Success is more than just hard work

Tom Peters highlights a statement made about Ben Franklin in his autobiography’s Introduction by Professor Kenneth Silverman:

“He not only worked hard but also arranged to be noticed doing so, . . .”

This is key insight for anyone with ambition. Hard work alone will satisfy your human nature to “pitch in” – but without proper acknowledgement/praise/rewards for your endeavors you will find yourself longing for appreciation.

It takes finesse to “toot your own horn” without it being percieved as bragging. It sounds like Franklin had this concept figured out.
