Two phrases with very different meanings but a common idea runs through both…. WORK!
If your like me, you’ve been spending your days trying to figure out the best way to work smart, so you can avoid working hard! ha ha. I don’t like to say it, but you all know what I mean. Hard work is exactly that, hard. It’s difficult it’s challenging and it’s easy not to do.
Over the years it’s interested me more and more. I always thought that the guy who works smart will always finish ahead of the guy who just works hard. However, if you work smart without working hard how far are you going to really get?
As I’ve spoken about on my ‘About Me’ page, I’ve had the pleasure to meet some very successful people in the past year and those are the people that I always envisioned in my head as ‘work smart’ people. But after talking to them I started finding out a few things. I found out that a lot of them got up at 5 or 6am. That they worked so hard that sometimes they forgot to eat lunch! That they were so focused on their work that they missed sleep.
Now these guy’s and girl’s that are making it happen, many of them are already financially secure because of what their already doing. So why are they waking up at 6am and missing lunch and sleep to get more done and work harder?!… Well it’s because thats how they got there in the first place. They worked smart AND worked hard.
They worked on being as smart as they could with their work then focused on working on it as hard as they could. So now their making a success of it why would they stop? This was the most profound idea I had come across in a while. Combining working hard with working smart is in my opinion the number one, fastest way to making your endeavors, goals, dreams and life a massive success.
So that’s what I’ll be doing and I hope you consider doing the same.
