What Is Hardwork Theory?
Why is it that the first question people often ask when they meet you is what you do for a living?
In part, it’s because it’s an easy question to ask and answer, but below the surface expectations of a casual conversation, people put a lot of emphasis on how you work, for whom, and for what reasons.
Ever since our cavemen ancestors had to venture forth to bring home woolly mammoth meat, people have judged themselves by their work, their productivity, and their compensation. We derive a great deal of value from our jobs, not only in terms of our take-home pay, but also in terms of our ambitions and our self of self-worth.
Unfortunately, this means that people who are slogging through an unrewarding job just to pay the bills often feel like they’re falling behind. Others who cannot get a job at all feel even worse, especially if they have a spouse and children to support.
The roadmap for the journey from bad jobs, bad paychecks, bad work-life balance, and bad self-esteem towards success.
Think back to the worst job you’ve ever had to work. Perhaps it was mowing lawns in 100 degree heat; perhaps it was cleaning toilets; perhaps it was moving numbers around in an Excel spreadsheet and never once feeling like you made a difference.
Perhaps the job itself wasn’t all that bad, but your boss was a micromanager or your coworkers were catty gossips or your paycheck needed an extra zero on the end of it to feel worthwhile. Bad jobs are part and parcel of our modern world, a reflection of the need for both skilled and unskilled labor. Those who commit to their skills earn a place in offices, boardrooms, and studios, while those who do not commit to their skills only earn a place behind a desk, behind the scenes, behind the month’s rent.
Mastering The Sacred
Our goal at Hard Work Theory is to provide the tools and the roadmap for the journey from bad jobs, bad paychecks, bad work-life balance, and bad self-esteem towards success.
We hope our site can be a valuable resource for those who feel stuck in life, because no person goes through life without ever feeling stuck, and few feelings in life will wear you down faster than the feeling that you cannot do anything to improve your life.
At Hard Work Theory we aim to change this mindset by changing your everyday habits, giving you the functional knowledge and motivation to come to a better place in life, no matter how the odds seem stacked.
We’ve Experienced Success And Failure In Life
Our team at Hard Work Theory knows what it means to feel success and failure alike. Our writers have worked in different industries and different roles, but all of them have had days, weeks, months, and years where nothing went their way.
We may not be able to give you picture-perfect advice about bettering your life in each specific function, but we can give you recommendations on life changes and strategies that can help any person to realize self-improvement and make progress towards their greatest goals.
Self-Improvement May Be The Hardest Thing A Person Will Do In Their Entire Life.
Of course, if self-improvement was easy, we would all be millionaires with six-pack abs and a wide group of friends all wanting to spend time with us. Self-improvement is hard, make no mistake about it. It may be the hardest thing a person will do in their entire life.
Many of our contemporary fears, like fears of fears of moving to a new place or starting a new relationship, reflect how easy it is to become comfortable with “just good enough.”
Hard Work Theory helps its visitors to overcome this inertia, to break through the forces of doubt and procrastination, and to see progress as you go. A better job, a better network of people, a better connection with yourself, and a better feeling for your future are some of the most practical rewards for people who have had enough with the status quo.
If you believe that there’s no better time for a change in your life than today, Hard Work Theory can help you to create, stick to, and ultimately succeed at a plan for improvement.
