According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, our productivity rate is increasing at the slowest rate ever, and yet, I sure you agree, people are working more than ever.Generally, when people say they hard, they mean they putting a lot of time in. What they (generally) don mean is that they put a lot of thought into that work, or that they know what they working on is contributing to something important.Much of this stems from the fact that our economy used to hinge on time.
