We always hear the phrase "work smarter, not harder." The idea is to use your brain to develop a way that requires less effort, so you can accomplish more with the same amount of work.
But too often we use concept as an excuse for not working. We sit around, thinking of a better way. Meanwhile, nothing happens.
Like this blog posting, for instance. I have nothing to say today, but I post anyway. Moving forward, staying in the habit of working, is extremely important. So that is the lesson of the day.
