance = flash. (Also, no one respects these people.)
- Substance without style = unknown. (Everyone who knows these people respects them… but not many people know them.)
- Style with substance = impact. (The goal.)
