An excerpt from a christian prayer: "Gloria in excelsis Deo". The leitmotiv of personal productivity is "Effort doesn't count. Just results."
I can't agree. Efforts count regardless of results: you can obtain peace on earth by mean of your good will. And this is quite a result (no pun intended).
P.S.: In the english version of the "Gloria", they lost the meaning of this verse: "Peace to His people on earth" is less... ecumenic than "on earth peace to men of good will".
