Six Thoughts About Work

Some days it seems that people have forgotten or maybe never knew the fundamentals of success.  Work is one of the fundamentals.  If it was easy to get what you want, you probably would not want it or would already have it.

Six thoughts:

  1. It is easier to be busy than it is to look busy.
  2. Working is easier than looking for work.
  3. It is easier to do a job right than it is to explain why you did not.
  4. The difference between excellent and just okay work is about 10% more effort.
  5. Practice does not make perfect.  Perfect practice makes perfect.
  6. Work works.

Achieving your goals is mostly just process.  But you do need to do it.

  1. Great Observations. And foundational truths. You’re preaching to the choir. The challenge is to get them inside the heads of those who need them.

  2. Many people hold delusional beliefs. The best I can hope for is a few of the ones who can read can catch on. Thanks for reading.
