Ever heard about the story of the 2 lumberjacks? Given the same task to cut down 10 acres of forest, one lumberjack believes in working hard, while the other believes in working smart. Anyway, to cut a long story short, think about the following quote:

“Working hard and being lazy are not mutually exclusive, although this is what most of us have been led to believe. Working or learning smart, on the other hand, is the path of the productive and efficient.” – The Laziness Paradox Sam Gendreau (read about the full story here)

The bottom line is, always sharpen your weapon (as in the lumberjack’s story), and utilize tools (in our case!) to help you work smart!
