Drawing from the best practices of Echoing Green’s Fellows, Echoing Green uncovered a framework for developing successful careers with social impact: Heart + Head = Hustle. This framework is the backbone for Echoing Green's Work on Purpose book.
We define your “heart” as those issues, ideas, and people that move you. These are the issues and ideas that make your heart beat faster, be it because you are so deeply compelled by them, because you are angered by them, or because they bring you joy.
We define your “head” as your skills, abilities, knowledge, connections, and everything else you bring to the table.
When you build a life and a career that aligns your heart and your head, in which you work from both of these hemispheres, you achieve what we call “hustle.” This refers to those times in which you are really moving. You are in the zone, losing track of time, doing the work you’d do for free (even when you get paid for it!) Why? Because you are driven by something extraordinary: your personal purpose.
