Nigerian author, Reno Omokri, has advised fans to work smart rather than work hard.
He gave this advice in a recent Instagram post, where he insisted that honesty is a virtue but poverty is not.
The author further stated that while it is good to be hardworking, it does not pay if one does not work smart.
Read what he wrote below:
“I read an actor’s write up about a poor, hardworking and honest man who treats his wife like a Queen. Not possible! If you are poor, hardworking and honest, you can treat your wife well. But even in Scripture, it takes MONEY to look after a Queen! There are 16 queens mentioned by name in Scripture, of which the most Godly was Esther. It took a great expense to transform Esther into a Queen. Let us not give youths unrealistic expectations. HONESTY is a virtue, but POVERTY is not a virtue. As for HARD-WORK, it is not necessarily a virtue, though it is not bad. HARD-WORK does not PAY. It KILLS! It ages you before your time. If HARD-WORK PAID everyone will want to be a labourer. What PAYS, is SMART WORK. A SHARP ax cuts a TREE faster than a DULL one.”
