Work smart, not hard.

Being productive is a virtue. Hard work can be a part of that, but isn't always.

Sometimes...looking a the end result matters. Working hard at building homes is a virtue. Working hard building crematoriums at Auschwitz was not.

Most of the time I find hard work to be neglectful of yourself (and many others), and sometimes doggedly stupid. I think working efficiently, challenging yourself to improve, and picking yourself up after a failure are virtues. I think quality of work is more important than whether or not you killed yourself to get it done.

But there are some people (like my husband), who don't feel a sense of accomplishment if they do something a little at a time. They feel like they have to do something monumental and hard in order to get the rush of success. This is really a problem - it means they don't feel accomplished in the goal. They feel accomplished in the stress. Which sucks when it comes to things like cleaning the house. 😕

No. It is a necessity.

No, we should do everything possible to cynically exploit the system and maximize our own profit.

That's what they tell slave laborers to keep them from revolting and realizing reality.

Right, because my house I moved into last year was *not* built by workers who sweated for eight hours a day.
