Work Smarter Not Harder

In Dan Pink’s Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself, he closes the book with a long, excellent list of “Work Smarter Not Harder” type advice for people who want to start working for themselves.

1.Below are my favorites.

●Make a “not to” list. Prepare a list that contains all the things you shouldn’t waste your time on useless tasks, unnecessary meetings, worthless phone calls, and so on. 2. 

●Carry a notebook and pen. Thomas Edison did it. Virginia Woolf did it. And so did Charles Darwin. They carried a notebook with them everywhere and wrote down ideas that popped into their heads. 3.Trust me: This is a fantastic way to explore ideas and to weave creativity into the fabric of your life.

 4. Ask questions. Take smart people to lunch. Read. Read some more. Listen to audiobooks. Take classes. Added benefit: This makes life more interesting. Yet another benefit: Studies have shown that people who make constant learning part of their lives end up living longer.

●Guard your calendar. Make sure your time is focused on your one or two top priorities (优先). Ask yourself: “Is this how I want to be spending my time right now?” Remember: You are your calendar. 5.  

●Respond to calls and e-mails quickly. Even if your response is,“I’ll get back to you,” try to get back to people within 24 hours. They’ll appreciate the politeness.

A.Be quick, but don’t hurry.

B.So treat your calendar with respect.

C.Become a learning machine.

D.Page through the notebook occasionally.

E.Try to begin your day the same way.

F.Then place it next to your “to do” list and stick to it.

G.Frankly, the list is so good I think everyone would benefit from it.



In modern society there is a great deal of argument about competition. Some value it highly , believing that it is responsible for social progress and prosperity . Others say that competition is bad ; that it sets one person against another ; that it leads to unfriendly relationship between people .

I have taught many children who held the belief that their self-worth relied (依赖)on how well they performed at tennis and other skills . For them, playing well and winning are often life-and-death affairs. In their single-minded pursuit ( 追求)of success , the development of many other human qualities is sadly forgotten .

However while some seem to be lost in the desire to succeed , others take an opposite attitude .In a culture which values only the winner and pays no attention to the ordinary players , they strongly blame competition . Among the most vocal are youngsters who have suffered under competitive pressures from their parents or society. Teaching these young people . I often observe in them a desire to fail . They seem to seek failure by not trying to win or achieve success . By not trying , they always have an excuse : “I may have lost . but it doesn’t matter because I really didn’t try . “What is not usually admitted by themselves is the belief that if they had really tried and lost, that would mean a lot . Such a loss would be a measure of their worth . Clearly, this belief is the same as that of the true competitors who try to prove themselves . Both are based on the mistaken belief that one’s self-respect relies on how well one performs in comparison with others . Both are afraid of not being valued . Only as this basic and often troublesome fear begins to dissolve (缓解) can we discover a new meaning in competition .
