Work smart and work hard

Everyone may have heard of a story about two woodcutters in the forest.

Here is the edited version of that story.

  1. Mg Mg

He went to the forest early in the morning and started cutting wood at 6 am and took little time to rest except 15 mins for lunch and worked continuously till 6:15 pm.

Finish cutting 3 tress per day

Working hours of Mg Mg : 12 hours

His title: Mr Work Hard

2. Aung Aung

He went to the forest in the morning and started cutting wood at 9 am and took 10 min break every 1 hour and 30 mins for nutritious lunch, and worked till 4:00 pm.

Finish cutting 6 trees per day.

Working hours of Aung Aung: 5:30 hours

His title: Mr Work Smart

Why does their productivity show such a difference? Aung Aung uses the 10 min break by sharpening his axe and make sure to have enough energy by giving enough time for good lunch. 😊 As a result, there is no doubt that working smart helps Aung Aung become a better woodcutter. So, is he the best? The answer of mine is “Nope”!

3. Lin Lin

He went to the forest early in the morning and started work at 6 am and took 10 min break every 1 hour (of course, to sharpen his axe) and 30 mins for nutritious lunch, and worked till 6:00 pm.

Finish cutting 10 trees per day.

Working hours of Lin Lin: 9:40 hours

His title: Mr Work Smart + Work Hard
