微软的 James Whittaker 有篇文章叫 Work Hard You’ll Get There Eventually (hint: no you won’t)，写的挺逗的。其实是挺严肃的一件事。
James 说 Jack Welch 关于努力工作的建议实际上，
contradicts the career strategy that has taken me and many of my contemporaries to the top of our respective fields.
at best, a placebo to make you feel like you are being proactive in managing your career, and, at worse, a slow poison that will prolong your servitude to the corporate machine.
When everyone is working their ass off, working yours off harder or faster won’t get you ahead. It will stretch you thin and stress you out and this stress will, in turn, hold you back. The business world is chock full of hard working people who regularly over deliver and yet are categorically not succeeding. The intersection of overworked and underachieved is a horrible place to be.
I hate this, because it’s not true, and it’s disingenuous.
Jamie 在他早期的日记 the netscape dorm 上加上了醒目的提醒：
Greetings, people of the future!
If someone has linked you to this page, they’re probably trying to con you. Don’t fall for it.
I wrote this twenty years ago. Now is not then. You are being robbed.
