Society doesn't reward hardwork but it rewards effectiveness. It rewards those who can get from Point A to Point B—that’s it.
For example we don’t care how long Apple takes, or how hard they work, to create a new phone.we only care if it works.If Apple creates their iPhones using a magical genie lamp, without using any effort at all,we’d still pay the full price for it.We’d still reward them.
If Apple takes ten years to make a phone expending lots of effort and working really hard—but the phone doesn’t work, we won’t pay a dime for it.In other words, we won’t reward them.
Anyone can learn to work effectively, through practice.
1. We must begin by deciding where we want to go.What’s our destination ?
2. We must come up with a theory for getting there.What’s the path to the destination ?
3. We must test this theory in action, by trying to get to the destination.
4. Then we must receive feedback and revise their theory.
5. Repeat this cycle—theory, action, feedback—until we arrive at our destination.
The best theory is the most effective one, the one that can get to the destination the fastest while spending the least energy possible.
If someone doesn’t work at all, if they sit on the couch all day, doing something is better than doing nothing.But that’s because doing something is often more effective than doing nothing.
The second instance where working hard seems to be good advice is where effective work has already be done.
For example, someone stands in a factory pushing a button all day.They work hard and make a lot of money.But working hard only works as a strategy because someone else made pushing the button effective.
Someone who learns to work effectively learns to be the captain of their ship.They learn how to steer their life in any direction they choose.They know how to row to their destinations and bring others along with them.
Someone who learns to work hard learns how to be a good crew member. They only learn how to row the boat, so they’re always dependent on a captain to steer the ship and without a captain to guide them to their destination, they’re lost.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
