Not just “Effort”, but “Results” or “Outcome”. It is important to differentiate between the two:
1. Cost World: Where Effort is everything & things are measured just by Effort or Cost
2. Value World: Where Outcomes are important & things are measured only by Value delivered
All of us here at WonderBiz, subscribe to the Value World philosophy, where in the end, all that matters is only the Value that one delivers. Efforts are important, but only as much as they contribute to the Value and the impact of that Value. Consequently, Smart Work rather than pure Hard Work is what one needs to focus on.
So, the smarter you work, the better you have an impact on the outcome, and better the opportunity you have to increase your own pay!
