Work Hard Play Hard
It’s easy to say those four words, but is it easy to do? No, not really. I promise I’m tired of life hitting me. I mean if I could talk to life itself I would say
I’m so serious y’all. In my mind, I’m like “bro calm down” because it has a habit of creeping up and putting me on my arse. No lie.
TODAY WASN’T MY DAY!
I’m not saying it like it was a disaster, but my frustration levels and worrying crept up pretty high. There were a million and one thoughts flooding my mind and anxiety was knocking at my door.
NOT TODAY SATAN
Why in the world did I even title this post “Work Hard Play Hard?” Um, because one, it was the first main thought that came to mind. Two, because this is what YOU need to learn to do.
I can sit and tell you all about me and what I did wrong blah blah blah. But, what I haven’t done is tell you what you might have done that wasn’t so savory. Catch me now. I’m not saying you did anything wrong. But, how are you working hard in order to play hard? Get this…
I’m in Priiincesss’s Consistency Group

Like I was saying, I’m in this consistency group and it’s so many talented individuals in there. Everyone has their own personal goal and a different drive. The thing in common is we all want one thing. To be the greatest we can be.
When I first started blogging…
I definitely did not remain consistent with my art. The new focus along with being consistent is being disciplined. Those two things are like the most important to have if you want to be great. I bring this up because not too long ago, I couldn’t answer the question I just asked you all.
And being consistent and disciplined doesn’t even have to be about blogging. If you are consistent and disciplined at a burger joint you’re working at…well, most chances are you’ll reap the benefits and get promoted.
So, again, what are you doing to work hard play hard?
Come up with an approach
How are you going to tackle your schedule?
My weakness is time management. That will be tackled with better organization
How will you combat lack of time management ?
Since I have an agenda now, I’ll be using that to schedule everything I should be doing. It will become my daily routine
What do you feel is holding you back?
I recognize the more cluttered I am in my life, the more I lack discipline and consistency. By the way, you know I heard a saying how creative minds are the messiest people. Why can’t creative minds be some of the neatest people? I find that to be true. Kind of.
As a creative, there are so many things that I want to do and COULD do if I remained consistent and disciplined. Does it seem like you’re doing a few things wrong like me? Does this sound like you? Yes? Ok great! Lets try this. I answered a few of these questions, but it’s really for you to answer yourself. Be raw with the response and let go of the baggage. (Recommended to me by the way)
- Create a routine
- State affirmations to yourself (optional)
- Get an organizer!
- Schedule what you need to do
- FOLLOW THAT SCHEDULE!
- Declutter your space
- Study your craft
- Practice makes perfect
- Repeat ALL DAY EVERYDAY
