front button Front: WORK HARD

I was in a restaurant in North Carolina in 1979, and saw a sign on the wall that made a lasting impression on me. It read:

I'm successful because I'm lucky.
I'm lucky because I work hard.
The harder I work, the luckier I get!

Who hasn't wished for a way to bring good fortune on themselves? I know I have - and here was a formula for getting lucky. I thought about it as I sat there waiting for my food, reading and re-reading that sign until it was burned into my consciousness. It made sense then, and it makes sense now.

back button Back: GET LUCKY

One of the things you have to remember about working hard, though, is that doing things that are hard isn't the same as doing hard work: If something is so difficult that it doesn't seem possible to do, there's probably a better way. The best way to work hard in that sort of a situation is to stop, take a step back so you can get a better perspective on the problem, and attack it from a different direction.

Work hard - and remember to work your brain as hard as you work your muscles - and you will get lucky. It will usually take a while, but that's one form of magic you can count on!

As always, comments are always welcome. We appreciate your feedback.
