Smart Work, Not Hard Work

The concept of focused efforts is that people gain more out of their work if they apply it efficiently than if they generally work hard.

There are many ways to start the process of planning a vacation that are either efficient or not.

  1. With 5 hours, you could spend time looking through old forums from 10 years ago, searching for reviews of a particular destination.
  2. With 2 hours, you could look through well-established websites and verifiable reviews of various destinations and get much more reliable information.

The difference between these two is that one is hard work with unimpressive results and the other is efficient work with much more meaningful results with less time spent.

In the battle between focused effort and general ‘hard work’, focused effort always wins.
