Well when you put it like that

Well when you put it like that. It's a long read but funny also not mine i do not own it i just found it funny . Don' t Work Hard. Work Intelligent. Wait. What

It's a long read but funny also not mine i do not own it i just found it funny

Don' t Work Hard.
Work Intelligent.
Wait. What exactly is the message being conveyed here? “Feel free
to sabotage the product fer the sake of making your own job easier"?
This worker just removed EBM, of the material he was assigned to
transport! If one of his outworkers removed 4? ' s of his cube to
simply make a smaller cube. he' d probably move faster. too.
Mill if the guy is going to carve up his cube. why wouldn' t he carve it
into K'. cylinder? It would 's' it' r' -,', as mobile as a sphere. but he' d only have
to remove 22% of his cube. and it would require less time to carve.
While we' re on the subject... how fast did this worker carve a sphere
out of Fil, cube? and with that little knife?! It looks like he didn' t lose
any headway at all. Do you know how hard it is to carve a perfect
sphere out of a cube? That' s some Ron Swanson **** right there.
if the goal is to deliver an entire cube. then the intelligent guy has failed.
if the goal is to deliver as much of the material as quickly as possible.
then he should have just cut the at comers off the cube. an octagonal
prism would work just fine. with less material and time wasted.
Elf course. when these workers arrive at their destination. they may
ll' ,' required to stack the objects. In this case. the intelligent worker
has delivered an object that won' t stack. Bravo. intelligent worker!

Be that as it may, whoever made this picture demonstrated the concept in a poor way.
User avatar #50 to #44 - tabarzins (11/18/2013) [-]
Yea no need to make it a sphere when you could make it a cylinder.
Or to take it one step further, you could make the surface some sort of Reuleaux polygon with the greatest area. Then you would have to cut off even less and it might be easier to roll.

I gave it some thought, and the fault is that OP is assuming the square is their merchandise, their goods. I say the square is their career, their work ethic; you're shaving off preconceived notions and bad habits that are pervasive in business.
#4 - pineapplemcgee (11/17/2013) [-]
If taken in the literal sense, then yes that guy is in idiot, but if you look at the meaning, its saying "Get this done faster and easier with the same result" and i think the cubes are the peoples goals in life.
User avatar #118 to #4 - asimplepotato (11/18/2013) [-]
But then you don't get the same result, you cut it down, according to the guy who commented, by as much as 47%

So you could say it's easier and faster to aim for something smaller.

Whoever wrote this is ******* stupid

The cube does not represent the product. it represents the obstacle, the amount of work you need to put into something in order to make progress.
It is the distance covered that represents the actually end result/product.

You can either do it the traditional way and work hard and push a cube.
Or you can be smart, innovate, and push a ball which is easier.

He had a point about the cylinder though.
User avatar #106 to #87 - EZy (11/18/2013) [-]
if thats the case then he should reduce the distance needed to get the work done not make the trip eaiser. If you need to use a tool often it may be worth it to just have the tool at the job rather then go and get it every time its needed.

so by your say the guy should have a finish line sooner then everyone elses.
#123 to #87 - novus (11/18/2013) [-]
I think OP's point is that often short cuts lead to deficient products or actually end up taking longer (time spent carving the cube). I'm all for intelligent work, but I have seen many many cases of people trying to be "smart" and making a huge mess of things.

#135 to #87 - superblargh (11/18/2013) [-]
Carving a perfect sphere is pretty ******* hard and probably takes longer to do so than to actually transport the cube. (Distance is not given but I'm assuming it's not that much)


I'm all in for the message, but that picture just wasn't the way to portray it, in my opinion.
User avatar #98 to #87 - Lainge (11/18/2013) [-]
Hey dickcheese, that's all well and good.
But you're basing that on an assumption. Representation means nothing when you can't back it up with facts.
So OP can interpret however he wants, all we know is that the "intelligent" worker has potentially ****** up.
Potentially they did well, but there's no way to guarantee it.

you see the person who wrote that is a buffoon. hes trying to act like he knows everything about the message being conveyed and also what the people in the picture are doing. he makes an assumption based on what he sees in a picture when thats not nearly good enough, and to make it worse hes coming across in the douchiest of ways as if he knows hes 100% correct. the way he comes across he sounds as though he knows for a fact that the goal was to get an intact cube to the destination. if these guys were supposed to transport something then the foreman/boss/whatever would give them, instructions. if these instructions did not include the words "you must get a cube to x place and it must remain whole at all times" then technically making a sphere is fair game. i think we can all assume that if the man was given the job the person who gave them the job would provide them with the most detailed set of instructions as possible as he is just a worker, and he has to get paid for the work that is done no matter what. it would not immediately hurt him if he sabotaged the product, and although it can be argued that this is the reason why he would carve a sphere because it doesnt hurt him, he can be disciplined and fired from the job, which would be the main reason why if there were any rules regarding keeping the cube in an un-altered state he would need to follow the rules
User avatar #145 to #140 - vapaus (11/18/2013) [-]
Though you don't come off any better than he, mostly due to the antagonistic approach. Your solutions also fair no better than his as well. His point is still as valid as can be, there is no arguing that whatever task he is given, he did it in a very impractical way.

The way you state it almost immediately made it seem that this worker is either supposed to disregard what might be implied his main objective or that whatever objective it is has provided them with the most ineffective way of solution. The way I see it, if instructed to transport the object, I highly doubt he would be allowed to tamper with it, for I have not heard of a delivery job that allowed this or at least would not be deeply annoyed by the lack of common sense not to harm the package.

No matter how this is viewed, either the instructor is doing something wrong by not giving the men the most efficient way to conclude their objective, or the men are not listening properly to instruction. I, personally, find the cube-pushers more respectable for being patient in completing the objective. They may take longer, but they get more of the job done in the end. If the piece doesn't have to be in one whole, then they would need to transport not only the carved shape, but also all of the debris that they shave off, making it take more time and also extra resources most likely not provided.

Its geometry time!
For simplicity's sake I am gonna assume that its a perfect sphere and that its diameter is the same as one side of the cube.

Volume of a cube = x^3

Volume of a sphere = 4/3 pi r^3

so lets just say the cube is 2 units long. The volume of the cube is then 8 units cubed.
The volume of the sphere will then be 4/3 pi (the radius is 1 unit) which is 4.18879 units cubed.

52.36% of the cube remains.
~MATHS!
User avatar #9 - beatentoast (11/17/2013) [-]
Im sure its contrasting between to effort needed to push the cube vs the sphere. Because the man took the time to carve the cube his time was spent more efficiently and created and it easier to move the object. This is why I ******* hate literature analysis, so many things are take to some ******* stupid existential **** .

TL;DR: **** YOU OP YOU'RE A FAGGOT

#47 - infinitereaper (11/18/2013) [-]
Okay, [edgy intensifies]
Let's look at this picture. Looks like the dude had time to carve the material and get ahead of the curve.
Assuming the 47% loss if the dude is able to transport twice as many spheres then you will see a 3% increase in profits.
Giving the guy some credit, and considering that he carved and got a ahead, lets say he's able to move at least 2.5 spheres. In the same time it takes a cube. That would be a rough 29.5% increase in profit.
Lets say the monthly profit is $10,000 (for sake of example small and easy number)
Smart pants over here will have pumped profit to ( **** how do I proportion?) okay $2,950 extra a month or $35,400 extra a year assuming year round production.

Sure this wastes material but the bottom line is profit and profit is all that matters besides if smart man carried a bag we could just carry the extra material on his back. Oh wait wow.

Actually this could potential double output, and without the wasted material 2 spheres per square would equal 100% extra profit.

So yeah, don't work hard, work intelligent.

It's all about efficiency.
User avatar #63 to #47 - demystify (11/18/2013) [-]
Let's re-evaluate.
Those cubes cost $80 per cube in materials, and they can be sold at a mark-up of $20 apiece. (That's a 25% mark-up, which is pretty hefty if the things are being sold in bulk.)
We'll assume that they are being sold by weight, so 47% of that sale equates to $47 - the cubes can now only be sold for $53, with $27 counted off as waste.
Now we're selling cubes at a $27 deficit as opposed to a $20 profit.

From that point on, it doesn't matter how many spheres you're hauling, you're accruing more debt in shaving them. Those cubes aren't pure profit, they presumably have a cost associated with them. In fact, I didn't even account for the cost of the man's wages.
