The 46-year-old mother of three has a work ethic that is unmatched. And, during her recent inspirational TED Talk, she compared her hustle to none other than Beyoncé‘s.
“For me my work is at all times, building a nation out of thin air, it is manning the troops, it is painting a canvas, it is hitting every high note, it is running a marathon, it is being Beyoncé. It is all of those things at the same time,” she said.
The brilliant mind behind all of our favorite series – Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How To Get Away With Murder – got candid when she admitted that sometimes she gets burned out. Before writing her critically acclaimed book, Year Of Yes, Shonda copped to losing what she describes as her “hum,” a rhythm that allows her to balance all of her personal and professional endeavors.
“I stopped loving work. I couldn’t restart the engine. The Hum would not come back. I was doing the same things I always did, 15-hour days, working straight through the weekend. But there was no hum,” she said.
So what does Shonda do when her “hum” is missing? All you need is 15 minutes to watch her TED Talk to find out.
