Success Story: It’s Not How Hard You Try

Work hard and you will be rewarded. It sounds simple.

But remember what it was like studying for a test? Some kids studied forever and did poorly. Some studied hardly at all and made great grades. You can spend incredible effort inefficiently and gain nothing. Or, you can
spend modest efforts efficiently and be rewarded.
The purpose of what you do is to make progress, not just to expend yourself. Achenbach’s Pastries was a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania,
institution.The family-owned bakery had a loyal customer base and had
operated profitably for more than four decades. In the 1990s the owners decided to expand—to offer deli sandwiches and other goods and to add new locations for both retail and wholesale sales. The bakery’s owners
had never worked harder in their lives than they did after the expansion. And in return for all their hard work,they got less money and the threat
of bankruptcy because they could not keep up with debts incurred in the expansion. Earl Hess, a retired business executive, provided capital to
keep the company in business and then ultimately bought the entire
operation. He looked at things as an objective observer and found that
the bakery was doomed by inefficiencies.“They had too many products.
Ninety percent of sales came from 10 percent of the products. They were
losing their aprons making low-volume items.”   Hess says when he took over the company he knew:These people couldn’t possibly have worked any harder,but they could have worked smarter.” 

Effort is the single most overrated trait in producing success. People rank it as the best predictor of success when in reality it is one of the least
significant factors. Effort, by itself, is a terrible predictor of outcomes
because inefficient effort is a tremendous source of discouragement,
leaving people to conclude that they can never succeed since even
expending maximum effort has not produced results.
