Veronica is my evil Tarot reading twin. She lives life on her own terms and quite frankly it scares the crap out of me. Drinking before 4pm, seducing men under 25 and reading Tarot like a smutty Harlequin romance. Here’s Veronica…
If you want to regret something, work hard all the time.
There are many unoriginal hacks out there who like to expound the virtues of hard work.
And do you know what I say to that? BO-RING!
Anyone can work hard. Except lazy people.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to tell you to “work smart”…..that’s dumb too!
What I will tell you to do is this: work hard for a brief period of time and then reap the rewards!
Most people can’t do this though. They get addicted to hard work like it’s crack. They feel like they’re being good, useful people when they work hard. Then they can look down their nose at everyone else.
I once worked in a “corporate culture” and one time during an employee engagement meeting, this ass wipe named Colin* was all like “la di da, look how hard I’m working. Ooooh, I’m working so much harder than everyone else. I always give 110%”
I said “shut the fuck up Colin. 110% is impossible – it’s a mathematical lie. Don’t be an overachiever, you twat!”
I no longer work there, but my point is this….
There’s nothing wrong with working hard at something you truly love and care about. But for God’s sake, take a tea break and put your feet up and enjoy the fruits of your labor (like The Empress, above).
There is nothing worse than working hard for the sake of hard work.
So tell me….what will you NOT be working hard at this weekend????
