In today’s world, hustle is encouraged, and ”working hard” is taken to an extreme. Every day, people are overextending themselves. Working three jobs, taking twenty credit hours. We all share a running joke of not sleeping and guzzling coffee to get more work done. We crouch over our laptops, phones, tablets, or documents, exerting all of our effort to meet deadlines.
