Will Smith, The Wise

Posted on April 5, 2010. Filed under: Food for Thought | Tags: , |

It’s one thing to be “talented,” to have never worked for something and be “good” at it. And it’s another to have such the hardest work ethic that you can’t help but succeed if you just will yourself to do it.

You think this came in a few seconds?

The one analogy I like is that you shouldn’t focus on building a wall, but focus on laying the best damn brick you perfectly can. It’s true that sometimes work ethic trumps natural talent, but even the hardest workers don’t just focus on working hard.

What one thing the hardest workers I’ve met do is focus on the right things and are so set on not only working hardest, but working perfectly…

“If people knew how hard I worked to gain my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful.” -Michelangelo, 1475-1564, Painter, Sculptor and Architect

When you hear those that are most successful, you notice a certain obsession over the tiniest details. Sure they may not be the prettiest folks around, but they sure look at everything they can do to better what they must!

Would you consider yourself a hard worker? If you do, do you consider yourself not only working hard, but working towards perfection?
