I think hard work without being smart results in a waste of time and energy. we may do hard work, drain our energy and give a certain outcome and the same outcome could be achieved by doing the same work in a smart way. for example drawing water from well directly using a rope and bucket would be very tiresome but using a pulley and drawing the same bucket full of water will not only be easier but also, time-saving. This is called working hard in a smart way. thank you, everyone.

First, I would like to thank you for giving me an opportunity.

My Topic: "Hard work or Smart work - Which is important".

I think both are two sides of the same coin. In today's busy world, Both hard work & smart work takes us to the next level of success. For eg one should do smart work:

* When he has deep knowledge of this work.

So that he can think new ideas or ways to do the work. (For getting deep knowledge one should do Hard work).

* Hard-work is time taking and difficult.

But it is true that hard work is the origin of smart work. So one must do hard work today for doing smart work in future.

As a conclusion, I can say that smart work is very important in today's fast life. Can achieve your goals faster. But to achieve that stage one should do hard work in the background. "Work hard and the success will be your".

Thank you.

According to me without hard work cannot achieve the success. Without success cannot to do the smart work.

Eg: 1+1+1+1+1 = 5 // Hard work.

1*5 = 5 // Smart work (5 from hard work).

Smart work depend on hart work. We must find five how to come, because only (1+1+1+1+1 = 5) then only we perform (1*5 = 5).

Suppose give, 1+1+1+1+1+1= ? // Hard work.

1*5 = 5.

Without hard work smart work is wrong (1*6 = 6 is correct).

Hello everyone,

In my opinion there is no era for doing hard work or doing the same smartly. Of course this is the trend of smart worker, but these people don't understand that the foundation of their work still lies at someone's hard work.

Hard workers are not the ones who waste their time doing lots of work, rather they are creative thinker who takes some time to device new thinks and serve the world. Smart worker can only satisfy their need but they can't become an example for others.

I think smart work is better than hard work. I give only one example, in the industry we use labors but they take too much time for doing a work but if we think in smart way means we use machines.

In this era where people are growing in very fast rate, you should also have to tighten your belt.

Smart work saves lots of time. It uses resources effectively. But can make you lazy. Hard Work can kill your time, but this is a learning process to become smart worker later.

Smart work requires proper and full usage of resources in and around. Resources are visible, only to the people who think before they start working on it.

Hardworking people do not want to spend time, in thinking process in the beginning and hence may reach to the goal or task with a delay.

Smart work is logical thinking, it can achieve your goals easily, it's saves a lot of time and make you more organized. Hard work is think professionally that means practical thinking, hard work is exhausting experience because after doing a lot of work left you with less energy to do anything else. So, I would conclude smart work can achieve your goals faster than hard work.

In my opinion smart work is more important and more desirable than hard work. Hard work is working hard or practicing more for a particular task or goal.

In other words we can say hard work is learning the principles to reach the goal. And smart work is applying those principles at the right time.

For example, we are practicing and learning how to kick the ball. Now we are playing the football match and are not able to kick the ball. The result of working hard is zero.

So, atlast I want to say that hard work along with smart work is the key to success. :).

Hard work and smart work both lead to a path of success but what is to be noted is that with smart work you reach the path faster. So why take a long route when you have a shorter one. Smart work inevitably uses hard work. How can a person work smart if one's mind doesn't work hard? So I would like to conclude that hard work and smart work go hand in hand. A work may seem smart to a person but it does involve hard work to be smart.

According to me smart work is more desirable than hard work as hard work requires more time and more energy whereas smart work requires less time and less energy.

Basically it is the combination of both that gives us the desired results. But I would like to put forward a fact that hard work is essential for smart work. Working smart is to enhance the results of hard work. Hard work is like a chemical reaction and smart is the catalyst to improve the rate of reaction.

We are familiar to "smart phones". But was the smartphone invented first or did it all begin with conventional phones? Did wireless technology come first or the conventional one?

It is hard which results into development by smart work. If we stop hard work, we stop further development.

Because it tells you how to work, how to spend your time, and how to do hard work. If one does hard work he. Almost doesn't have the capability of doing things faster. But a smart worker knows how to do it and in what way he can achieve the goal in the desired time besides doing hard work.

When you work for what you believe then it is not a hard work, it becomes hard work when it is an obligation. You will enjoy your work when you do it from your own passion, only when you will love your work. But hard working does not means to work in a draggy way for 10 or 12 other, it means try your best to do a job with your highest capability to deliver the best quality. So if you deliver always the best then you will be always recognized.

Smart work means delivering the job with min resources with a quality level just required. In today's world of high competition everybody has to sustain so if you are doing only a work a work with great attention then you a miss other thing you have to do. Others will go across you. So you need to be smart enough too to be in competition. So there must be a balance between hard work and smart work. Being smart, managing priorities, intelligently balancing different aspects of life, being focused on career and emotional balance helps in a big way.

But challenge to every problem has grown. Time is less and work is more. Ability to do hard work is what everyone can do but the one who does smart work is the real winner.

It is the time when time should be managed carefully and it is possible only with smart work. Giving stress to the brain will increase the power of it and also its usage can be seen in future. Nowadays smart work is admired the most.

Hard work is all about using the physical resources and smart work is all about using brain and logic and strategy. Hard work needs more time to achieve the goal but smart work help to achieve the task in short period of time. Hard is basically means think less more work but smart work is. Think more. Less work.

Firstly I would like to say that in this world generally in official life there are two sort of person, first is that who proceed at initial stage and get success by putting their leg on the head of others i.e. by taking the credit of others in other words they can also be said to be the cheaters, their process of getting success is the smart without doing the hard labour but these sort of success achievers generally don't go at the top because they don't have the basic knowledge of what they have presented till now.

But the second type of person is that who firstly works hard and gets the understanding of matters then on the basis of those understanding the use their hard work in smart way who has fully understanding of what they have done and on query of the same they can well explain that. As for example generally works are done in office on the excel sheet then at the starting stage one has to put the basic datas in that sheet by doing hard labour then only they can make the presentation of that data in smart way by using vlookup, hlookup, pivot table and many more use of excel.

Hence in my view both of the hard labour and smart labour in pertinent to have the achievement of success.

Smart work is important in life. We can achive only if we have learnt to work hard. Thinking, acting fast is the need of the hour. If we are smart enough then we can sell ourselves in this competative world.

In my point of view hard work and smart work both are necessary. But at present era smart work is more important, otherwise you may come across a situation where your fellow members take the credit of your work.

One should work hard to complete the task, but should always do smart work while presenting it.

Hello friends.

I agree with the statement actually the difference between the hard work and smart work is. Hard work means working hardly to get the success and smart work means doing the same work by using some logic's and experiences and "i believe that we learn smart work only going through the hard work. And a smart work is always desirable when compare to a hard work.

I think Hard work is necessary when you are at very initial phase of your work, you need to collect all those information which is required, then how smartly and efficiently you put those into practice is your Smart Work.

Experience teaches you all how to work smartly but to get those experience you need to work hard. I think both Hard Work and Smart Work re inter related. Smart work is absolutely necessary to achieve your goal within desirable time.

Let me give an example of Smart Work-.

2 men cutting the tree, Person A took 8 hours to cut it and Person B took 5 hours to do the same job. Its because person B use to sharpen his knife for every one hour. Here Person B is a Smart Worker and Person A a Hardworker.

It is very true that by working hard we can achieve success but it is not important that the success would be a real success.

eg: if one study day and night without preparing a time table don't know to manage time don't know what to study first and last he can't achieve success to utmost.

Smart work means the work done to fulfill some requirement or we can say to get our aim BUT hard work means the work done to get complete knowledge about something. It is such as the diff. Between a professor and a qualifier as well as diff. Between to get the selection and to get the knowledge.

Hard work : when you use your physical efforts more than your mental effort.

Smart work : when you give priority to your mental ability more than physical ability.

I want to refer to a story : there were two woodcutters in a jungle. One cuts trees for 12 hours a day and other for 6 hours. But the woodcutter who works less cut more trees than other one because he sharpens his Axe after every hour.

Now you can easily differentiate between hard work and smart work.

According to my notion hard work and smart work go simultaneously, but with hard work you achieve your goal but in a one point you also want some smart work. As we all know donkey also do a hard work, so why its not a successful person there is a one reason behind that it not use a smart work. For instance rickshaw puller also do hard work but stand no where. Smart work = clever, you saw lots of people who use cleverness in front of people they got more progress rather than the hard work. In this world successful are those person who put all efforts in his work. Hard work +smart work = successful person. So all the best guys for your goal "jai hind".

I concede that both hard work and smart work are not mutually exlusive but rather they are inter connected and depending from situation to situation, the kind of work to be done is decided. Hard work requires sincere and dedicated efforts from one's end and for putting those efforts one has to have some goal in his life. Also, hard work gives you that confidence to face any situation in life.

At the same time, in certain situations, when the urgency of task is so high, then acting smartly will be quite useful in that case.

In sum, both hard work and smart work are required to get things done in an efficient way.

Both smart working and hard working are equally important to succeed. Most of the time it depends on the circumstances as well on the tasks which one should be applied.

For instance look at the people working on the construction sites, they work very hard and stand nowhere.

The fact remains that hard work and smart work must go hand in hand for you to be successful. Smart work is about making the right strategy, about following a disciplined work culture. Hard works translates your vision and ideas into results.

Helloz guys and gals.

I want to say something, suppose if we have to go on 5th floor of a building for our interview or any other essential work. If one person selects stairs to go and another one uses stairs. Then I can confidentially say that the person who used stair that will definitely reach to his destination. But the one who used lift he can be late by some technical problem in the lift.

And "here lift is smart work and stair is hard work".

I'm not saying that we should have hard work with smartly but if I have to choose the one then I say that hard work is better than smart work.

Yes, hard work is must to achieve the success in life, because without hard work its not possible to reach your goal. But to get success on correct timing we need to be perform smartworking, as there is not only single person in que of strugling for carrier groth and successe, we are standing around the mob of competeters. So accordingly we have to take decision how we can do our work in proper and better way to get the best result.

Smart work is desirable. Because hard work done by the physical parts of the body. Where as Smart work done by the intellectual brain. Today in our global environment smart work is necessary to do the work. This means only smart work is not necessary do the hard work it leads to the smart way. Getting the experience it leads to the smart way. And also time factor is also one factor whether we do the hard work or smart work. So Hard work and smart work is desirable.

I feel that hard work and smart work go parallel together in life. I dont understand why do people try to club or categorize that with you job profile, level of working or position etc. Extent of hardness / toughness in efforts depends on the kind of task in front.. But smartness of efforts always prevails. People at all levels of life (professional or personal) need to work smart every time. All have to work hard But extent of hardness of their efforts depends on their job profile. Senior positioned people delegate and monitor the down line people and get the desired work extracted from his down line...!!!

As per my point of view, smart work is desirable. If we are doing particular work smartly it takes lesser time to complete the task & remaining time can be utilized to do some other activities or task.
Let's take an example - If we are doing particular task in excel & if we are doing the same activities day by day & it takes 1 hr to complete the taks then in such instances if we are creating micro then it will helps us to complete the task within a minutes instead of putting more effort It is called smart work.

Let me give some examples which clear this problem. Parents need to make their children study well. For this some parents will keep on advising their child and they will scold and force them to study.
But if you take smart thinking parents they will keep some twist and turn. They will encourage their child by saying if you get good marks i will buy you mobile phones. So to get phone the child will start learn and get good marks.
So we can achieve our goal easily by doing smart work than hard work.

Hard worker: One who work's by his own passion and ability.

Smart worker: One who copies what others [great men] have done already and who adjusts his/her valuable time into other fruitful actions which would be good for the organization.

So, Work smartly as sometimes we do hard work but if there is nothing to be visible then, our time and energy spent will be a mere waste.

Hello to all of you. Let me give you an example which will clear our concepts. Suppose someone has given a work to move a stone from one place to other without any cart or transport.

Now one way is to push the stone to that particular place. (It need a lot of hard work).

Other option is to use a stick and a small stone. By using these two one can make lever and easily roll the stone to that particular place. (It will also need hard work but not as much as before).

So we can say "Doing the hard work smartly will lead to the success".

'Hard' means degree of effort we put on our work to get it done and 'smart' means the attitude, approach we follow to get out work done. And to complete our work we should follow a "can do", positive attitude, planned approach to do our work with utmost efficiency and perfection-this constitutes smartness, so WE SHOULD DO HARD WORK SMARTLY.
