the hustle issue

FRESH OUT OF COLLEGE, I moved to London to embark on my career, offering to work for free as a fashion assistant just to get my foot in the door. Strapped for cash, I traded nightly housekeeping duties at a hostel near Victoria for a bottom bunk in a room with seven Australian and South African guys. In the hostel’s lobby was a pool table, and with some coaching from my new roommates, my skills became fairly decent. My hustle was better. Good enough on most nights to relieve the American travelers who happened by of 10 to 20 quid—money for food and a tube ticket each day. Before long I landed my first paying job in the fashion world. The way I see it, I’ve been hustling in one way…

hustle

IT’S WHAT MAKES ME walk out of parties, away from girls I would have cut my wrists to screw 10 years ago, because I know I need to wake up early and work. Even now, making the money I do. Even now, when most people would kill to get what I’ve got. THERE IS NO such thing as luck. There is only work. THERE IS ALSO staying out of your own way. For most people, this is the hardest. AT 16 I DROPPED out of high school. At 22 I got into Cornell. At 25 I got a job on Wall Street. At 28 I quit the job because I was the Great American Novelist. Wrote one book, then another; couldn’t even get an agent, let alone a publisher. At…

MY FAVORITE DRINK I DIDN’T EVER REALLY ENJOY a drink—at least not properly—until after I retired, in 2013. My career lasted 21 years, and I didn’t consume a lot of alcohol during that time. I couldn’t. Of course, there was the odd night, celebrating a win. But even that was a challenge. One memorable example was in 1999, when Manchester United won the league championship. Typically, you’d have a big celebration afterward. We didn’t, because we had to play six days later in the FA Cup final. We won that, but then we had to get ready for the championship final a week later. By the time we won the treble, we were so exhausted we could hardly stand. So really, I had to wait quite a while to savor a glass…

THE FORMULA BEHIND a winning NBA franchise is well established— shower millions on a superstar, add a worthy sidekick in his prime, throw in a fading great, and fill the bench with role players and specialists. The Atlanta Hawks have triumphed with an altogether different strategy: simply running other teams ragged. While opponents may boast the names, talent, and raw athleticism, the Hawks have created a singular, terrifying force out of many moving parts, all under the banner of teamwork and grit. It begins with the nightmare matchup of center Al Horford with forward Paul Millsap, whose game is flourishing in a way it never could in the wastelands of Salt Lake City. Up top is Jeff Teague, a hungry young point guard whose insane speed, cuts, and dishes leave defenders…

the swede hereafter

IT GIRL THOSE LAYING EYES ON Alicia Vikander for the very first time are advised to savor the moment. Drink it in. Because before you know it, the girl will be everywhere. The ravishing 26-year-old actress with the dark, smoldering gaze and estimable bone structure is largely unknown outside her native Sweden, except to devotees of high-toned costume drama who took note of her winning performances in Anna Karenina and A Royal Affair. But 2015 will herald her transformation into a star, with a veritable Vikander film festival. She began the year as a bewitching femme fatale opposite Ewan McGregor in the Down Under heist thriller Son of a Gun and turned up a month later with Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, and a mess of dragons in the swords and sorcery epic…
