In the world of business, smartness has nothing to do with intelligence or wisdom.It’s all about projecting an image of cleverness and invincibility.The word ‘smart’ has acquired a qualitative connotation over the years. when somebody says he is working hard, they say it’s not enough. He should be working smart, instead. Is it about efficiency or effectiveness?
The so called smart people tend to be domineering in nature, they care little for the feelings of those who interact with them.Sometimes, it is ruthless manipulation, at other times it’s cunning outmanoeuvring of others. Their philosophy is “ end justifies the means”.
The tragedy is, ‘ smart’ people succeed more than the good, hardworking guys.So smartness has become a virtue that is worth cultivating.
