What is hard work? Is it work that requires a lot of energy; work that translates directly into accomplished tasks? Is it mentally taxing work? Is it physically taxing work?
When it comes to working hard, I typically think of hard work as manual labor and as work that is measured by the number of tasks accomplished. I rarely consider mentally challenging work to be hard work, yet mentally challenging work is the hardest work for me to do.
It is difficult to have dreams, when the act of having a dream leaves you vulnerable. Perhaps this is what I find so difficult about mentally challenging work. While I don't necessarily need a big vision to accomplish manual labor jobs, I do need a big vision to accomplish mind work. Big visions create big opportunities for failure and success. The former of these two extremes often outweighs the later, in my mind. These are my evening thoughts for the night.
