It Will Still Be Harder Than You Think

As we become savvier in our field, we will find better ways of doing things.
We find inefficiencies in our approach and improve.
We work smarter.

The smarter we work, we posit, the easier it will get.
That’s never the case.

The work that gets you to your goal is always hard. 
It can’t be easy.
When we work smarter we are only cutting the fat.
Getting rid of the easy stuff.
This only leaves only the hard stuff on the table.

Hard work is essential to creating something with meaning.
It's the core of anything of value.
So stop thinking that hacks will make it easier.
Use them to get more out of the hard work that you owe.
