The Hard Truth About Hard Work.

There’s no good replacement for hard work. No viable alternative. No efficient substitute.
Hard work is in a league of its own. And trying to find something more effective is probably why your business strategy is failing.

No great idea works if you don’t work. Hard.

It used to be a given that life demanded hard work. Every hour, from sunup to sundown, was utilized in the ongoing quest for personal advancement. If you didn’t work hard you didn’t eat. And you probably didn’t live long.

But then we learned that the way to a more “fulfilled life” was to get an education. To go to college. Instead of sweating in the field we could make more money wearing a white collar and telling other people what to do.

In fact, with an advanced degree from college we could even run an entire division of a company, retiring with a gold watch and a healthy pension .

And the journey got confused with the destination.

We started to think that working less was a sign of success. A badge of honor. That we must be smarter than everyone else around us.

But what we forgot is that the pension our grandparents earned came after 30 years of dedicated performance. The watch and golden retirement came after thousands of hours of unwavering loyalty and focus.

Today, it makes us feel special when we talk about working smarter. It makes us feel like what we do is better then the “ignorant people” who only know how to dig ditches and landscape yards.

We must be better than them.

After all, how smart can those people be, getting sweaty day after day after day when we sit in a corner office. And so, our corporate hallways are filled with executives in white collars and power ties, jaunting from meeting to meeting, preaching the accolades of efficiency and effectiveness — all the while preparing to point a finger at somebody else when things don’t work out right.

And why should it work? Why should we expect something from nothing? Better yet, how logical is it to expect that doing the bare minimum will make us elite performers?

It just doesn’t make much sense at all.

And, NO, the answer isn’t to put your head in the sand and hope that things magically get better on their own. That doesn’t make much sense either.

You should be learning from the performance of others. You should take the lessons you have had to learn the hard way and refocus your energy on ways that you can do more with less.

Just don’t confuse the destination with the journey. Working less isn’t the goal. It’s not a badge of honor.

Getting better results is the goal.

And usually that means rolling up your sleeves and doubling down on the elbow grease you bring to the game.

There is no magic elixir.  The hard truth is that you probably just need to work harder.

  5. William Lewis • Paul Brunberg A very interesting topic. In viewing the highlights, I note number four about fear. I would also add the decisions towards short-sightedness, self-serving and reactive would also be catalyzed by comfort with the status quo, and lack of knowledge/ignorance of issues. Further, I would also contribute that during a discussion where a decision is required, sometimes it’s what is not said that is unethical.
    William Lewis Paul, I’m surprised to see a high ranking military officer stating a personal opinion publicly which is obviously based on personal experience if I interpret your intention correctly as you say that which is not said and I agree is unethical, I would also go on to say the most unethical and cowardly if there’d be an ethical standard to measure.
    Dan, just bringing you some of my hard work!

    Paul Brunberg William, I view discussions on LinkedIn as a professional forum where exchanging ideas or experiences brings about differing points of view and thought on topics through the diversity of lenses members have. My points are usually based on professional reading and study on topics I have pursued. If there is an experiential illustration I can provide, I do. It may be based on a work example (with no definitive references) or through my interactions through courses or programs I have taken – not necessarily through the military. Ethics is a topic I have studied in depth. I concur with your point about unethical and cowardly actions.mindre

    William Lewis Paul, I also discuss and comment in several groups including Linked 2 Leadership of which I am a member. There is one very disturbing characteristic of these groups which is censorship. Comments are accepted delated reentered or not accepted at all to suit and compound inferior ideas which I view as grossly unethical, dictatorial and which epitomizes cowardliness. Would you view this as one of those lenses you mention? I am personally insulted by this characteristic when discussing with so called leaders of society.

    Paul Brunberg William, those groups you mentioned are considered the other lenses I spoke of. I believe we all interpret information based on our experiences and education, and how an issue’s details align with them. Our actions, our thoughts are a reflection of ourselves, maybe even our families or even society because of our conditioning as we grew and learned. Some actions/discussions are distasteful to some and acceptable to others – hence the diversity I wrote of earlier. We can only be responsible for ourselves and our thoughts. We cannot tell others how to think and act. Although there can be consequences to competing actions/thoughts.

    William Lewis Rather tell an opinion in discussion lay it open to argument and receive honest reply and there after change or agree but without discussion in the light of day there is no consensus.

    Paul Brunberg There is wisdom in your argument William.

    William Lewis Thank you and I will ask you again should we censor? I am finding this enormously difficult to accept or can you see a reason for censorship? The risk as I see it leaves important decisions in lesser hands which may catastrophic consequences.

    Paul Brunberg I can see something being censored if there is a threat of harm or damage, or if the issue is under investigation and discussion could prejudice or bias the issue. Sometimes, censorship can be perceived when in reality, the release of information is simply delayed pending the results of other actions. One thing I learned during my university studies, is that some forums are safe for the exchange of information and ideas, others require conventions of decorum, diplomacy and tact. Communication can be a very delicate thing and if someone says something, it may be perceived differently than the way they meant to say it. Further, issues like racism and bigotry cannot be tolerated.

    William Lewis Within the confines of, for example Linkedin of which I intended my question. I agree investigation, prejudice and bias situations must be protected. Racism and bigotry have no place in civilized society. In free discussion in the attempt to advance knowledge and share experience and I do not mean abusive or vulgar behavior. Merely to present possibly conflicting ideas or opinions to a group and expect this information presented without censor so as to judge its relevance to argument previously presented. In other words would you agree to your next response ( if you decide to respond ) be censored and approved before being published here and maybe not accepted without explanation, delated.

    Paul Brunberg Within the confines of a forum like LinkedIn, I agree that the free-flow of respectful and relevant thought should be allowed. If there are rules concerning content, length, or additional links or photos, I believe the moderators can edit as required. To censor is another issue and unless it is explicitly disclosed by the forum, it should not occur. If there are issues according to the moderators, they should contact the member and explain their position.

    William Lewis M.G. Paul, You are a careful man but do we agree. I, myself, an Irishman rather think a little banter and lighthearted swearing dose wonders too brighten up the mood in any stuffy old confines but alas Ms Linda Fisher Thornton advised me of the American way,’-)) but the smillys I keep.

    Linda Fisher Thornton says:
    Thanks for your comment William. That is helpful to know!

    William Lewis.
    If at times I am perceived as condescendingly judgmental, sarcastic and argumentative that is precisely my intention and in doing so provoke discussion when discourse is lost in censorship and the imbecilic notion of political correctness, I think an American innovation.

    While we’re on the education subject if I haven’t mentioned then I will mention and in mentioning some have some don’t some are born with an aptitude that transcends the formal.

    Paul. I, You might call an ‘ignorant’ man, I have no formal education also dyslexic, ADHD, manic-depressive ( happily one of the lucky ones seldom if ever depressed but joyfully manic) finished school at 14 years. In what way would formal education, in our discourse here have changed or influenced the outcome or indeed the process do you think? Was it obvious my ‘ignorance’?

    Paul Brunberg No judgements here William. People gain educations through many activities, formal education is only one way it occurs. By virtue of our discussion on this thread, we have been educating each other through our discourse.

    Paul, again, thank you. Always a pleasure to meet a man of honor and ethics you have enlightened and strengthened my reserve and determination. I will also point out that a formal degree in the hands of an ignorant man is as catastrophic as ignorance itself.
