This is a must read for anyone that’s struggled at work. I know I have.
For decades we heard that hard work was the number-one factor in a person’s success or failure, in business or in any other arena.
We worked hard in school and were rewarded with good grades and approval from the grown-ups, so we brought our hard-work mindset into the workplace.
Hard work is important. I subscribe to the old adage that anything worth doing is worth doing well. Still, I learned long ago that hard work is not the key to success — not by itself. I hope you got that memo, also!
