“A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought, there is visible labor and there is invisible labor” wrote Victor Hugo.
It’s an interesting quote because in looking back at your work, how much unnecessary visible labor have you done because of a lack of invisible labor?
People see others hard at work and they are impressed even though the work they are doing might be completely unnecessary. People see others sitting in place thinking and they wonder “couldn’t he be doing something valuable with his time?”
Combine good planning with hard work and great things can be done. Just hard work or just good planning usually results in nothing successful being accomplished.
Just something to think about
Have a great day!
