    If you're watching this video and getting angry at the message, think about this: when you're on your deathbed, will you think... 'damn, I'm glad I worked 80 hours a week and barely saw the people I love', or would you look back on that time as lost time?

    I fucking guarantee you it'll be the latter.

    Work is so unimportant compared to love and happiness. The hustle is bullshit. I've achieved far more by being smart in how I learn and spend my time than I ever did in my years of sleepless nights and ridiculous hours.

    Stop pushing yourself so hard. Someone who is happy and not overworked could do a better job in 32 hours, what someone in 50+ hours of overwork could ever manage.

    His message is great. It's something every respectable person I know lives by, and something I know a lot of people I respect regret not doing.

    You might read this and think, who the hell is Luke Jones? He's not well known or important, but that's fine. I'm cool with that. My Mum doesn't know who Tobias Van Schneider is. She doesn't know who Paul Rand is. She doesn't even know who Steve Jobs is. Don't chase fame or hustle. It's so fucking irrelevant.
