I am listening to some Brian Tracy materials and one of his recurring themes is that hard work leads to success.  My impression of his advice is the traditional advice: Early to bed, early to rise, makes one healthy wealthy and wise.  Work hard and you will be successful.

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?

Hard working always make a way to give you success but smart work isn't able to always give you success. Because hard working grantees you the success but the smart work can go wrong in the meanwhile.

Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
