There's no substitute for hard work.
Thomas Edison said that, and I'll take his word for it. If there was a substitute available, he probably would have known about it.
Believe it or not, today is Work Harder Day. What on earth does that mean? Should we be working harder than the people beside us? Harder than we usually do? Harder than we've ever worked before?
Mr. Edison also said "There's a way to do it better. Find it." I've been seeing articles about working smarter instead of harder, and that just seems like sound advice to me.
What about putting your money to work for you?
Tickets are now on sale for Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation's Lotto for Life. It's a smart idea. Not only does every ticket sold support local health care...the person who holds the winning one will suddenly find themselves with $100,000 worth of alternatives to hard work.
