I am sharing to you statements that may have been a quotable quote. A truism that you believed in. Hear what John L. Mason have to say about them. 

The way to guarantee success is to work smarter, not harder.

This is losing idea. You will find that effective leaders do both. They work smarter, and they work harder.

Activity equals accomplishments.

Activity is not accomplishment. Hard work is not results. We should not ask ourselves whether or not we're busy, but what we're busy about. We serve a God who is interested in results. Each of us will give an account of our own actions, not someone else's.

Take care of things, and they will take care of you.

We should not take care; we should take control. If you don't take control of your own life, somebody else will.

Don't waste (kill) time.

Although this truism expresses a good thought, it is really not accurate. When you waste your time, you waste your life.

If it's not broke, don't fix it.

Even when things are working, they still can be improved.

What you see is what you get.

Christians are not to be moved by what we see but by the Word of God. We are to see the unseen in every situation. The unseen is really more real than the seen .

He is a self-made man.

There is no such thing. A person can succeed only with the help of God and others.

Talk is cheap.

Talk is very expensive. What people say is ultimately what they get and is what they pay for.

Practice makes perfect.

No, perfect practice makes perfect. Wrong practice leads to wrong habits. Perfect practice leads to productive action. Make sure that whatever you do on a regular basis is right.
