Most of the time, for most of the world, no matter how hard people work at it, nothing of any significance happens. (law of twins, Gerald Weinberg.
2.3K recommends and counting, one hundred and more “I’ll fuck it too” responses. This is a gang bang already.
And the reason for this cluster fuck in progress is:

Here is a different perspective:
- Working hard does not mean doing overtime to impress your boss.
- Working hard does not result in not getting enough sleep.
- Working hard does not require ignoring your health.
- Working hard is not the addiction of the fearful insecure.
- Working hard is not made of the blunt actions of the ignorant.
Working hard is when you do hard work.
Burnouts come because you don’t pay attention to yourself. Your disconnect with family and friends comes because you are not decisive enough in your actions. You depend on bad bosses because of your bad financial situation or because society doesn’t help you in your domain of work. Working smarter doesn’t make work easier, it makes output greater.
Hard work is what makes people fight poverty in crappy places of this planet.
Hard work is what puts people in space.
Hard work is what eventually squeezes brains for cures and treatments.
Hard work is what sometimes brings people out of an arthritic social system.
Hard work is what put many children in college.
Hard work is what saves lives everyday.
If you love what you do, you will work hard, because you will inevitably get to find that part of what you do which is hard work.
If people depend on what you do, you will work hard, because you must inevitably take on the hard work to not let them down.
If you depend on what you do, you will work hard, because usually the hard work has the big rewards attached to it.

There ain’t too much I can say about this song except that the answer is blowing in the wind. It ain’t in no book or movie or TV show or discussion group. Man, it’s in the wind — and it’s blowing in the wind. Too many of these hip people are telling me where the answer is but oh I won’t believe that. I still say it’s in the wind and just like a restless piece of paper it’s got to come down some …But the only trouble is that no one picks up the answer when it comes down so not too many people get to see and know . . . and then it flies away.
As Mr. Dylan noted, if you really work hard and not just knocking yourself out of good health, wasting nights and ignoring your loved ones while forgetting to live, you will have an answer, your own personal answer.
