A: This is Angelina Neglia and I am sitting here with Scott MacDonald, author of Saving Investa, How an Ex Factory Worker Helped Save an Iconic Australian Company. In his book, Scott includes 25 lessons learned from his long career.
Lesson number three: Being Successful is more than just working hard. It is being organized, planning, and working smart as well as working and choosing the effort to focus on where there is reward.
Scott, most people probably think going to work every day and doing their job will lead to success. Are you saying this is not enough?
S: Angie, I recall an old song about coal miners when I was growing up. The refrain was “19 Tons and What do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt.” Those coal miners worked really hard but did not achieve financial independence or financial success. Working hard is important, but being successful is the result of more than just working hard.
