We believe this is simply not true. In fact, we consider you can accomplish a lot and probably much more by working intelligently and doing things better.
We’re not saying to be lazy but, in the end, we are pretty sure there’s more to success than only hard work. In reality, working hard may simply not be enough.
Maybe your boss can be impressed by committed employees that work long hours. But maybe he could be impressed even more by happier efficient employees that accomplish more working less.
Doing the Right Things Right
Some people just don’t work on the right things. There’s no point on working hard if you work on irrelevant stuff.
Take some time to identify priorities and focus more on these tasks. You probably can’t accomplish everything so try to concentrate on realizing what’s truly important.
