The Difference Between Working Hard And Working Smart

Ika nga ng iba work now enjoy later

Marami tayong gustong gawin sa buhay.

We want to take a vacation…
We want to get involved in mission work…
We want to do charitable works…
We want to take a break and more!

There are so many things that we want to do. But at the end of the day, napapaisip tayo if it is the right time to do these things and do we have the resources to do them?

I???m not saying na for us to be successful sa buhay, dapat walang bakasyon, walang break, dapat subsob sa trabaho. Syempre, we should know our priority. Ano ang mga dapat nating unahin at ano naman ang mga bagay na maaari namang makapaghintay?

Sometimes we need to make short term sacrifices so that we can have long term gain. Ika nga ng iba, ???work now, enjoy later???.
Sa mga estudyante, bago maglaro ng Clash of Clans, mag-review muna. Sa mga nagtatrabaho, tapusin muna ang mga deadline bago mag-happy-time. Hindi masamang mag-enjoy, nararapat lang na ine-enjoy natin ang fruits ng ating mga labor, but we should make sure that we work hard before we play hard. Huwag puro relax at laro tapos magtataka tayo bakit di tayo umaasenso.

If we really want to succeed, we need to do the following:


We often hear people tell us that working hard is one of the key ingredients for success. I perfectly agree! But even before working hard, I subscribe to the idea that we need also to be SMART WORKERS. Kahit bugbog ang katawan natin sa pagtatrabaho, kung hindi naman tayo madiskarte, maabilidad, at matalino sa pagtatrabaho, balewala rin. Mapapagod lang tayo at mabu-burn out.

???Eh Chinkee, how do I work smart ba????

Simple lang. Plan before you execute. Lahat ng gagawin mo ay dapat planuhin bago mo papasukin. Because may kasabihan nga na,???If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.???

Pag-aralan mong mabuti ang mga strategy na gagawin mo; paano mo ma-overcome yung mga challenges na madadaanan mo; sino ang mga taong pwedeng tumulong sa iyo; kailan ang target date mo para ma-achieve ang mga objectives mo and more.

If you do that, kalkulado mo lahat, even the risk and obstacles, tantyado mo. Nabawasan mo na ang malaking pagkakataon na ikaw ay matalo.

Working smart means planning and planning means saving a lot of energy, time and resources, resulting to success.


Celebrate success!
Enjoy the fruit of your labor.
Reward yourself.
Bakit ka pa nagtatrabaho kung hindi mo ine-enjoy ang pinagpaguran mo?
Learn to play hard after working hard.
It is important that we rest and enjoy our accomplishments.

Hi there, Mr. Chink Positive here.

For richer & For Poorer

No one wants to stay poor and penniless. There are lots of books out there that talk about just that – getting rich and getting rich fast. Books authored by successful businessmen and motivational speakers that try to convince us that their advice is the best way to get rich. Becoming a millionaire has become one of the main goals of most people.

I’ve found that, while ther is no fool-proof way to get rich, there are some principles that we can learn that will definitely increase our chances of getting rich. My goals in writing this book are to Inform, Educate, and Motivate. Finally, it is also my goal to Disturb you.


RENEW and Change your mindset to chink positive 
REFOCUS your PERSPECTIVE to look at the positive not on the negative. 
OVERCOME trials, hardships, failures, challenges or even depression.

To be INSPIRE and be EMPOWERED so that you also inspire and empower others.


Let’s face it, everyone wants to become rich. Some have even dedicated their lives to pursue riches, making it part of their lifelong dream.

But here’s one important thing we need to understand: money is just a means to something, but it is never the end. In other words, money is merely a tool to buy something.
