Work as Hard as You Can
September 14, 2021
Probably my favorite tweet of all time is one by Naval. It goes:
Work as hard as you can. Even though who you work with and what you work on are more important than how hard you work.
Over the past five years or so, one of my core beliefs has evolved from simply "work as hard you can", to the above. Now, I make sure to work on things that are important and where there is scalability. Also, I try to work as much as possible with people I trust and who share my values.
Being productive and being busy is not the same.
