#019: Work Less And Get Ahead

Mar 3, 2022

Learn a smarter strategy for getting ahead that requires you to work less.

Everyone is working hard.  When I ask anyone ‘how it’s going’, their standard answer is ‘it’s really busy’. 

We go through our workdays so busy and working so hard.  Why do we do this? And I think the bottom line answer on this is, you do it to get ahead. 

Trying to do as much as you can, as well as you can is a formula for success that’s worked for you in the past. 

When you’re in the first 10 years of your career,  it feels like working hard is what you’re supposed to do; you’re paying your dues and putting in your time. And working hard, worked. You were rewarded and congratulated.  Your career grew.

But you’re not a newbie anymore and it still feels like you’re working your butt off all the time. And not only are you working harder than ever, but you’re not getting ahead as quickly as you used to. 

You need to change strategies to one that offers a way better return on your effort.  

In this episode, I’ll cover why working hard is not the best growth strategy for seasoned professionals.  If you want to get ahead faster, you actually need a smarter strategy that requires you to work less.
