I'm a hard worker and I've always thought the way to succeed was giving everything my 100+ %. Yet my coworkers slack off, are generous with how much time they take off, and we all still get paid the same. I know there's more to work than money and I do want to advance my career, but I also don't want to burn out and watch my coworkers get ahead after not working as hard!
I'm hoping (!) that working hard on the job isn't useless. How can I work hard but smarter?
