Hard work makes people smart.

Suppose, you have done something, and the second person copied from you. Then who is hard worker and who's smart.

Smart people always lazy. With less knowledge.

Hard work and smart work both are just like two wheels of one vehicle.

It is not as easy to differentiate between these two terms. Because without any hard work, we can't say that this is smart work. Smart work is the driving force of hard work.

Hard work is the first step nd smart one is the second step of to achieving our goals.

Hard work needs some time, dedication, patience, extra efforts, motivation whereas smart work need only hard work.

Hard work is the key of success and smart work is the way of success.

According to me,

Hard work is the work done by following some steps in particular order it can be done equally by everyone.

If we follow,

Whereas smart work is the work which tests the mental ability to do a work. And it is different for everyone.

That means some people can do that work in very short time and less efforts but some people takes time.

According to me, Hard work is using less brain power & long time like we construct a road with labour.

And smart work is using full brain power or short time period like we construct the road with the machine and less labour power or less physical activity.

Thank you.

If I plan to be a manager in my field within five years, with hard work I will get that position after five years, but with smart work I will get it after only three years, therefore it's a method of consuming time.

Smart work will save your time.

Hard work: Working hard implies giving a lot of efforts (mainly physical) to accomplishment a certain task.

Smart Work: It implies using your brain and think before doing anything and find out the easiest way to do that work so that you will have not to give more physical labor. It is using your mental ability.

For me,

Traditional way to do work without any modification in either way or thinking is work. If this work is done with all dedication that'll be hard work.

Smart work is to look for change in traditional way of doing routine work to save both time and money of organization.

Thank you.
