Hard work used to be defined by the weight you carried.
The heavier the load, the harder you worked.
But if someone took the initiative to ask for help, does that mean they worked less?
The hard, difficult work we get to do isn’t moving one pile of stuff from one place to the other. No, it’s having the courage to step up and stand out. To be vulnerable. To be willing to be rejected. To ship your work into the work.
Hard work isn’t measured in pounds. It’s measured by guts.
