Multi-millionaire entrepreneur, real estate tycoon and best-selling author Grant Cardone works a lot.
In his estimation, according to CNBC, he works at least 95 hours each week.
That’s at least 95 hours per week.
His attitude about that, however, is very straightforward, very blunt:
“There are 168 hours in a week. You should be working most of them,” Cardone tells CNBC. “If you want to change your condition, you have to work.
If you can outwork the rest of the population, you're going to get lucky.”
No concerns about work-life balance for this guy.
To repeat: “There are 168 hours in a week. You should be working most of them.”
Even for a highly-motivated person, that’s still a whole bunch of hours. So how in the world does he avoid getting burned out as a result of all that time spent devoted to his labors?
His answer is as simple as it is revealing.
“Any time you're feeling burned out — any time you're exhausted — look for your purpose.
"People burn out for one reason: Because they're off purpose.”
Cardone says the key lies in remaining cognizant of “what it is you're here to do. You've got to find that rich part of you, the reason you're here, and go out every day and chase it down, hunt it down, and bring it into focus.
“Most people quit the game because the trophy's not big enough. Me and my wife sit down and ask, ‘What's the trophy now?’ You make a million dollars. OK, what's the new trophy? What's the new game?
“You do not get tired when you're having fun. When you're winning, you don't get tired. When you're scoring, you don't get tired. The game can go on forever. But when you're not winning, you're not scoring, and it no longer matters, then you get exhausted.”
