Hard work is no longer important in this world

Only those who lack the smarts work hard.

Sure, the new recruits to major investment firms work very hard in the first couple of years.

If they survive, they don’t really have to work hard for the rest of their lives.

Smart people just work when they feel like. They create the machine which will make them money for the rest of their lives and much beyond so there is no need to work hard.

I personally have never really worked hard in my entire life. I just worked enough to not get fired.

People get fired even if they work very hard. For whatever reasons. Smart people find a balance of working and following own interest. How is it done? I don’t know your work environment. Smart people can figure it out on their own.

Work hard and play hard does not work in today’s world.

Work just as much as you need, and play hard.


Sorry, the world has no need for the bottom 90%.

The only thing which is important is that 95% of the world’s wealth is owned by less than 2% of the whole population, and the 1% owns more than 70% of the world.

If your IQ is not in the top 90%, better try to be good at soccer or singing. That’s the only way to propagate your genes in this world.

The world is going to enter Type I civ soon, but without most of the ‘extra mouth’.
