I get mad whenever I hear “work hard” lately. What the f* that means? Do I need to stay in my desk for 16 hours every day? This is what I understand for working hard. I am subscribed to the SDN mail list of IPSpace and this week the email was about this topic and related to network automation. My former CTO told me one day “work smarter, not harder”. I am not very smart, but I try. And one key thing, it is focus.
