Forbes wrote about Working Smarter Not Harder – What Does it Truly mean? “Work smarter, not harder,” is a phrase many workers have heard throughout their careers. A phrase that often conjures the image of a high-level executive on a beach with a smartphone and cocktail in hand. The phrase touches on an individual’s emotional and intellectual desire to “have it all,” but doesn’t really tell anyone how to go about working smart, not hard.
I knew a stockbroker who was told that if he called 200 people every day, for two years, he would live like no one else for the rest of his life. That was working harder. He became a success.
