- Hard work leads you to success in your life. Success is always considered as the combination of both hard work and luck. Without working hard or just by sitting idle it’s become hard for one to achieve his goals. Today’s world is a competitive world. Everyone here wants to be famous and wants success in his life and to succeed in life you need to be a hard working person. You need to be determined in any job you have. Employers are looking for people who they cannot trust to be responsible, hard workers. If you can show them that you can efficiently get your work done, then they will be more likely to get promotion and rises. Constant vigilance and preparedness to work is the best price we have to pay for success in life.
Work is a privilege and a pleasure and idleness is a luxury that none can afford. Man is born to work and prosper in life. He’s like steel, shines in use and rust in rest. Man makes the best of his time. Things acquired by hard work are much sweeter than those he gets by accident. Hard work does not necessarily guarantee success but no success can be possible without hard work and remember hard work beats talent when talent does not work hard. So, we can conclude that nothinbg can be gained without hard work.
Hard work is the basis for everything worthwhile you will achieve in life.
If work is applying your ability, then hard work is applying your ability with focus and intensity to the exclusion of other possibilities.
- Farming is hard work because you can't take a vacation in the summer.
- Extreme programing is hard work because your customer, your group and your partner all direct your attention.
- Cheating on your spouse is hard work because you can never relax and just be yourself.
- Writing wiki is easy work, perhaps the easiest writing of consequence ever invented.
Work is the antithesis of leisure. When people play Ultimate Frisbee for fun, they're cooperative and pleasant. When people play for a cash prize, it ceases being fun, cooperative or pleasant and also ceases to be leisure. Work is that which is necessary, unpleasant and even downright evil. Work inspired the quote "This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time."
Any attempt to make the terms work and leisure compatible is obfuscation and double-speak. It is no coincidence that talk about how to make work more "fulfilling" comes from management circles.
omething seems wrong here.
Its not often you see " everything worthwhile you will achieve in life" and " cheating on your wife " in the same context. Maybe if i ever have a wife I'll understand this better !!
HardWork is the process of changing both the world and yourself so that at the end you and the world have become more connected: you've become more real to other observers in the world and they have become more real to you.
Such transformations are surely hard, but should work that achieves less be considered easy? Probably not.
Such transformations are not hard. People have this idea that being, say, a political activist means one is a humourless sort engaged in endless toil. The only reason people think that worthwhile activities like political activism are hard is because they want to justify to themselves why they're not engaged in them and because the ProtestantWorkEthic is a cultural assumption. Because political activism is clearly worthwhile, people assume that it requires hard work even in the face of contrary evidence. If people believed in something opposite the ProtestantWorkEthic, then genuine civic participation would be considered a pleasure instead of a chore.
How much work is to be found in an activity is at least partly caused by the attitude people bring to it. The effect works both individually and collectively. Individually, if people think that something is hard then they won't find the pleasure in it. Collectively, if society at large thinks something is hard then the few individuals who attempt it will find it harder going.
There are many different activities requiring different degrees of effort and compulsion. On one extreme are activities which require no compulsion, like having sex, on the other extreme are activities which require much compulsion, like slave labour. Most activities fall somewhere in between. Those activities could then be termed leisure or work with equal preference. However, if someone believes that only work is worthwhile then they will characterize all these 'mixed leisure-work' activities by their work component. The problem then is that this person lumps all worthwhile activity with abject slavery. It is far preferable to lump all of the worthwhile activities with sex so that one can avoid implicitly condoning of slavery. Therefore, what makes political activism worthwhile is its leisure component and certainly not its work component.
Hard work is relegated to those things which are not worthwhile. It's relegated precisely to those activities which achieve less.
Hard work is an indication that you should stop, stand back and look for alternatives. Not many things is really hard in the sense that they hurt you. Difficult, strenuous, intense maybe, but not painfully so.
You may be the only person who's responsible for making your life happen, but that doesn't mean you have to kill yourself trying to live.
Remember, if you're stuck between a rock and a hard place, learn to fly.
