Climb that tree and work smart

Work Smart

Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run; hurry and scurry puts you further behind.

Proverbs 21: 5 msg

When I lived and worked in the DC area, Air Force personnel would repeatedly remind us “Let’s work smart and not just hard!”

Thomas Edison said, “Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.”

There is a time and a place to hack away at the underbrush with your machete.

But if we really want to find your way out of the jungle, we start by climbing the tallest tree and looking around.

Speed without direction is pointless, and efficiency is no substitute for planning.
