The principle to being working smart is to focus on the best return with reasonable effort by following the strategy of seeking out methodologies that can bring optimal returns from our efforts; reject, give up, or adjust tasks that do not otherwise net good returns. This chapter gives examples of Advance Research Projects Agency (ARPA) and Google, to illustrate the above principle and strategy. It defines rules, such as achieving outstanding results by not seeking perfection, avoiding blunders of overconfidence, and focusing on self‐examination, not on blaming others, when things go awry, which when practiced can help us achieve deftness in being working smart.
