How To Work Smarter, Not Harder

Tip to work wisely not hard

How To Work Smarter, Not Harder, The phrase “to work skillfully and not to work hard” can have a very different meaning for everyone. After researching that saying, I discovered that the term was coined by Allen F. Morgenstern in the 1930s. As an industrial engineer, he created a simplification program to increase productivity with minimal effort.

There are different opinions on this point, some agreeing, while others disagree. These ideas come from an individual perspective. My opinion, or my opinion, depends on the way you agree with the sentence, work smartly and not hard. Let me explain.

In the past, I wrote an article entitled ‘Why I Say Professional Organizers Are Lazy’. The context of this article addresses the word work smarter not harder. In the article, I explain why I say that. In short, professional editors find ways to complete tasks with very little effort.

Everyone has their own way of doing things, and as I have said before, what works for one may not work for another.

Think about how you work on projects and activities, both professionally and personally. Then look at the list below to see which of these methods will work for you. Applying the techniques wisely and not too hard will allow you to do things easier and as a result, reduce your stress in the process.


Naturally, this method will be the first on the list! When all your belongings are in order, you can get what you need right away. You do not waste time looking for the things you need to work on a project or project. Your spaces are clear and no clutter can distract you from thinking clearly.

Brain Dump

You probably have a lot of things going around in your head. Get rid of the brain by taking it out of your head and putting it on paper, or if you like electricity, your computer, or your phone. Knowing what to do is the first step.

To-do list

Now that you understand what you want to do, but those tasks are on your to-do list. You may have more than one list. I know many will tell you not to do that but sometimes it is necessary. For example, you might have one to-do list and another to-do list at home. Well, it’s not so confusing that way. At this point, you want to prioritize activities on your list.


Applying procedures is a good way to work smarter and not harder. I am a big fan of using processes to do repetitive tasks. Whether related to work or personal, everyone has repetitive tasks of some sort.

If you summarize the process by writing down the steps and referring to the process each time you do the work, it will become a habit or practice and you do things quickly.

But do not ignore them and stop referring to these processes, or risk losing the step. It may not seem like a big deal, but it can be time and/or money, and in the professional world it can be dangerous for your career.

Remove Steps

This is a great way to simplify procedures. As you perform the process and the situation changes, adjust the process to suit the changes. This may be done in a way that removes the step or process steps. By removing the step, the result may save time. Be careful, though, not to sacrifice quality in your efforts to simplify the process.

Plan All

When you plan all the activities, projects, and appointments, there is no question of when and where you should do it at any time.

Use your to-do list to organize all activities and appointments, whether in a paper program or on an electronic device. Check your paper editor regularly, or set up sound alerts on your cell phone to stay in the system.

Include extra time for travel or unexpected events that may arise. Leisure time needs to be included in your busy schedule. Leisure time is not a waste of time, it is a time to combine, relax and refresh to achieve a successful smart work plan that is not difficult.
