Imagine if our paychecks were determined by the effort we put into our jobs. Not by rank. Not by degree. Not by hours. But by EFFORT, las ganas que le echamos!!
Or it has been called HORAS NALGA, that is BUTT HOURS…how long you worked on the project…how many neurons were used and burned to get the job done…
I’ve seen it in teaching. It can take a nerd like me 2 hours to investigate and prepare my class or it can take 10 minutes before class a quick read through the topic…the outcome is the same: 50minutes in front of the students, giving it your all and hoping for the best…

It’s hard to put a price on EFFORT, on CREATIVITY, on ORIGINALITY.
How much can we charge for being who we are and doing what we love when it just comes naturally. Because I feel that you need to have THAT kind of personality.
The kind that gives it all to the job, the kind that won’t settled for the most obvious, much less apply the very common LEY DEL MÍNIMO ESFUERZO or LAW OF THE LEAST EFFORT, which states that the best approach to getting things done is the one where the least stress, strength, brain power, time is required from you…how about that?!
And many do have that ‘law’ as their work ethic, as their motto…
But how can EFFORT, CREATIVITY and ORIGINALITY be measured and then be converted into a well deserved paycheck?
Meanwhile, let’s give it all we’ve got and let the boss know!!
