Hard Work Won't Make You Successful -- But Doing This Will

I don’t blame anyone who has become frustrated and disillusioned with the working world. It is a huge disappointment to grow up and realize that most of what we’ve been taught about how to be successful is bad advice. We were taught “Just work hard at whatever job you get, and things will work out.” That’s false. Working hard at your job does not get you much. When you work hard at a job where the boss doesn’t value your efforts, all your hard work gets you is taken for granted. Just working hard by itself will exhaust you and shorten your lifespan without any benefits to you. There has to be more to success than merely working hard, or millions of people around the world would be a lot more successful than they are!

But don't trash your old TV just yet.
As I mentioned above, it'll only work with content filmed in HDR, which is slightly limiting as much of the content filmed until now has not been filmed in HDR. It's a similar dilemma that 4K TVs are facing, as there's relatively little 4K content to play on them. 
And while we expect that more content will be filmed in HDR (and 4K) as time goes on, we wouldn't be surprised if a new technology that looks even better crops up just as more HDR content is available.
