The Hustler’s Playbook: Success Is a By-Product

first_imgYou can’t “be successful.” You can only do the things that produce success.Hustlers are successful because they do certain things of which success is a byproduct.Future-OrientationHustler’s are future-oriented. They don’t allow their past to define their future. For a hustler, their past is just an origin story. Hustlers trade time and energy now for the future they want.Success is what happens when you take the actions that build a better future.Go All InHustlers succeed because they don’t take half measures. They’re all in. If they are going to do something, they become obsessed with that thing. They allow their vision to consume them.Success is what happens when you take massive action in pursuit of some goal or ambition.Grind It OutHustlers love the grind. A non-hustler hates Mondays and can’t wait for Friday. They call driving to the office and doing their job “the grind.” But hustlers define “grind” very differently. To a hustler, grinding means relentlessly doing the work that most needs to be done, and that which leads to the best results.Success is the by-product of hard work. It’s also the result of working smarter.Grow Big EnoughHustlers are growth-oriented, personally and professionally. Hustlers work on developing the only real asset they have for producing the results they want: themselves. Hustlers don’t allow failure or setbacks to dissuade them. Instead, they use it to make adjustments.Success often follows failure. Failure is your teacher, giving you the feedback on what you need to learn before your next attempt.Do What Is UncomfortableHustlers don’t avoid the things that cause non-hustlers to run for the doors. Hustlers are comfortable with conflict, engaging in the difficult conversations that are necessary to getting things done. Hustlers are also comfortable selling themselves and their ideas, in part because they’re obsession is the passion that infects others.Success is what happens when you do the things that make you uncomfortable until they no longer make you uncomfortable.Outcomes Are the By-ProductWhat about the money? Hustlers do make money, even if their real goal is something greater, like freedom. But money is only a by-product of creating value for other people. Unless you inherit money, the money you make has to come from someone else who is willing to exchange it for something you have.Success is a naturally occurring outcome of a set of beliefs and actions. The beliefs and actions that hustlers consistently take are what produces the success. Don’t confuse the by-product with the hard work and sacrifice it takes to produce it. Get the Free eBook!

Clooney Foundation For Justice Partners And UNICEF To Open Seven Public Schools

first_imgThe Clooney Foundation for Justice has announced a $2.25 million partnership, which includes a generous donation from, and a $1 million technology grant from HP, to support formal education for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.The partnership with UNICEF will help seven public schools to provide critical education opportunities to nearly 3,000 currently out-of-school refugee students this school year, and will also support a pilot of technology tools in these schools to advance learning outcomes for refugee children and Lebanese youth.“Thousands of young Syrian refugees are at risk – the risk of never being a productive part of society. Formal education can help change that. That’s our goal with this initiative. We don’t want to lose an entire generation because they had the bad luck of being born in the wrong place at the wrong time,” said George and Amal Clooney.The Syrian refugee crisis remains the largest humanitarian crisis since the end of World War II. Lebanon, which has the world’s highest per capita refugee population, has been particularly affected by an influx of more than one million Syrian refugees. This surge has left local resources strained, affecting both refugee children and Lebanese students.Of today’s announcement, Lebanon’s Minister of Education, Marwan Hamade said “The Government of Lebanon is profoundly grateful to the leadership of George and Amal Clooney and the Clooney Foundation for Justice. We are delighted the Clooney Foundation has decided to support our efforts to open the doors of more public schools to ensure we can offer every child currently living in Lebanon a free education. We are also looking forward to collaborating with the Clooney Foundation and its partners on advancing innovative technology in all our classrooms. Each child given access to education, and new ways of learning, represents a life changed for the better. Today’s grant from the Clooney Foundation for Justice is therefore a crucial investment in future generations in Lebanon.”The Clooney Foundation for Justice’s initiative, combining financial support with technology, will improve educational opportunities for both Lebanese and Syrian refugee children, so many of whom are missing out on an education.“How can children become the workers and leaders of their countries someday if they have not had the education and support they need to reach their full potential?” asked UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake. “By supporting the work of UNICEF and our partners to deliver education to every child affected by the conflict in Syria, the Clooney Foundation for Justice is not only investing in the futures of individual children, it is investing in the future of the entire region. UNICEF is deeply grateful for this critical funding.”Close to 200,000 Syrian refugee children in Lebanon are out of school. Their lives have been shaped by violence, displacement and lack of opportunity, and many have never been enrolled in formal education. Without access to learning and a return to a sense of normalcy, these children are at risk of becoming a lost generation. The Clooney Foundation for Justice is committed to supporting efforts that ensure children get the experiences they need to thrive. UNICEF has been working with partners across the region to put children first since the crisis began. In addition to providing emergency assistance and essential services, including child-friendly spaces, UNICEF and partners have been at the forefront of efforts to address the long-term needs of Syrian refugee children, including education, counseling and social inclusion.“We must ensure that we do not fail those most vulnerable victims who have managed to flee the carnage in Syria. It is our hope that the refugee children who will soon start school through this initiative will have a chance to contribute to building a more peaceful and just world and, hopefully, one where those responsible for these grave crimes are held to account.” said Ambassador David Pressman, Executive Director of the Clooney Foundation for Justice.last_img read more

Bulls eye on US Permian Basin as oil prices rise

first_imgALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Some of the largest energy companies in the U.S. have already invested billions of dollars on claims up and down the Texas-New Mexico state line, tapping one of the nation’s richest and most prolific oil and natural gas regions.Now the stakes just got higher, as the U.S. Geological Survey released a new assessment Thursday that shows portions of the Permian Basin could hold even more promise.With the potential to double the nation’s onshore oil and gas resources, the agency estimates more than 46 billion barrels of oil and some 280 trillion cubic feet of gas are within two formations on the southwestern side of the basin. That’s the largest continuous oil and gas resource potential ever assessed.While agency geologists caution that more study would be needed to determine the profitability of going after the resources, industry groups and top officials within the Trump administration are encouraged and say the assessment underscores the activity that’s already happening in the basin.“Before this assessment came down, I was bullish on oil and gas production in the United States,” Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said in a statement. “Now, I know for a fact that American energy dominance is within our grasp as a nation.”The announcement comes as OPEC countries voted Friday to cut oil production beginning next year as a way to force crude oil prices higher despite political pressure from President Donald Trump. The group of oil-producing nations was looking to rein in supply as prices had fallen about 25 per cent because major producers, including the U.S., have been pumping at high rates.Producers throughout the Permian were closely watching Friday’s developments and there were no indications of things slowing down in the oilfields.Stephen Robertson, executive vice-president of the Texas-based Permian Basin Petroleum Association, said the signs for the basin’s potential have been there for a long time.“The fact is that Reeves County, which in the heart of that play, is running more rigs than any other county in the nation and has been doing that for quite a while,” he said. “The people out here know that it’s there and it really is that improvement of the technologies and the increased efficiencies allowing people the ability to actually be able to access it and produce it.”Still, a main factor is price.“If the price drops to a point where it’s not economical, then it doesn’t matter if it’s there. It’s not going to be produced,” Robertson said.New Mexico’s share of the Permian Basin has helped to drive production in the state to record levels in 2017. This year is expected to be another banner year as industry officials say the state is on pace to surpass 200 million barrels.The flurry of activity in southeastern New Mexico has put pressure on everything from housing and schools to highway infrastructure. Concerns also have been raised by state Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn about the environmental impacts as state and federal regulators have had a difficult time keeping up with the pace of development across the region.Dale Janway, mayor of the southeastern New Mexico city of Carlsbad, told The Associated Press that with the news of more resources in the Permian comes greater responsibility.“We know that we need to redouble our efforts to improve and develop infrastructure in the area and to work closely with the county, state and our business partners to best prepare for the future. We’re in it for the long haul,” he said.The boom also has resulted in a significant budget surplus that will give incoming Gov.-elect Michelle Lujan Grisham and the Democrat-led Legislature more options as they hash out spending priorities for everything from education and public safety to infrastructure.Susan Montoya Bryan, The Associated Presslast_img read more
