By itself, I think this advice is misleading. Many of you already have heard of the idea of work smart instead of work hard, so there is nothing new when I bring that up. Maybe Brian Tracy's material I'm listening too is dated and just hasn't been updated to the idea of work smart.
I prefer the idea's of the 4-hour workweek by Timothy Ferriss where he talks about really trying to just do what is absolutely necessary and let others do everything else. To give Brian Tracy credit, he also talks about this saying that we should figure out what is our time worth and only doing things that make that much money and pay someone else to do everything else.
I'm also cautious about the advice to work hard because I know times in my life when I felt I was working hard and achieved little success and other times when I was barely working and yet achieved much greater success. I think there are more important factors than simply working hard.
What do you think?
