throw a few bills into the equation....that's reason enough to have to work hard.
Without food and water you cannot live.
Without money you cannot buy food!
Work equals money equals food equals staying alive!
Sounds somewhat Orwellian :-/
Because it's like 'double speak' compounded. A seeming contradiction, but no, just contrast (and synergy) between hard work and dreaming.
What if I dream about working hard?
then I'm sorry, but I would say - why are you wasting you valuable dream time on something so mundane as work :)
I've dreamed stranger things!
Good! (Haven't we all? LoL)
