I despise the quote “Work Smarter not Harder.”
I’m shocked that many people believe that hard work is not absolutely necessary.
I’m shocked that many people believe that they can achieve success without consistent work and sacrifice.
I’m shocked that many people believe they can “out think” the laws of success by simply “working smarter.”
There is no shortcut.
If success is the goal, hard work is a major part of the process. We must commit to working extremely hard – over a long period of time.
Working smart is important too. I too believe that we must make intelligent decisions with our time and energy. Strategy and efficiency is vital!
However, intelligence does not replace work ethic, for we must commit to both! In fact, the quote should read “Work Smarter AND Work Harder.” Hmmm, I like the sound of that… Work Smarter AND Work Harder!
