Hard work versus smart workWhat you all think which is more required these days?
As per my personal experience I have been given suggestion to do smart work rather than hard work. This smart work also includes working on yourself which is good also as it boost ones confidence but it also includes being extra nice (buttering) to your seniors for getting promotions. My super head also gave me the same suggestion to be extra sweet (buttering) to my acting head for good increments as by only doing hard work I am not getting fruitful results and ultimately I am the sufferer. Yes it do affects a lot. I do feel inferior and depressed for the same reason but at the same time its against my ego to do buttering. I know my hard-work gives me results lately when all the charm of achieving a particular thing dies. Because I cannot do both hard and smart work. So how to handle this situation? Kindly give genuine suggestions that I can also implement to overcome this problem.
