Hard Work and Smart Work – Zika Nwaise

Over the weekend, I attended a training and I thought to share with us some of the things I took home from that day.

One of the facilitators spoke to us about the ‘value of a wasted minute’. He said,”There are two types of people in this world;

There are those who are always extremely busy,yet do not achieve productivity. These type of people are the ones who are always actively doing something at every particular point in time. You can never call them lazy because they can never be caught idle.They take time to do lots of unimportant things and end up not achieving anything, because all they do is ‘almost get work done’.

The second type of people are those who do the things that should be done as soon as possible, then spend the rest of their time doing other things.This set of people can never be called lazy either, but might not be actively up and about like the first group,but you know what, these people are always more productive.

The difference between these two groups is, they both work hard but the second group works smart.

So, I ask you BIE readers, when you wake up in the morning, how long does it take you to begin your activities? Do you have a to-do list for the day? How do you spend your day? Do you make sure that you achieve everything on your to-do list before you go to bed?

Schedule your activities for each day and ensure that your day is not just busy but also highly productive.

Have a productive day ahead.
