Work Hard and Play Harder

The question I’m asked the most is, “How do you get so much done all the time?” Stratego

My answer is quite simple: I’ve learned how to really put a lot of hard work down into a really short period of time, so that I can free up more time to pursue my passions when I’m done my other work. In other words, I love the grind. But there’s more to it. Because I needed a way to put it all into a system, so that I could always have more time when I wanted it, so that I could basically free up my afternoons to be about whatever I wanted them to be about (often times, writing or shooting video).

Work hard and play harder.

My colleague and COO, Rob Hatch, developed a course called Work Like you’re On Vacation, and I was its first guinea pig. I’m happy to report that I learned a ton from the process. More so, it’s really helped me find even more ways to share what I know with you. To that end, I want to invite you to consider a webcast.

Join Us Thursday

Join Rob Hatch and myself for a micro-course about success and getting more done called Love the Grind, an exploration into what I do that leads me towards success. It’ll be one hour live on January 24th at 7pm ET (yes, it will be recorded), and during that time, I’ll give you a bit of a framework for what I do, how I get as much accomplished as I do, and more. To see the outline of what I’ll cover, click here.

The experience will be vibrant with questions & answers for people who can tune in live, but even if you can’t, you’ll be invited to ask Rob and me questions after the event, and we’ll answer you via email, so you can participate, even if it’s not in your time zone.

Sign Up Fast

We’ve got limited seating for this webinar as our software has an upper limit on attendance, so if you’re interested, sign up now. I’m fairly sure this will be a very limited engagement, as it samples some of what Rob covers in his course, Work Like You’re On Vacation, as well as material you’ll only hear during this webcast.

I hope to see you there. : ) runs on the Genesis Framework

    Chris – I thought your blogging calendar was about 1-6 on info to sales posts. If I look through the last 6 or 7 posts, they’re more sales focused. I don’t have a problem with this, just commenting. Are you changing your strategy or approach to writing?

    • Chris Brogan

      Nope. Just putting out what I do. In general ,you’re right. Thanks for pointing it out.

  • Natalie Vijlbrief

    As 7pm ET means middle of night for me I would love to be able to see this webinar at a later time. Could you keep me informed?

    • Chris Brogan

      Hi Natalie – the choice is to purchase it and watch it at your leisure, if you’d like. It won’t be offered at other times at this point. Hopefully that’ll work. Simply purchase and watch at your own time. : )

  • Aaron McHugh

    Chris-great word. It is true that we fill the amount of time we have with a proportionate sense of urgency. More time=we spend more time. Less time=more urgency.

    • Chris Brogan

      True and urgency never helps anyone. : )

  • Paul Jarvis

    I’ve chalked my efficiency up to the fact that while I’m passionate about and have enjoyed the work I do (been self-employed 15+ yrs now), I have a life outside of work. So I work hard to get what I need done and then head out to enjoy the other parts of my life. It’s served me well too.

  • Joseph Manna

    Great way to open up and share how you’re productive. I think we’d all like to know what’s a day in the life of Chris is like and how you get it all done.

  • Scott Ayres

    Love the concept of working like you’re on vacation. Very intriguing. And I’m seeing more people doing these paid webcast, which tend to be pitch free and all content. So instead of the “Come to my free webinar where I’ll give content for 15 minutes and pitch you for 2 hours to buy”, this is quite interesting. Have you seen better results with this type of setup?

    Work hard and play harder is a great mantra of success. If you can balance your life with work and fun then success is yours.

  • CallTheMarketingGuy

    Work Hard, Play Harder and most importantly.. GIVE BACK. I think on the road to success one of the daily things we should do is do something positive for another person. If everyone did this, the world’s problems would solved in a generation.

    Work hard and play harder is quite interesting. I think play can also lower your stress levels, boost your optimism, and increase your motivation and improve concentration and perseverance.
