Smart Work versus Hard Work


"You just have to put in 80- to 100-hour weeks every week." Elon Musk


People often talk about smart work and hard work but they find it challenging to differentiate between them. Here is how you can differentiate between them to enable you to work smart to fulfill your dreams and accomplish your goals. When you want to work smart you must know how to work effectively without wasting your time. In fact, smart work is different from hard work and most people emphasize smart work to achieve outcomes quickly. Here are some tips to work smartly:

Find out your biological clock and work accordingly to leverage it effectively to unlock your potential. Biological clock has different meanings globally. Instead of investing your time, energy and resources at wrong time; use them at the time when your body is positive and proactive. Have clarity of mind to understand your priorities and goals.  Be clearly focused on your goals instead of wasting your time on too many activities. Give commands to your subconscious mind before going to bed. Your subconscious mind works more effectively during sleep and you will get solutions in the next day morning.  Additionally, whenever you want to do any activity, look for multiple outcomes instead of a single outcome.   Avoid distractions when you do your tasks. Emphasize excellence instead of perfection. Always do better than what you have done in the past to achieve better results. Invest your efforts religiously without excessively worried about outcomes because when you emphasize more on outcomes rather than efforts you may lose enthusiasm if you don’t achieve the desired outcomes. Sometimes results will take their own time. Take nap in the middle of the day to recharge your mind.


Message

Knowledge is an ocean and life is a journey. You must acquire knowledge regularly and share it with others. You must lead a challenging life and enjoy every moment of it because you have only one life. You will have to do everything in one life only. Hence, enjoy the journey, not the destination.

Free Chapter ― Professor M.S.Rao’s Upcoming Book “School Leadership: Faculty First, Students Second, And Institutions Third”




Dear friends,

I am excited to share with you that I authored a book on educational leadership and life leadership tentatively titled, “School Leadership: Faculty First, Students Second, And Institutions Third.” Here is the free book chapter. I would appreciate if you could share your thoughts about this book on social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.

Education is more than a Religion in India

“The principle goal of education is to create men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.” — Jean Piaget

Indian education system is widely discussed across India but it is hardly addressed with practical solutions. There are innumerable articles published on it but most of them underscore from the perspective of problems, not solutions. Unfortunately, the Indian education is still in doldrums. In this context, we will discuss the challenges and solutions to make it to relevant and vibrant to ensure employability, employment, empowerment and enlightenment.  First, we will discuss educational leadership.


Educational Leadership

Educational leadership is a collaborative process of leading various stakeholders including students, educators, parents and external bodies to ensure quality education to students to build next generation of leaders. At the academic level, it ensures blending curricular and extracurricular activities to shell out students as complete personalities to encounter life challenges successfully.  It ensures employability, employment, empowerment and enlightenment.  


Indian versus Overseas Education

In developed countries especially western countries, the students who have the requisite qualifications, intelligence and ability are only allowed to pursue education and courses. The educators are passionate who do remarkable research in their areas of interests, and add an immense value to the students. The educational institutions are ethical and follow the guidelines strictly. They are transparent and systematic in their approaches, policies and practices. They innovate regularly with new teaching tools and techniques. They emphasize both theory and practice where students have the opportunity to understand and apply their knowledge effectively in the real world scenario.  When students ask questions the educators are competent to respond to their questions since the educators do research regularly. The students have access to quality resources. They interact with other students who are equally brilliant and knowledgeable. Hence, knowledge proliferation and transfer takes place quickly and effectively. Employment opportunities are higher for students because the educational institutions offer great knowledge, skills and abilities. The industry is ready to absorb such students who are well equipped with both knowledge and application. It makes easier for the industry to absorb students because they are proactive with basic level of knowledge and expertise. Hence, overseas education is relatively better than Indian education.


How to Revamp Indian Education?

Indian education is not up to the standards of global education but it has the basic standards and knowledge. Currently it emphasizes 3 Rs ― reading, writing and reproducing. To enhance quality education, there must be adequate emphasis on theory and practice. The students must have passion, basic knowledge and intelligence. The educators must be passionate about making a difference in the lives of students with inclination for research and consultancy. The educational institutions must be ethical, systematic and transparent. There must not be management quota and capitation fee. There must be emphasis on both curricular and extracurricular activities in the educational institutions.

Indian education system must reinvent its teaching pedagogy. It must take risk to explore new ways of teaching pedagogy and research. Although education is basically for enlightenment, it must be for empowerment and employment to help people lead comfortable and meaningful lives.

India is a less developed country with the second largest population in the world. Hence, ensuring quality education is a daunting task. However, it is possible if appropriate steps are taken by inviting the intellectuals to restructure it. Above all, it requires an integrated approach from all stakeholders including educational institutions, parents, students, teachers, government and nonprofits to ensure quality education in India. 


Build Minds and Careers

Build minds to build careers. When you build minds you can build careers of the students. It enlightens them to find their own career paths. Show the light to enable them to find their own paths to become trailblazers. Conventional cliché is to teach people how to catch fish. The unconventional cliché is to show the people where the location of the fish is because presently people are smart enough to learn the art of catching fish.

Indians value education more than money and religion. Every parent wants to provide better education to their children to enable the latter to lead better lives. Hence, emphasize building minds and careers in students.
