    In today's workforce, most people feel obligated to work hard. Working hard is assumed to be correlated with delivering results, meeting deadlines, and overcoming obstacles. But is it really? While working hard is seen by many as an obligation, working smart (the more effective and sustainable driver of success) remains completely optional and up to you. I spent many of my 20 years in advancing leadership roles in corporate America working hard to get ahead. But my best years were never my hardest. Despite being exposed to the best professional development and coaching programs on the market, I noticed that I was often mentored and persuaded to apply an effort- and disciplined-based approach that included more hours, more stress, and more fatigue. These patterns were never sustainable. Over time, my performance and satisfaction eroded when I relied on working way too hard. What I discovered first hand and later one-on-one working with my clients is that much of the advice we apply is extremely ineffective at enabling our best work.
