Work hard, and you will earn good rewards. Work smart, and you will earn great rewards. Work hard and work smart, and you will earn extraordinary rewards....You have probably heard this phrase a hundred times, “you have to work smart not hard to succeed”. Being smart is about making the right choices. Smart people move up the ladder real fast. But they also value the importance of hard work. Your idols, heroes, and every successful person you know worked hard and made important and calculated choices before they reaped the rewards of success.As they reached the pinnacle of success, they grew more experienced, made less mistakes, improved their decision making skills and made the most of selected opportunities. And this resulted in something that saved them a lot of time, effort and energy. You can only give anything your best shot and work hard towards your goals.
