A One-Page Summary Of

Rise and Grind

Outperform, Outwork, and Outhustle Your Way to a More Successful and Rewarding Life

The Main Idea

As enticing as a universal "secret of success" sounds, there's no such thing. Instead, those who accomplish more outwork their peers. They figure out how to make the best use of their time and to maximize every moment.Simply put, the key to getting ahead and staying ahead is to rise and grind each and every day you're alive. By all means be inspired by the examples of others, and do everything you can to work smart as well as hard, but to achieve more, there is no silver bullet – you've got to outwork everyone else.

Rise and G-R-I-N-D. Find a way, get the job done, navigate past obstacles and accomplish the goals you set for yourself.

I’ve seen some things, met all kinds of interesting, ridiculously successful people. I’ve hung around with world leaders and game-changers. I’m constantly learning from these people, and one of the things I’ve learned is that there is no secret formula for success. However, there are certain essential ingredients that are always in the mix. Truth is, there is one common trait I notice in all the people I meet who are thriving and striving: every single one of them has got a killer work ethic. Seriously, they are up and at it each and every day, and they are at it hard. You could call it drive. You could call it determination. You could call it oomph, grit, or hustle. I call it rising and grinding. And I’m out to shine a light on it here.
