As entrepreneurs, we're working harder than ever - in fact almost 50% of business owners clock up more than 50 hours a week in the pursuit of success, sacrificing quality time with their families for long hours in the office or at the laptop.

Why do we work so hard? From a young age, we're told that hard work equals success, but it's a myth. Throughout our lives, this myth is re-enforced on an almost daily basis by messages like: "Work Hard, Play Hard", "Go Heavy or Go Home" and "Work Hard, Dream Big".

The problem is, working harder doesn't work. That's why less than a third of the businesses started by hard-working business owners will survive long enough to see their 10th birthday.

The Hard Work Myth explains the surprising truth behind why working harder is a complete waste of time and uncovers how the world's top entrepreneurs achieve so much, despite working less than the average business owner.

The book is also packed full of practical techniques you can use today to achieve dramatically more, without working a single extra hour.

Stop working ‘harder’, and start working smarter – interesting ideas in @blashbrooke’s latest – The Hard Work Myth
