“Nothing wears you down like trying harder instead of smarter.” – Robert Cooper
Try too hard, and watch your future vanish. Persistence gone bad is about trying the same thing, harder and faster, day after day, and expecting different results.
Step off the treadmill and take time to think, to imagine, to get inspired. Working smarter means moving in a different direction, moving beyond ordinary habit and the wisdom of the crowd.
Reduce friction, streamline your efforts, and lighten your load. Take the time to think, to imagine, and try again, only differently.
