One more point out of this Ant story!
I have been lately lecturing on entrepreneurial qualities or lack of
it in some societies. Crude hard work leads one not too far in life.
One can work hard max 14 hours a day for a short stretch. Sleep, eat,
clean, leisure will take up the balance time.
One must be a smart worker to be an entrepreneur and wealth creator.
Trick lies in employing people and getting few hours out of their
shift after pay. Say Mukesh Ambani employs 1 mn pepole and he gets 3
hrs every day from each employee. His profit comes from those 3 mn
hours a day he gets outta his employees. In comparison our hard worker
credited only 14 hours and if he is working for Bill Gates or Mukesh,
you know it already! Lol
