    Default "People who work hard are likely to reach faster to goal than people who work lazily"

    Help me compare
    "People who work hard are likely to reach faster to goal than people who work lazily"
    "People who work hard are likely to reach to the goal faster than people who work lazily"
    Do you think which sentence is correct or more natural?
    In comparative sentences like that, where should we put comparative adjectives?
    Thanks!

    People who work hard are likely to reach to the goal faster than people who work lazily.

    'Work lazily' doesn't sound natural. Can you think of a more appropriate adverb?
