It is one of many phrases that auto roll off my tongue when wishing someone a good day at work.
Working hard isn’t the best way to get the work done is it? I don’t think so.
Work efficiently. Now that's the ticket!!
To me, work hard means keep working at all times and never take a break for anything! You know, army bootcamp style. “Work hard” was pressure on me.
“Work hard” has been good to me though.
I needed “work hard” because “work efficiently” sounds so weak, I would have walked all over it in primary school and college . It sucks that I must retire it from my vocabs.
Maybe I shouldn’t retire “work hard” just yet. Just in case I have a knuckle-headed kid like me someday, I’ll teach him to work efficiently. But I’ll have “work hard” and its pressure on stand-by just in case the rascal plays more than he works.
Happy Monday to you! Work efficiently. J
