Hard work is smart work. Working hard leads to working smarter.
It’s not the other way around. It doesn’t work in reverse.
That’s because hard work creates busyness. And busyness forces you to make better choices.
You get the most done when you’re already doing things.
You are the most productive when you already have too many things on your plate.
That’s because you begin to realize what is most important.
Your priorities become exponentially more clear when you don’t have time to do everything right now.
That only happens when you’re working hard.
The more you do, the more you realize what you should be doing.
And as you do more of what you should be doing, you get even better at that.
Execution leads to better execution which leads to even better outcomes.
Hard work is your race to the top. It is what pulls the best out of you.
At some point you have to stop planning and preparing and talking and sharing — and just go get started.
The more you do, the better you get.
Get to work.
