All our lives, we have been taught that we need to work hard. Hard means…not soft; solid and firm to the touch; unyielding to pressure and impenetrable or almost impenetrable… from Dictionary.com.
We can still have focus and work steadily. We can work from home or from a cafe or even from a library unless your job calls for you to be hands on such as a welder or an electrician. Even then as a welder, you want to work steadily and with focus, and with flexibility. If you do everything hard and one way, your welds may break.
We are at a time in society when the concept of work is changing. What is your new definition of work?
