WTF are we doing here? 🤷‍♂️

In Blog, Hustle Podcast by Eric Byrnes

The other day, I ran into an old acquaintance of mine, let’s call him Stevie Super Soft… 

After the simple “what up dude” awkward pleasantries, he asked what I’ve been up to:

“Chasing kids, talking baseball and… well… that’s bout it.” 

Of course that wasn’t it but I figured it was enough basic information for Stevie, and quite frankly, I didn’t really want to get into it with the dude.

Then I realized that even if I did want to unload some “f*ck it” wisdom, how could I possibly explain the The F*IT List, The Daily Hustle, Team Go Hard, The Let Them Play Foundation and the endurance endeavors in a clear and concise manner without overwhelming the notoriously SOFT Stevie to the point he would think I was out of my freaking mind… 

Then again, I am pretty sure he thinks I’m nuts anyway so not exactly sure why I would give two f*cks. 🤷‍♂️

Nonetheless, after a few minutes of dodging some more questions, we parted ways… 

Then, it hit me. 👊

I immediately knew if I ever wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and potentially have a positive effect on the Stevie Super Soft’s of the world, it was time to simplify my message… 

Of course, The F*IT List is a book, The Daily Hustle is a podcast and blog, Team Go Hard is a community of BAMF’s (Bad Ass Mother F*ckers) and The LTP Foundation is an organization committed to helping ALL kids PLAY… Yet, in order for any of this shit to resonate with all people on all levels, I needed to find a way to sum it up in a very easy and comprehensive manner.

In essence, I had to ask myself the question we should all visit way more frequently in our lives… 

WHAT THE F*CK are we doing here

Huh 🤔

Not quite sure what sort of impact we are actually having, but believe it or not, I do know EXACTLY what we are trying to do. Shockingly, the mission is the same across all platforms in my life… 

LEAD THROUGH ACTION – ENCOURAGE AND HELP OTHERS MAXIMIZE THEIR POTENTIAL BY LIVING A LIFESTYLE PREDICATED ON EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE AND DOING EPIC SHIT. 

We all have a million different things going on in our lives and it can be very easy to lose touch with WHAT we are actually trying to achieve, and of course, WHY we are doing it.

Let’s just make sure every few months we clarify our mission in a clear and concise manner and constantly ask ourselves WTF are we doing here?

We never know when we may run into Stevie Super Soft and have a chance to influence his life to a point where we can finally get the dudes balls to drop. ⚾️⚾️
