The flow

I love to be in the flow.

Rewinding back a couple of weeks, I was working on a side-project by the night while working on my day job during the usual hours.

Amidst all the exhaustion from the day job, I stayed up till 4-5AM in the morning while feeling fully energetic and happy.

How did I do that?

I didn't drink RedBull (though, that energy drink doesn't work on me), didn't take in any special herb to fuel my body - I stayed in the flow.

The secret recipe here is to love what you're doing.

To remain valuable in our economy, therefore, you must master the art of quickly learning complicated things. This task requires deep work. If you don’t cultivate this ability, you’re likely to fall behind as technology advances.

I loved working on that project. It was an interesting project plus I got to use a new language called Kotlin to build the app.

All these challenges and new stuff kept me going through all the late night coding.

Everyone wants to hustle but most of us fail to identify this crucial element. Hustling for something you love and enjoy will help you see the end of the line.

Do what you love. It'll make your hustle meaningful and easy.

A human is the happiest when they are truly enjoying what they are doing. Do what you enjoy doing.

Leap of faith
